Sanskrit


It was in 6th standard when i was first introduced to the divine language "sanskrit" as a compulsory language in my then curriculum.If it had not been a compulsory language, i had never opted for this as at that time sanakrit was like monster on shoulder and used to give some of very sleepless dreams before examinations. But i never had thought that one day this very divine language will change my life for ever,for good.Now it is a essential part of my daily life.

The Sanskrit alphabet is called "devanagari" and literally means "cities of the gods". Rishis discovered Sanskrit and used it to create the mantras. These mantras were made up of a combination of sound vibrations, which when recited had a specific effect on the mind and the psyche.In the times of the Rishis,the main aim was to attain the truth, and Sanskrit - the perfect tool was found to be the best medium.
Due to its specificity and purity, this seemed the best language with which to understand God's creation

Sanskrit is the common language of the Hindu Scriptures. It is the oldest language in the world. It is the language of the Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita, Mahabharata , Ramayana and the Puranas. Sanskrit literature is easily the richest literature in the history of mankind.The word Sanskrit literally means "Perfected Language" or "Language brought to formal perfection". That is the reason why NASA declared it to be "the only unambiguous language on the planet".

Sanskrit is a scientific and systematic language. Its grammar is perfect and has attracted scholars worldwide.Sanskrit is also the mother of all Indo-European languages and the big sister of Greek and Latin. It is the origin of all the Indian languages.

For being so pure and only true language,it is being used for mantar chanting and prayers.

hare krishna.
