On the first page of the INDOLOGY web page, I have mounted a rather
amateurish system for ordering microfilm copies of Sanskrit manuscripts
from the Wellcome Insitute's library.  I'd be interested in your reactions.

Dear Dominik,

Please convey my regards to your *very* intimate anagrammatic
acquaintance Kinimod<g> for one of the most _excellent_ satirical flames
I've ever read (equally satisfying was Dr. Wetzel's response).

Haven't had a chance to visit your website yet, but I've been _dying_ to
find a source for MSS, for love or money, as I don't have any academic
connections.  Money is no problem - all my translation projects are
independent - but I just don't have the time and resources to take trips to
India, root about in libraries, etc.

For that matter, any from-the-ground-up tutorial material on how to go
about obtaining manuscripts would be greatly appreciated.

My main interest is in Gaudiya Vaishnava commentaries.

Regards,
Henry Groover

Subject: Kashmir Shaivism

In various books and articles I see all kinds of versions of this: Kashmir
Shaivism, Kashmiri Shaivism, Kashmirian Shaivism,  Shaivism of Kashmir, -
Shivaism, and in German: Kashmir Shaivismus, Kashmir Shivaismus,
Kas(c)hmirischer Shivaismus ....
Is there a standard term, both in English and German? Is any one term more
justified than others?
Thanks for your help.
