A NOTE ON TRANSLITERATION
The essays assembled in this volume were written for a variety of purposes and au-diences, and they adopt a variety of schemes for transliterating Indic words. We have chosen to respect that diversity; no single system of transliteration is correct for every use. Certain terms are so important, however, that they recur often, and sometimes with different spellings. In the list that follows, we provide a partial list of such terms, hoping it will help readers make connections between one chapter and the next.
