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
Research Assistant,

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

 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.

Today's Insight

Lashkar-e-Taiba Wreaks Havoc in South Asia, Threatens the U.S. | Bennett Seftel, The Cipher Brief
Although LeT does not have the notoriety of ISIS and al Qaeda, it has previously attempted to strike the U.S. homeland and continues to keep America squarely in sights.

Expert Commentary

Militants and Missionaries: LeT’s Dual Role in South Asia | Stephen Tankel, Assistant Professor, School of International Service, American University
"LeT is defined by two dualities: the first is its identity as a militant group and as a missionary organization; the second concerns its military activities, namely that it is both a pan-Islamist group dedicated to waging jihad against all enemies of Islam and Pakistan’s most trusted and reliable militant ally."

Jihad in India, Kashmir and Afghanistan: A Boost to Pakistan? | Marvin Weinbaum, Director for Pakistan Studies, Middle East Institute
"At this point in time, considering the growing tensions in Kashmir, the ISI has every reason to hold close a jihadi group such as LeT. Pakistan also cannot give up on its proxies in an Afghanistan that is seen as very possibly fracturing."

Today's Column: Expert View

Donald Trump Can Learn from Teddy Roosevelt’s “America First” | Ambassador Richard Boucher, Former Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia
If our new Administration wants to keep America first in the world, they’d better come up with an integrated strategy soon, before others out-maneuver us, the way Teddy Roosevelt manipulated the powers of the 19th century. As we face a tumultuous world, perhaps we should ask: What would Teddy do?
Must Read On The Cipher Brief

Indian and Chinese Forces Square Off Amid Border Dispute | Wilson Dizard, National Security Editor, The Cipher Brief
Indian and Chinese troops skirmished along disputed border territory Tuesday, with soldiers tossing rocks at each other, causing minor injuries. The altercation represents a rare flare-up in the decades-long disagreement over territory.

15 Minutes
The U.S. State Department recently revealed that individuals working in the U.S. embassy in Havana, Cuba were sent home due to symptoms resembling a concussion, with at least one employee suffering from hearing loss. State Department officials have said this was an “acoustic attack,” using sonic devices outside the range of audible sound that were placed either inside or outside the diplomats’ residences.

This week, The Cipher Brief’s Kaitlin Lavinder spends 15 minutes with H. Keith Melton, an intelligence historian, author, and board member of the International Spy Museum, who recently co-authored Spy Sites of Washington, DC with former CIA Director of the Office of Technical Service Robert Wallace. Here, they talk about the history of espionage activities between the U.S. and Cuba, and which country is the biggest espionage threat to the United States.

The Cipher Take

Iraqi Army Prepares for Assault Against ISIS in Tal Afar
Iraqi warplanes have bombed ISIS positions in the city of Tal Afar, ISIS’ last stronghold in northern Iraq, as they prepare for a ground assault to take back the city from the terrorist group. It is not known when the offensive will begin, but Iraqi army, police and special operations forces units are heading to the area. Thousands of civilians have fled in preparation for the operation. Last month, Iraqi military commander Maj-Gen Najm al-Jabouri said that the jihadists were "worn out and demoralised" and that he did not expect a fierce battle similar to what occurred in Mosul.

The Cipher Take: 
Now that Mosul has been liberated, the Iraqi army has turned its attention to Tal Afar, which is located 35 miles east of Mosul. Iranian-backed Shia militas have already cut off the city from the West, encircling the approximately 2,000 ISIS fighters in the city. As ISIS is pushed out of its strongholds in Mosul and Raqqa and continues to lose territory in its self-declared caliphate across Syria and Iraq, the terrorist group will likely double down on its external operations, particularly in Europe and the United States, as well as its efforts to disseminate propaganda and inspire lone-wolf attacks.

Upcoming Events

Mr. Ledgett served as NSA Deputy Director from January 2014 until his retirement in April 2017, culminating a nearly 40-year career in cryptology at NSA and in the U.S. Army.
