Treasure of Stotras in English

I have hit a jackpot, of course it isn’t filled with money, but with slokas and stotras for all Gods and Goddesses in our Hindu religion. Yesterday, I posted about the Stotras in Sanskrit. While browsing the web in the night, I found another treasure for all slokas and stotras and many more in English.

We all have heard and used Wikipedia right? Can you guess what a free encyclopedia would be called for Hindus? It is called Hindupedia.  To quote from their web site about what it is:

Hindupedia, the Hindu Encyclopedia, is devoted to educating the public about all aspects of Hinduism ranging from history and philosophy to current events that impact Hindus. We will strive to hold ourselves to the highest level of integrity and provide a factual and neutral perspective on all topics. On contentious issues, we will strive to present the information from all sides and provide the reader with a holistic view of the issue.

We are the only online Hindu encyclopedia that provides the public with a Hindu perspective on our religion and way of life.

You can browse through the main page and find things you want. However, for most visitors who visit my blog, there is a Stotra page which has lyrics and also meanings as well. Here is a screen shot of part of Vishnu Sahasranama and its meaning in Hindupedia.

So, here are all the links again for Hindupedia.

    This is a very good site, indeed!! But on quite a few of the shlokas I found the wordings to be different from the originals. Since it is a Wiki-Site, perhaps all of us (well, some of us) could contribute to correct these errors, as well add more stothras and articles.

    But the collection is awesome, and that’s very important to put all available info / knowledge -treasures about Hinduism collectively, so that we all can benefit from it, more so we leave it behind for the coming generations. Because of the fast pace of change in our social life-style, many traditional gems are getting lost. I remember lots of Stothras, Padas, even home remedies & receipes my mother & grand mothers used, but we had few means of documenting in those days. I am sure this must be the experience of most of us. Before we lose whatever little we are left with, it sure is a great idea to put it in a collective treasure box such as Hindupedia, thanks to modern technology.

    Thanks to you for sharing the info…

    They have a very good collection. Many times readers have asked for lyrics in English and also the meaning. All of them have meanings in the web site. So, it is good for people who are trying to learn the same.

    I have found a few more links which are truly amazing, will be sharing them as well.

    Thanks, Jagadeesh for your comments.
