Several sources have been consulted to compose this dictionary. They are :--
(1) The Aangiras Dictionary of the Hindu Religion and Culture. Sacred Books, 1999. [Although this book is written scientifically, still wherever the ancient dates are given, they create doubts in one's mind, as they do not match our religious Time Division of Yug etc.]
