Download for Offline Viewing
Below are the links for downloading 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.
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.
Select this All-In-One ZIP and download it into a directory folder just for this application. For updating, download in the same folder you used before. Unpack (unzip) it into this location, replacing any previous application files. Once unpacked, select either AKA-Index.htm or _Start.htm and run in (drag into) your favorite browser. Bookmark it in your browser to quickly restart later.
Also, from time to time, some Browsers display these large .html files faster than others. Currently (2022) Firefox is the fastest, while Chrome was previously the fastest; but even Edge is starting to overtake Chrome - who'd have thunk!
(1.9GB download ! - As of Feb 2024, updated from Jan 2024).

(607MB download - As of May 2023, Updated from Sep 2020)

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.
In case the above address changes in the future, you may download the free font from Upasana Yoga below.
Get Devanāgari Typing System
There are many systems to help type Devanāgari font on a computer. The two tools I use are a keyboarding platform by Keyman and a keyboard mapper (from transliteration to Devanāgari) by Heidelberg. The links are here. They both work together and are currently free and open source.
