The present Dictionary is designed to meet the long-felt need of the English knowing reader, who is interested in the study of classical as well as modern Sanskrit.
It covers a very large field-Epics such as the Ramayaha and Mahabharata, Purahas and Upapurahas, Smrti and Niti literature, Darganas or Systems of Philosophy, such as Nyaya, Vedanta, Mimanasa, Sankhya and Yoga, Grammar, Rhetoric Poetry in all its branches, Dramatic and Narrative literature, Mathematics, Medicine, Botany, Astronomy, Music and other technical or scientific branches of learning. Thus, it embraces all words occuring in the general post-Vedic literature. It includes most of the important terms in Grammar. It gives quotations and references to the peculiar and remarkable meaning of words, especially such as occur in books prescribed for study in the Indian and foreign universities. It also renders explanation of important technical terms occuring in different branches of Sanskrit learning. To add to its usefulness, the work includes three appendices.
