Encoding 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 division is with spaces between words ("ity evam" not "ityevam") except when words are joined by sandhi Devanāgarī ("atheyam" not "atha+iyam").

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

External sandhis are not undone or marked: "yathāmara" not "yathā+amarā"

  • A commentary: the Tattvavaiśāradī.
  • A base text: the Yogasūtras. These are enlclosed in quote-elements with the attributes: type="base-text" and ana="yosū".
