tarka saṅgraha

tarka saṅgraha is the famous introductory text for tarka shāstra. The mūla is first studied, and it is then studied again along with the author’s own commentary, the dīpikā. Since the dīpīkā opens the door to the study of advanced texts such as the celebrated gādhādharī, the dīpīkā is also known as the bāla gādhādharī.

nyāya siddhānta muktāvalī

The nyāya siddhānta muktāvalī is a commentary on the kārikāvalī (bhāṣhā pariccheda). Together, they form a comprehensive text outlining the combined nyāya / vaiṣheśhika school. It is typically studied after the tarka saṅgraha.
