A compendium with about three thousand five hundred terms compiled in order to help anyone interested in things Indian, whether cosmology, philosophy or mythology from a broad base of philosophical systems, traditions (Shiva, Vishnu, Tantra, Jain and Buddhist). There is a definite bias towards non-dualistic thought in the interpretation of the terms because the author was a monk in the Vedanta school of Shankaracharya. Entries are in Devanagari script with a romanised transliteration, where possible the Sanskrit root word has been included with the entry to satisfy curiosity or aid further investigation. For etymologists concerned by historical setting, textual reference is often provided in which the expression appears and thus the time of its use can perhaps be deduced. Foreword by the late Professor J.Gonda of Utrecht University.
