The glossary was growing too large, so I had to divide it into sections. For some reason, there are lots of S words.

Unless otherwise noted, all these definitions are from the Monier-Williams Sanskrit-English Dictionary, hosted online (superbly) by the UNIVERSITÄT ZU KÖLN

Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries


Thank you, Sanskritist of the University of Cologne!

from their info page:

This web page provides access to some of the Sanskrit lexicons prepared by the Institute of Indology and Tamil Studies, Cologne University. A 1997 review of the Cologne Digital Sanskrit Lexicon project (CDSL) may be of interest.
The data is made available to scholars and students in two forms. The first form is that of
scanned images of the works, which provides a convenient substitute to the physical books. The second form is a digitization of the scanned images, which permits computer-aided analyses and displays of the work.
