Sanskrit Documents
The following documents contain vedic mantras such as rudhram, manthra pushpam, sanDHyA vandhanam,  and stotras such as lalita sahasra namam. The Rudram (includes purusha suktham, etc) / Manthra Pushpam files have the text formatted differently from the usual Sanskrit texts. I have tried to be more phonetic to help the reader follow it more easily when others chant it. Please let me know if there are errors in these.

Rudram, Purusha suktham, Narayana suktam, Durga suktham, Mantra pushpam, Santhi manthras, etc.
