Muktabodha Indological Research Institute’ mission is to preserve, protect, and disseminate endangered treasures of India’s religious and philosophical wisdom and the intangible heritage that supports it. Muktabodha’s primary projects are: I. Muktabodha Digital Library: an on-line digital library of rare Sanskrit texts & e-texts, focused on Kashmir Shaivism, Trika-Kaula, Saiva-Siddhanta, Pancaratra, Natha Yoga and other tantric works, in addition to manuscripts on Vedic Shrauta ritual. II. Swami Muktananda Vedashala: a traditional oral school of Vedic study in Maharashtra, India that preserves and documents practice of the highly endangered Hiranyakeshi branch of the Taittiriya Krishna Yajur Veda, and the Govardhani style of Ranayaniya Sama Veda recitation. III. Publication of translations and commentaries on significant texts of these knowledge systems.

This site contains a bibliography of the philosophical literature of India during its classical phase and the secondary material on this literature that is available (for the most part) in English. For purposes of definition, philosophical literature has been deemed to be that which is of philosophical interest throughout, theoretical rather than purely practical in its intended function, and polemical or at least expository in a context where defense of one view among alternatives is appropriate The site is an expanded version of the Bibliography which appeared as Volume I of Encyclopedia of Indian Philosophies. There have been three printed editions of this Bibliography: 1st edition 1970, 2nd revised edition 1983, and 3rd revised edition 1995. This electronic version is continuously corrected and updated
