These are Vedānta texts plus a method for learning the Sanskrit language via the Bhagavad Gītā. The texts are in their original Sanskrit. They are for your studies and may be freely distributed. These are text based documents in a Devanāgari font that can be copy pasted from the browser, or saved-as into a text file. View online to see what the download version would look like.

Download for Offline Viewing

Below are the links for downloading the three zipped files which contain all the documents. Once downloaded, they may be unpacked to run locally on your computer, Mac or PC. Due to the nature of running html files locally using JQuery controls, other devices, such as Android, etc., are likely either incompatible or require expert installation tricks. Certain new browsers, such as MS Edge, lock down local file access so the JQuery may not work unless online, but also the local dictionary files, chants, and ClickIt sound files may not work in such browsers. It seems MicroSoft wants their browser to trust the World-wide Web more than your own computer, which is a doubtful assumption to be kind IMO.

These contain the Advaita Vedānta Texts and Sanskrit Grammar and Dictionaries in their original Sanskrit. The lovely and complete Siddhanta Devanagari font is also included in the Core Documents in a font folder. These Vedānta texts are still a work in process as there will be more texts added and some that will need further work and corrections. These offerings are for your studies and may be freely distributed. I have applied the Creative Commons International License to these texts under Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0. This license states the terms for copying, modifying, and distributing of these texts here.

Get Font

Most devices have a system font that can display Devanāgari characters. However, some devices may not have such a font, or the font is missing some characters or are poorly formed. This is especially true for the Vedic accent characters used in some of these documents.

Because of this, the Siddhanta font is provided in the download under a "font" folder. Just find it and double-click it and it should install. This only works on devices that allow new fonts such as a PC or Mac.

If you cannot find the "font" folder, then the link to the font (Siddhanta.ttf) from the author is below. Use his siddhanta-vyakarana.ttf (which installs as "siddhanta" in Windows) to show the Rig Veda accent characters fully.

In case the above address changes in the future, you may download the free font from Upasana Yoga below.
