General
RDF users may be interested in our metadata (also embedded in this page).   A catalog of releases is also available.

Our documents are all PDF files, and can be opened using Adobe Reader 5.0 or later. If you have trouble opening a file directly off the web, try saving it locally and then opening it.

As of midnight local time on 2014-04-16, there were 582 downloadable files, adding up to 76038452 bytes.

Releases
These are E-Books that we have painstakingly edited, and are provided with some supplementary material or aids for study.

Shorter Works
These are short stotra-s and other works that are also corrected, but are provided without supplements. There is of course no guarantee that any of these (or the Releases) is completely error-free (and every likelihood that errors remain), but these documents should match or exceed the standards of correctness found elsewhere.

Papers
These are contemporary academic writings of possible interest to readers of our websites. Opinions expressed in these are those of the authors.

Pre-releases
These are texts presently being proofed and edited. A relatively large number of errors is likely, but these may nonetheless be useful. Reports of errors are solicited.

Etiquette
Our texts must not be used for any kind of commercial purpose, and they must not be made available on other servers or other media without our knowledge and consent (to ensure that outdated versions do not propagate).   All rights are reserved.   Contact us if you have any questions or if you wish to mirror some part of this site.
