Additional studies - Tour
This guide follows the main menu's scheme in that it shows only the front page (the main one) in case of a set of pages linked to one another. For instance, Bhagavadgītā is composed of a front page and several subpages (the respective chapters). Well, the main menu just exhibits a link to the front page and "not" to the chapters. This was so designed to make the menu so lighter as possible. Too many submenus in the main menu and those visitors with slow connections will suffer the consequences, you know.
On the contrary, our Sitemap shows "all" links to "all" pages (look for "Vedānta" in the "Scriptures" section of the Sitemap and see it by yourself). In spite of this only difference between the main menu's scheme and that of the Sitemap, there is a complete coherence between both. Ah, a final advise: move the mouse pointer over the list of links to get additional information.
All right, let us get down to work!

- This section mostly contains additional information serving as a complement to the one displayed in other sections/subsections of the site. The only exceptions would be the documents of the first three subsections, which are not dependant on any other document. Anyway, even Aṣṭāṅgayoga and NABM may be taken as additional information, specially if you are trying to learn Sanskrit pronunciation or writing, or if you have read Pātañjalayogasūtra-s or Haṭhayogapradīpikā and are looking for more information on the topics being dealt with in those scriptures. Everybody can visit this section without any previous requirement. However, it would be good if they first visit the respective documents in the First Steps, Writing, etc subsections within the Sanskrit section. Of course, the documents of the first three subsections may be consulted without reading anything previously.
