Encoding Description

Editorial Description

The published edition from which this e-text was transcribed is printed in the Devanāgarī script. The electronic text below is in a lossless transliteration using the Latin alphabet. The transliteration scheme used is the IAST (The International Alphabet of Sanskrit Transliteration). IAST differs in small ways from ISO 15919, but is preferred by most working Sanskrit scholars. Conversion of this file to ISO 15919 can be achieved by performing the following replacements throughout the file: ṛ -> r̥ and ṃ -> ṁ

Text divison is as Devanāgarī ("ityevam" not "ity evam".)

Only some of the footnotes from the edition have been typed in this file.

Prose passages are enclosed in ab-elements. Verses were enclosed in lg- and l-elements, but this is not consistent. So it is possible to find verses that are either not marked up as such or enclosed in an ab-element.

Initial vowel elision for avagraha is reversed and marked with a + sign: e.g., "prathamo+adhyāyaḥ"
