Notes on transliteration and terms
Words in Hindi and Sanskrit have been transliterated using standard methods of show-ing pronunciation as used in Benjamin Walker,
Hindu World: An Encyclopedic Survey of Hinduism (Volume 1)
, first published in 1968 by Goerge Allen & Unwin Ltd, (New Delhi:Rupa & co, 2005) and others. That is, using diacritics. Instead of simply writing ‘dik-sha’, the spelling ‘d¯ıksh¯a’ is used, as this follows the actual pronunciation in the originallanguage more closely. Spelling in book titles, quotes and such, are, naturally, given asthey were spelled in the original.The standard transliteration system for Sanskrit is used, except for a few modificationsto aid in pronunciation. For Hindi, the mute ‘a’ at the end of a word is dropped — butonly if the ‘a’ is, indeed, mute.Terms that might be unknown for a reader unaccustomed to Hinduism, Indian culture— or other areas touched by in the paper — are explained in footnotes on introductionof term. See, for instance, note6on page7about ‘Ban¯aras’.
