Errata pages for Prof. Patrick Olivelle's translations of Ancient Indian texts
College of Liberal Arts, University of Texas at Austin, TX, US
"Dear All: I discover mistakes and blunders as soon as I open a new book for the first time; a phenomenon, I trust, you are all familiar with. There are many in the several translations I have published over the years; especially in the widely-used translation of the Upanisads published in the Oxford World's Classics Series. I have now put all the needed correction for the Upanisads and for other books on my web site. You can access them at the following URL [see below]. It was difficult to get the diacritics to work on both the PC and MAC platforms; so we have made images for the diacritics; pardon the roughness observed sometimes Thanks. Patrick Olivelle, University of Texas."
