Impressive.
Isn't this a version of DhatupATam?

Yes I think, is there any other listing of sanskrit roots current?

#8 Sanskrit transliteration on an English Keyboard

Post by Sachi_R »

Dear all,
This is an ongoing interest area for me. My research tells me that the format used in most printed materials uses IAST.
Wikipedia states:
The International Alphabet of Sanskrit Transliteration (IAST) is a subset of the ISO 15919 standard, used for the transliteration of Sanskrit, Prakrit and Pāḷi into Roman script with diacritics. IAST is a widely used standard. It uses diacritics to differentiate between retroflex and dental consonants (e.g. making dental द=d and retroflex ड=ḍ, which is more readable but requires diacritic printing).
I propose to use IAST going forward in writing . Here is a character map:

Now, how to type a shloka in this IAST and paste it here in this post?
Let me show you.
Go to http://www.lexilogos.com/keyboard/sanskrit_latin.htm
Start typing your usual way in the box. Remember, variants of a letter appear as you type = sign after that letter. eg."sādhana pañcakaṃ" is the output as I type "sa=dhana pan===cakam="

Let me type some more:
akhaṇḍamaṇḍalākāraṃ vyāptaṃ yena carācaraṃ
tatpadaṃ darśitaṃ yena tasmai śrīgurave namaḥ


After you type the text in that box, use control-c and then paste in the post here using control-v.

Do you like it?
