Prasnavali, a less-known yet important treatise, ascribed to Jadabharata, poses fifty-two fundamental questions on Monistic Philosophy. Novelty of this book lies in its question-answer technique provided for both teaching and propagation of Advaita Vedànta in an easy way. In spite of being small in size, the work covers almost all the important topics expected to be known by a devotee or a learner. There may be different groups of scholars and students of Vedanta affiliated to various mathas who long for finding proper answers to the queries that arise in this field from time to time. Jadabharata earnestly took up this uphill task through this treatise. Thus he deserves a special credit for creating interest in Advaitism among the people belonging to the community of both the learners and devotees.
