International Sanskrit Study & Research Circle

It is of the utmost value to a nation, a human group-soul, to preserve its language and to make of it a strong and living cultural instrument. A nation, race or people which loses it language, cannot live its whole life or its real life.

– Sri Aurobindo

Sanskrit literature encompasses a rich tradition of literature defining scientific, technical, philosophical and dharma texts. Sanskrit is one of the most ancient languages and perfect among the great languages in the world. Sanskrit is being taught in many universities and academic institutions around the world.
