This site is a collection of various documents which may be of interest to āstikas. Many of them come from the "digital library of india" project. A few original publications are offered here as well.

Aupāsana is the sacred fire in which we perform upāsanā -- i.e. meditation and worship. See the definitions for upāsanā and aupāsana here.
