AK Aruna Vedanta Documents and Texts Index


Index to All the Vedanta Documents & Sanskrit Dictionaries

These are Advaita Vedanta Texts and Sanskrit Dictionaries in their original Sanskrit that help reveal what everyone wants to know about themselves. These Vedanta texts, plus the dictionaries are many times more in quantity and quality than the versions prior to Jan 2017. They are still a work in process as there are many more Sanskrit commentaries yet to be added to these texts, and there is room for more editing enhancements such as vocabularies and Sanskrit anvayas for the verses. These offerings are for your studies and may be freely distributed.
