RESOURCE> Siddham online database of South Asian inscriptions

by Lewis Doney
Dear colleagues,

A new online database of South Asian inscriptions, "Siddham" (http://siddham.uk/), was launched by "Beyond Boundaries: Religion, Region, Language and the State" project. Our team expects the database will continue to expand its corpus, include translations, and incorporate new languages starting with Burmese Pyu and Old Tibetan. We welcome any feedback on the usability of the platform or other suggestions through our online feedback form (http://siddham.uk/contact). 

Please know that the structural metadata, the XML-tagged transliterations (following EpiDoc TEI standards), and the supporting photographic data are being archived within the Siddham community of Zenodo (https://zenodo.org/communities/siddham/?page=1&size=20). This will enable open access as well as protect the database in case of any unforeseen eventuality.

The "Siddham" database is a resource for the study of inscriptions from South and Central Asia. It is the key output of "Beyond Boundaries," a major multidisciplinary research project which aims to re-vision the history of Asia in one of its most significant periods. The project focuses on the period of the Guptas (circa 320 to 550), which had an enduring impact on India and across Central and Southeast Asia in a host of cultural, religious and socio-political spheres. 

The project is based at the British Museum, British Library and the School of Oriental and African Studies, and funded by an ERC-Synergy grant for 2014–2020.

With best wishes,
Lewis Doney

Film and Psychoanalysis Series:


This coming-of-age story portrays the excruciating struggle of an emotionally abused boy named Chiron growing up with his crack-addicted mother, and without a father, in the projects outside Miami in the 1980’s. What saves Chiron may be his childhood connection to the local drug dealer, Juan, who is internalized as a paternal figure and a loving attachment.

How do you define “growing up”?  Does it mean you achieve certain cultural 
 benchmarks—a steady income, paying
 taxes, marriage, and children?  Or does
 it mean leaving behind the expectations
 of others and growing into the person
 you were meant to be?  If you find 
 yourself in a career, place, relationship,
 or crisis you never foresaw and that 
seems at odds with your beliefs about
 who you are, it means your soul is 
calling on you to reexamine your path.
With Living an Examined Life, James 
Hollis offers an essential guidebook for anyone at a crossroads in life.  Here, this acclaimed author guides you through 21 
for self-inquiry and growth—such as 
how to exorcise the ghosts of 
your past, when 
to choose meaning over happiness,
to construct a mature spirituality, and
 how to seize permission to be who 
you really are.  With his trademark
 eloquence and insight, Dr. Hollis
 offers a potent resource you’ll return 
to time and again to energize and inspire
 you on your journey to create a life of personal authority, integrity, and

Healing Circles at
The Jung Center

As the volume increases in our local and national conversation, comprehension
 and true dialogue seem in danger of vanishing entirely.  Now more than ever
 we need to practice the necessary – and difficult – art of listening.  Layers of thought, emotion, memory and image are always present in our encounters with others.  
will explore how to attend to these layers 
and how to make possible more direct and meaningful connections.  The intention is to enhance our capacity to listen deeply. 
 We will have several topics and questions
 to choose from and will use a Healing 
Circle (Peer Spirit) process which will be explained at the beginning of each

Healing Circles are held from 6 - 7:30pm, on every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month, at The Jung Center.

Click here for more information, or email Becky Dodds if you are interested 
in attending.
