Adhyātmarāmāyaṇe’pāṇinīyaprayogāṇāṃ Vimarśaḥ (English: Deliberation on non-Pāṇinian usages in the Adhyatma Ramayana) is a comprehensive Saṃskṛta essay (Nibandha) in around 50,000 words, authored in 1981 by Gurudeva (then known as Ācārya Giridharalāla Miśra Prajñācakṣu). The work was spontaneously composed by Gurudeva and dictated over thirteen days in 1981. It was presented as a doctoral thesis (Śodhaprabandha) at the Sampurnanand Sanskrit University, for which the degree of Vidyāvāridhi (Ph.D.) was conferred upon Gurudeva on October 24 1981.

The work remained in the format of a typed manuscript for thirty years. In 2012, our website volunteer Nityānanda Miśra started efforts to publish a digital version. The first edition of the text in HTML format, edited and referenced with citations by Nityānanda Miśra, was released for free reading on June 30 2013. The second edition of the work, also in HTML format, was released on October 1 2013. The second edition corrected several orthographic and editorial errors in the first edition.

The current PDF and HTML edition of the work is the third edition, released on October 22 2015. This edition corrects orthographic and editorial errors in the first and second editions and adds nearly 1,200 footnotes by Nityānanda Miśra providing additional references and derivations.
