Are there any Siva Purana books with english Transliteration? This is not the same as translation. This would be the Sanskrit sloka written in english. I could only find this book, but thats only the Uttarakhanda -


  • For a text like Shiva Purana, I don't think anyone would publish a book with English transliteration & translation of shlokas. ISKCON did it with SB and BG most likely to cater to Western audience but I doubt if Shiva Purana has such a following in the West. Even the book you mention uses Devanagari script for shlokas.

  • @sv. thank you for your response. Yes, I have the BG with me and I do agree with you on the western following. There are many translations of the Siva Purana, J. L Sastri's one seems to be very popular, but its all english. While I understand some sanskrit and pali, I never learned the script. I learned it via the script of my mother tongue (sinhala from Sri Lanka).

  • You can keep checking the GRETIL site for English transliteration of Shiva Purana. Right now they only have Book 1 and Book 7 transliterated. Aug 5, 2020 at 20:07
  • Thank you @sv. I have seen this. I was planning on reaching out to them asking why only the 1 and 7 done. Thanks for responding.
