The Bhaktivedanta Archives is pleased to offer two new releases:

1)  The VedaBase™ 2017.1a update.

2)  Original unedited audio for the year 1969.

The 2017 VedaBase™ Update Includes:

a)  New Unicode w/Reference Icon!
Authored by Indupati Dāsa

Unicode is a modern typographic standard for processing text in multiple languages. This standard accommodates all the diacritic marks needed for rendering Sanskrit and Bengali in roman transliteration, etc.

The new Unicode icon converts selected diacritic text in the VedaBase to this universal standard which can be applied on the web, emails, Facebook, etc.

             Mac:  Preinstalled.  

             Windows:  Refer to UnicodeREADME.
