I am posting the following on behalf of my teacher, Venerable Professor KL Dhammajoti.
Reading Buddhist Sanskrit Texts: An Elementary Grammatical Guide (4th revised edition)
Author: Venerable Professor K.L. Dhammajoti
4th revised edition.
The Buddha-Dharma Centre of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 2021. pp. 489++
The major revision is in the Glossary, which now provides Tibetan correspondence to those entries with ancient Chinese terms corresponding to the Sanskrit. For many of these entries, the students can now also find more explanations. Some hopefully improved explanations are added, sometimes with additional examples, in the grammatical discussion in the book. An appendix of declensions and conjugation is also provided.
As in the previous edition, the Romanized sentences are generally given in the form reflecting (emulating) the printed Sanskrit Devanāgarī texts, so that students can practise removing the sandhi where permissible. But in view of those who need help in such an exercise, we have now shown the separable Romanized forms of the Exercise sentences, where appropriate, in in the annotation of three of the lessons: five, six and seven. Students can learn further about separating the Sanskrit words that have been combined in sandhi from the Romanaized Vajracchedikā Prajñāpāramitā provided after Lesson 13. The Devanāgarī text of this Sūtra is based on Conze’s edition, checked against Müller’s Sanskrit edition.
