Satvata-samhita [sanskrit]

78,524 words

The Sanskrit text of the Satvata-samhita, one of the earliest available work from the Pancaratra tradition possibly dating as early as the 5th century A.D. Another text, the Ishvara-samhita, is supposed to be a shorter (simpler) version of this Satvatasamhita. This edition includes the nineteenth-century commentary (bhashya) by Alashinga-bhatta . Alternative titles: Sātvatasaṃhitā (सात्वतसंहिता, Satvatasamhita), Sātvata-saṃhitā (सात्वत-संहिता, Satvata-samhita), Sāttvatasaṃhitā (सात्त्वतसंहिता), Sāttvata-saṃhitā (सात्त्वत-संहिता), Alaśiṅgabhaṭṭaviracitabhāṣyopetā (अलशिङ्गभट्टविरचितभाष्योपेता) or Alaśiṅgabhaṭṭa (अलशिङ्गभट्ट, Alashingabhatta, Alasingabhatta, Alasinga)
