Thanks a lot for this book.
wonderful work. great service.
pradhane krtam karyam saphalam bhavati.
Thank you for making this available.
However, there is no English translation which makes it difficult to comprehend a lot of its beauty, for a partially Sanskrit-aware person like me. Could you please provide link to an English translation? Will be of much help!
As far as I know there are very few English translations of Subhashitas. They are Satakas of Bhartrihari, Nitisara of Kamandaka & Subhashita Ratna Kosa. Major subhashita collections like Subhashita Ratna Bhandagara and Subhashitavali are not yet completely translated into English.
Ludwik Sternbach has translated “Maha Subhashita Sangraha” into English in 8 volumes. This has Sanskrit verses along with English translation which would be ideal for you. But, this is not available in open digital collections like archive.org, Digital Library of India, etc. You will have to access them from a library or purchase them. Details of this publication can be had from the following link – http://www.exoticindiaart.com/book/details/maha-subhasita-samgrahathe-most-comprehensive-collection-of-sanskrit-quotations-ever-in-eight-volumes-rare-book-NAB946/
Thank you so much for this effort, i wish the index was in english as well

I wonder it is only me or there are many. I downloaded a few ebooks and none of them seem to be readable. I have not downloaded the PDFs but judging by their sizes I guess they are actually scanned copies. I am talking about the txt or epub version. As an example of what I see in the preface of UpanishadVakyaKoshaSktEng.epub is
A few examples will demonstrate this.

copied from part0000.html of the epub. Obviously the uploaded file is exported from the scanned PDF and therefore this unusability.
Any idea other than d/ling the PDFs?
Praval, As you guessed, almost all books posted at this site are scanned image pdf files. If you are looking for encoded text of Sanskrit works, you may try at GRETIL, muktabodha library or similar sites.
this is a very good site

Jayaram, Maha Subhashita Sangraha volumes 1 to 8, with English translation by Ludwik Sternbach are available at https://archive.org/details/MahaasubhaasitasamgrahaVol1-8
When will the 9th volume of Maha Subhashita Sangraha be published? I have read that it was decided there would be at least 20 volumes of Maha Subhashita Sangraha, but only 8 volumes have been published by now.
Nitish, The catalogue of the publishers list only 8 volumes. You may write to them regarding remaining volumes.
