    Re: A Personal Library of Hindu Sanskrit Texts Translations

    namaste Satay.

    I have since mailed the HinduTexts.rar file to Amith, obtaining his email id through his PM to me.

    I thank you for your offer of hosting our Library in the free Website you referred to, but I doubt if they would accommodate document storage of the size of nearly 40 GB! Further, there might be copyright issues if we resort to store documents. Therefore, my suggestion as to the Library is that as and when you find time, you may mail the HinduTexts.rar file to all our members, in batches, starting with the senior members, since you have the email ids of everyone.

    However, I have some ideas as to how we can put that free Website to some good use, if they could give us some (MySQL) databases and php programming facilities. We have so much of useful material in HDF, interspersed with debate in most cases. We might cull out the traditional knowledge members posted here and consolidate them under convenient reference headings in that free Website. For this purpose, we might first ask the members themselves to collect the traditional knowledge in their postings (giving sources for all quotes and opinions), classify them under pre-determined headers, and post that knowledge first in a thread in HDF. After suitable scrutiny, these can be moved to the new, reference Website.

    I have some other ideas of some of us working collectively to create an interactive (but nor forum type interaction) Website that could be useful for our learning about our Sanatana Dharma at different levels: children, youth, novices, sAdhakas and pandits.

    As part of this knowledge we might also have a Question Bank and run a Personal Quiz, which is not competitive, but would serve to enhance a member's personal knowledge using scores for right answers and calculation of a Personal Knowledge Quotient. Each member would optionally take a quiz of randomly asked questions, whenever he/she feels like, answer, say some 10 questions in 10-minute sessions, and accumulate scores for right answers. The questions once answered will be remembered and won't reappear for that member. The number of questions in the Question Bank will keep on increasing as we add questions, and the quiz-taking member will have a moving target to chase and catch. We can have a team of members with good knowledge about our religion, to prepare the post the questions to the QB, with a core team that approves them.

    I shall collect my ideas and thoughts, workout something and submit it for your consideration as soon as I can. Meantime, if this idea appeals to you, you might think about finding a suitable host and service--free or paid. If it is paid (which would be better), some of us might share the cost. I shall work out something after getting your approval of the idea (perhaps in consultation with other members).

I think it comes with an ad of the hosting company that's why it's free and that's why I never used it for anything.

    Do you want me to find out more about the free account? I don't mind putting it to good use if it is possible to work out the logistics of separate account management etc. I will look into this...

    To her whose feet are washed by the ocean, who wears the Himalayas as her crown, and is adorned with the gems of rishis and kings, to Mother India, do I bow down in respect.

    This must be the largest single compilation of the references/links to the Hindu literature available anywhere on the internet and on behalf of the entire Hindu Dharma Forum community, I thank Saidevo, for making this possible.

    Re: A Personal Library of Hindu Sanskrit Texts Translations

    namaste everyone.

    I am happy about the compliments for my compilation. I thank members who have added to my reputation points. Since I have received points for this thread from four or five members already, I request any member seeing this thread for the first time not to give me any more repu. points.

    I have since uploaded the HinduTexts.rar file to esnips here:
    http://www.esnips.com/doc/6c3d3d9d-1...7ef/HinduTexts

    All you need is to download the zip file, unzip it and set up the Library using the boldfaced guidelines given in my post no.41. Setting up is easy, and once this is done you may download using the 0index.html file only those books you need and then move them to their own folders.

    Feedback from anyone regarding the setup is welcome.

    Re: A Personal Library of Hindu Sanskrit Texts Translations

    namaste everyone.

    HDF Library link

    Upon my request, our admin Satay has added a 'Library' link after the 'FAQ' link in the menu bar of the HDF homepage. This link connects to the OP of this link.

    Those who want to proceed straightaway to downloading select books and build their own Hindu personal library, may straightaway go to the last page of the thread, and follow the guidelines given in post no.55 there.

    Since, time and again, (new) members enquire about texts and translations, this measure would facilitate everyone to first check the comprehensive library links for their requirement before searching outside.

    Re: A Personal Library of Hindu Sanskrit Texts Translations

    Unfortunately most of these texts are sanskrit only. I'm not sure I'm majority but I still can't read it.

    Saidevo, can you (and others) recommend me good translations with commentaries of the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad?

    Namaste,

    These are wonderful. A word of caution: I found an error on two of the cards.
