Phonetic Version of the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra


Here is a “phonetic” transliteration with no diacriticals – rather, the long A’s are doubled - aa. There are many errors, because I have dissolved some of the Sandhi to reveal the basic words, but done so inconsistently. Corrections are welcome. Even though this approach is hopeless, a compromise.

May 2011 version, with help from John Casey, but still in progress:

Sanskrit is the classical language of Indian and the liturgical language of Hinduism,
Buddhism, and Jainism. It is also one of the 22 official languages of India. The name
Sanskrit means "refined", "consecrated" and "sanctified". It has always been regarded as
the 'high' language and used mainly for religious and scientific discourse.

Vedic Sanskrit, the pre-Classical form of the language and the liturgical langauge of the
Vedic religion, is one of the earliest attested members of the Indo-European language
family. The oldest known text in Sanskrit, the Rigveda, a collection of over a thousand
Hindu hymns, composed during the 2nd millenium BC.

Today Sanskrit is used mainly in Hindu religious rituals as a ceremonial language for
hymns and mantras. Efforts are also being made to revive Sanskrit as an everyday
spoken language in the village of Mattur near Shimoga in Karnataka. A modern form of
Sanskrit is one of the 17 official home languages in India.

Since the late 19th century, Sanskrit has been written mostly with the Devan
āgarī
alphabet. However it has also been written with a number of other alphabets, including
the Brahmi, Kharosthi, Sharda, Siddham and Bengali alphabets.

Since the late 18th century, Sanskrit has also been written with the Latin alphabet. The
most commonly used system is the International Alphabet of Sanskrit Transliteration
(IAST), which was been the standard for academic work since 1912.
