SYSTEMS OF VEDIC KNOWLEDGE

Sanskrit, the Language of the Gods

The Sanskrit language is a living being. It is Saraswati or Vak, the embodied Goddess of wisdom. The very language itself teaches you, particularly the Vedic language in which sound and meaning closely correspond and the words reflect  the cosmic creative force. This is why Nirukta or etymology is a limb of the Vedas. It was not just a  grammatical study but a means of understanding how the universe is created. Sanskrit is a language of such beauty and brilliance that it captivates the mind and, like a muse, inspires us to deeper insight.

Sanskrit is the vehicle for what Hinduism really is. To discover the essence of Hinduism on  should learn Sanskrit and contact its power, beauty and depth. Most of the prejudices against Hinduism disappear when one learns the language behind it and the actual  meaning of its terms and principles which are so easily distorted in their English renderings. Language is the basis of culture. The language of a country carries its entire cultural  legacy. Through Sanskrit one ca n come into contact with the wisdom of India and its many sages  who transcended our   ordinary human awareness and contacted realms far beyond both body and mind.
