At one level, a niche study of an obscure work in Sanskrit which occasioned considerable opprobrium amongst his contemporaries in India, my article demonstrates the importance of Satchidanandendra’s study and his engagement with key questions of memory, personal identity and consciousness that continue to engage philosophers across the world today.
