I would like to begin reading the Pancharatra Agamas in English. Can anybody provide me the relevant links or PDFs for them?

    Only a small number of them have ever been translated into English. – Keshav Srinivasan Nov 3 '17 at 18:59
  • I myself want to read them in detail as well. Are any of them available even if in Sanskrit? If so can someone share the resource where they can be obtained? – Dr. Vineet Aggarwal Jan 8 '18 at 8:19
  • @SuryaKantaBoseChowdhury Why had you deleted the answer? I've revised the answer and undeleted it. Tell/reply if you find any issue. – Pandya Oct 13 '18 at 6:42
