Most Muslim scholars have laid down certain basic conditions for sound Tafsir.waht i have experienced that quran tafsir depend on the mentality of scholar or translator that's why most of them are completely failed to produce perfect tafsir..

Absolutely true.  And their mentality is linked with the contents of the Hadith in one way or another.  These tafsir writers have been taught the false notion since their childhood that "hadith explains the Quran,"  for that reason they keep twisting whichever verse they explain by trying to fix some hadith narration with it.  

The interpretation of the Quran by the Quran is the highest source of tafsir and the prectice of prophet(pbuh).which cannot be matched nor superseded by any other.the Quran have their explanation in other parts of the very same book, and often there is no need to turn to any sources other than the word of Allah, which in itself contains tafsir.and its so beautiful to see that!

MashAllah, so wisely and correctly said sister Muslima.   This also reminds me of Verse 114 of Chapter 20, Surah Ta Ha.  

وَقُل رَّبِّ زِدْنِى عِلْماً
("and say: "My Lord! Increase me in knowledge.")

One might ask what knowledge Allah is referring to - religious knowledge or worldly knowledge. Well, I would say, it refers to the ability to grasp the truth about the Noble Quran.  This will further help us to grasp the meaning & purpose of academic knowledge we learn in school, college and university.  As Muslims, we cannot separate religion from worldly life.  Religion is a part of our daily life.  Therefore, right perception of the Quran creates a right perception of life as well.

Quran itself  The best Tafsir is the explanation of the Quran.
The explanation of the Prophet (he was best example of the prectice of quran ) we dont need anyother source of tafsir

Agree 100%.   The Quran is a standalone and independent Book.  It needs to be understood independently and NOT be made dependent on man-written sources.   Quran itself is its best tafsir .. so correctly said sister.  Allah bless u for your intelligent outlook.  And this is precisely what I think means by "knowledge" (عِلْماً) in Verse 20:114.
