I am pleased to announce a new service that is now available through the
SARIT is a freely-available online facility that enables you to search
through an online library of Sanskrit texts for keywords,
word-collocations, and other linguistic strings. The system is based on
the well-known ARTFL software, and is exceptionally powerful. It can
handle many forms of query and output, including KWIC indexes. Your
imagination is the limit.
The texts are presented on screen using standard scholarly roman
transliteration (Unicode), and searches can be constructed in
transliteration or in a plain ASCII equivalent.
As of today the SARIT library includes the full texts of the
Manavadharmasastra and the Arthasastra. We expect the library to expand
in the future as funding, time, and expertise allow.
SARIT is available here:
The SARIT service has been discussed and planned by myself and Richard
Mahoney, and implemented by Richard. Financial support for part of the
work has been received from the British Association for South Asian
Studies (www.basas.org.uk), to whom we are most grateful.
