There are a few books
1. RS vadhyar - Nityanikam - in sanskrit
2. Sringeri - Siva Puja Vidhi?(I forget the name it is
a slim book the back cover has a picture of the
Acharya) in sanskrit (lipi-devanagari)
3. Chowkamba - Nitya puja Vidhi - has a more detailed
set of rules in sanskrit with explanations in hindi
All three have pata bedhas, and minor/major
differences, including dhyanam, order of sequences
