Shiva Samhita Further ReadingHere is some additional material about the Shiva Samhita: the creation of the critical edition, notes on meter, and a bibliography. It's a bit rough and will be updated from time to time.
The Critical EditionDr. Mallinson's notes on creating the critical edition are forthcoming.
