Some of the books written by Rambhadracharya

Sanskrit commentaries on the Prasthānatrayī[change | change source]

Rambhadracharya made Sanskrit commentaries named Śrīrāghavakṛpābhāṣyam on the Prasthanatrayi – Brahma Sutra, the Bhagavad Gita, and eleven Upanishads. These commentaries were released on 10 April 1998 by the then Prime Minister of India, Atal Behari Vajpayee.[2][20] He made Śrīrāghavakṛpābhāṣyam on Narada Bhakti Sutra in 1991. Rambhadracharya then renewed—after five hundred years—the tradition of Sanskrit commentaries on the Prasthanatrayi. His commentary was also the second Sanskrit commentary on Prasthanatrayi of Ramananda Sampradaya, an the first was made by Ramananda himself and it was named Ānandabhāṣyam.[21][22] Rambhadracharya's commentary in Sanskrit on the Prasthanatrayi was the first written in almost 600 years.[21]

Critical edition of Ramcharitmanas[change | change source]

Rambhadracharya's most controversial work was the critical edition of the Ramcharitmanas. It was published as the Tulsi Peeth edition.[23] It was said that he changed the epic,[23][24] but the dispute ended when Rambhadracharya said sorry for any problem caused by the publication.[25] A writ was also filed against him but it was not accepted.[1] This edition was published in 2005 by Shri Tulsi Peeth Seva Nyas.[2][10]
