ledmac for Typesetting Sanskrit

I'm working on a translation of Mukula Bhaṭṭa's Abhidhāvṛttimātṛkā and have been using the indexing option in XeTeX to generate an index of important philosophical terms and citations of other texts.

My next step, once I've finished the draft, is to figure out how to use ledmac to typeset it in facing pages. Originally, I was planning to just use the "new page" command, but that seems sloppy and tedious.
