Vedānta Manuscripts from the BORI Descriptive Catalog
In connection with the funding Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) “Age of Vedanta” project, headed by Prof. Ajay Rao and Prof. Lawrence McCrea, and with kind permission of the Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institute in Pune, India (BORI), PANDiT has been digitizing and importing the contents of BORI’s three descriptive catalogues of Vedānta manuscripts (Descriptive Catalogue of the Government Collection of Manuscripts, Vedānta, Vol IX, Part I-III). Since November of 2017, the Vedānta BORI Project has meticulously curated and analyzed data related to almost a thousand Vedānta manuscripts. The data drawn from these volumes–––consisting of hundreds of authors, teachers, scribes, and works, and thousands of lines of Sanskrit extracts–––are an invaluable resource for students and scholars of Sanskrit scholastic and religious histories.
