Research and Contribute

Śāstravid is a web-based electronic research tool for the study of Indian philosophy. Its unique structure represents both the explicit relationships among texts—where one is a commentary on, or a translation of, another—and their conceptual connections. A researcher can view each passage in each Śāstravid text together with any combination of related commentaries and translations, and can move directly from there to passages in other Sastravid texts that make related points. Researchers can also search and browse all the concepts and texts published in the system. Texts appear in numerous languages, in the researcher's choice of script for Sanskrit and Tibetan, and are illuminated by a continuously expanding set of scholarly notes. If you register, you will be able to choose your preferred script, add your own notes, and contribute your own texts. Learn more about how Śāstravid works.
