This text is a masterly deconstruction of Jiva Gosvami's svakiya-vada. Due to Rupa Kaviraja's loss of status in the Gaudiya sampradaya, it has been pretty much forgotten. This, along with Radha Krishna Gosvamin's Dasa-sloki-bhasya and Visvanatha Cakravartin's Svakiya-parakiya vicara combine to make a devastating critique of Jiva's position.

I first typed this text out when I was in London, ca. 1990. I had completely forgotten about it when I discovered the disk while cleaning house. A couple of days of concerted correcting and adding the footnotes and voilà , here it is, ready for the world.
