Note on the Śatakatraya: The text and numbering of stanzas reflect that of the edition of D. D. Kosambi (Bombay, 1948).  A pleasing translation of this version of the text is found in Bhartrihari: Poems, translated by Barbara Stoler Miller (Columbia University Press, 1967).  I obtained this recording from Barbara Miller, who made it, so far as I know.
