I would like to use the proper Sanskrit with diacritics for the two terms below, but I don't read Sanskrit. Any help much appreciated. Further, if anyone knows of resources for Tibetan-Sanskrit, that would be much appreciated. I have Tibskrit which is great for names of Indian masters w/diacritics, I have Illumnator dictionary also, but it is limited. Is there another resource I might find helpful? Thank you.

File comment: This is a name for a kind of spirit. It may read "revati" but I want to be sure about the diacritics.

The second reads Revatīgraha. According to Monier-Williams, it's the name of a demon presiding over diseases in Buddhist sources.

For Tibetan-Sanskrit, I don't think there's one single good source for everything. There's Mahāvyutpatti, which is available online at http://texa.human.is.tohoku.ac.jp/aiba/ ... mvyut/open. Otherwise, there are Tibetan-Sanskrit indexes for specific texts, etc.

Thank you for clarifying and for the Monier-Williams tip.

I run Windows 7 and Word 2010, do I need extra software to be able to type diacritics. I downloaded diaunic (or something like that) one a previous computer, but it started crashing soon after; then it happened with a borrowed computer too, so I am hesitant to install that again. There are so many to chose from, it's hard to know what's good.

Thanks again.

You are right, it is 5 am where I am and I was on autopilot.

Revati, Remati are synonyms. Revati/Remati is a title of Palden Lhamo/Shri Devi. She is responsible for illnesses also.

Hi,

I have made a short instruction piece on inputting diacritics in Word (2007/2010), available here.
