Tip Jar, if you find these helpful and valuable:

* Note:

This Index requires the above documents (plus a few JQuery library files) to be in same directory folder. The Siddhanta font best shows the Devanagari characters. Other Unicode fonts are adequate but Siddhanta is one of the few that displays the Vedic accent characters completely. Siddhanta can be searched, freely downloaded, and installed from the internet, including from www.UpasanaYoga.org.

If run from UpasanaYoga.org web site these requirements are automatically taken care of. The fonts will be loaded from the website instead of from your device.

Just in case I lose, for whatever reason, my website to download these, here is the link to download My Offerings (as of Sep. 2021) from Google Drive:
This is a zip file that can be downloaded and unzipped into a directory on your computer to run this starting AKA-Index.htm file off-line.
Cheers, Aruna
