Dear colleagues,

A friend has asked me whether there is a standard transliteration scheme for rendering Sanskrit into modern Chinese.  My friend does not need a properly scientific system--she is a yoga teacher working in China who is interested in transcribing some bhajans for her students' use.  Any suggestions would be much appreciated: please contact me off-list,
