Internet resources for Indian Philosophy

What are good internet resources for research in Indian philosophy? Here are a few that come to my mind.

The GRETIL project of electronic Sanskrit texts: http://gretil.sub.uni-goettingen.de/#Intro

The Monier Williams Dictionary online: http://www.sanskrit-lexicon.uni-koeln.de/monier/

The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy, whose Indian Philosophy section is edited by our own Shyam Ranganathan: http://www.iep.utm.edu/category/traditions/indian/

The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, whose Indian and Tibetan section is slowly being built up, edited by Jan Westerhoff, Jay Garfield, and Jonardon Ganeri: http://plato.stanford.edu/search/searcher.py?query=indian

Karl Potter’s bibliography–updated regularly–to the Encyclopedia of Indian Philosophies: http://faculty.washington.edu/kpotter/

Any others?

    —Birgit Kellner’s et al. Digital Corpus of Sanskrit texts, with similar purposes: http://kjc-fs-cluster.kjc.uni-heidelberg.de/dcs/
    —TITUS: an advanced Gretil, especially useful for the ancient period of Indian philosophy: http://titus.uni-frankfurt.de/indexe.htm

    I am leaving out sites I do not use and about which I cannot give any feedback, but I would be glad to read your views about these and other sites.

  2. Patrick, thanks for these resources. I just found your law blog via your link above and it looks like a marvelous resource in its own right. Your post on Buddhist violence is excellent, exactly the kind of thing that non-specialists should see.
