Saṃskṛtam (संस्कृतम्) [sanskrit or saṃskṛtā vāk (संस्कृता वाक्) in short] is the ancient sacred language of bharatavarsha. Sanskrit is the Mother of all languages, with 97% of world languages directly or indirectly influenced by this language. It is the language of Hinduism, the Vedas and the classical literary language of India. The Vedas are among the oldest texts in the world, and are believed to have been orally preserved unchanged for more than 2 millennia at least, despite not having been written down for more than a thousand years.
Sanskrit means “refined”, “consecrated” and “sanctified”. Sanskrit is a scientific and systematic language, and its perfect grammar has attracted scholars worldwide. The extraordinary thing about Sanskrit is that it offers direct accessibility to anyone to that elevated plane where the two — mathematics and music, brain and heart, analytical and intuitive, scientific and spiritual — become one. It has always been regarded as the ‘high’ language and used mainly for religious and scientific discourse.
