I use different sources, be it written (dictionaries, CD-covers), audio recordings of satsangs and CDs or the internet. I handle these sources as following:

  • When translating Sanskrit words, I mainly use a Sanskrit - German and a Sanskrit - English dictionary. Recently (2018) I started using the online Dictionary for Spoken Sanskrit. This site also gives the word in Devanagari: if I have the mantra to translate also in Devanagiri it allows for more precision in the translation.
  •  If I use another source, I will make a note of it. Special are the interpretations given by ShantiMayi during satsangs, in which case the date of said satsang will be mentioned.
  • For interpretations of mantras, I either use CD-covers or a website, which will always be mentioned.
  • Audio fragments will always have a note saying what CD they are from and, if possible, a link to a website that sells the CD.
  • Some images are pictures taken by people known to me, in which case I will indicate who took said picture. The other images are from the internet. If possible, I will link to their original site. However, some images and pictures have been re-used so many times, it’s nigh impossible to trace them back to their origin.

If anyone feels I have unjustly used their material, please let me know and I will remove it from the site.
