Numbering system. · Posted by Jagat on August 19th 2003 - 21:33 +0200
There are two numbering systems for the Saptasati, arising from the fundamental problem that there are not 700 verses, but 579. The numbering system used in the Alkhemy site file is the fanciful one that arrives at 700. Thomas B. Coburn's book "Encountering the Goddess" (SUNY Pres, 1991) has both systems side-by-side.
