Collations and editions

These transcriptions are being collated and processed through Charles Li’s Saktumiva platform for producing and publishing critical editions of Sanskrit texts.

There, you can read the various transcriptions individually, or collate and compare them in the manner of a critical edition. The most evolved part of the project is the edition of the Kakṣapuṭa section of the fourth adhyāya.

For other parts of the work, at different stages of editing, see:


Research assistants who have worked on this project include Madhusudana Rimal, Deepro Chakraborty, Jane Allred, Vandana Lele and Harshal Bhatt.

Financial support for this project has been provided from the Singhmar Chair endowment grant and the Kule Institute for Advanced Study, both at the University of Alberta.
