Getting & Installing Sanskrit fonts

OLD Sanskrit fonts

You are strongly advised to install the new Sanskrit and transliteration fonts.

If, however, you really do want to use the old fonts to see the old Sanskrit characters in the old pages on this site, then you will need to install those fonts: Sanskrit98 and Translit98. (Also remember that if you want to print anything out, you can use the pdf files provided).

Acknowledgment

These two fonts are provided free of charge to the World Community by Swami Omkarananda and the kind people at the Omkarananda Ashram in Uttaranchal, India, within sight of the Himalayas and the Ganges.
