Clay Sanskrit Library,
"The Clay Sanskrit Library has been created to introduce Classical Sanskrit literature to a wide international readership." The library has Sanskrit text, written in familiar Roman letters, faces the English translation, and the convenient pocket size is both elegant and practical.

Forty-five leading scholars from ten countries are cooperating to produce fresh new translations that combine readability and accuracy. The first fifteen titles appeared in 2005, co-published by NYU Press and the JJC Foundation. Four more were published in July and another three in October 2006. They will be followed by six in December and two more in March 2007. Within the next four years the Clay Sanskrit Library will grow to about a hundred titles. The selection will focus on drama, poetry and novels, together with the famous epics.
