Learn Sanskrit in India

Sanskrit can be stated as the mother of all languages. 

It is one of the 23 official languages of India, which belongs to the group of Indic language family (Indo-European and its descendants).

Sanskrit is a liturgical language for Hinduism, Jainism and Buddhism. It is an ancient language in Hinduism, where it has been used as a language of communication and written scriptures.

Besides the Hindus, it is widely used by the Buddhism sects, Jainism and Sikhism. The Sanskrit word has been derived from the terms Sam (samyak meaning entirely) and krit (meaning done). It indicates ‘entirely done’ in terms of language and communication in both written and spoken perspectives.

Origin of the Language Sanskrit

The Sanskrit language has been considered as the Deva-Vani language, which translates to God's Language. It is believed to be generated by the ancient God, Brahma, who passed the language to the rishis or sages. These rishis lived in the celestial abodes, who then started communicating using this language and spreading on earth.

The origin of Sanskrit can be traced back to as early as the 2nd millennium BCE, the time when the collection of the sacred hymns, the Rig Veda is said to be written (completed or continued after centuries of via verbal knowledge). The purest form of the Sanskrit language has been reflected in the Rig Veda (Vedic period 1500 to 500 BCE).

Sanskrit has been classified into two different periods based on the literary association. These are Vedic Sanskrit and Classical Sanskrit.

Vedic Sanskrit

Vedic Sanskrit is found in the Vedic texts that are Vedas. In addition, it is also found in other ancient sacred texts of the Hindus such as Upanishads, and Puranas. Since Puranas and Upanishads are the oldest sacred texts of the Hindus, the purest or most original form of Sanskrit can be found in them.

The Vedas can be traced back to 1000 to 500 BCE. The early Sanskrit that has been used in Vedas consist of 52 letters in total, 16 vowels and 36 consonants to be precise. Out of these, the 52 letters have never been altered and are thus constant since the very beginning of the Sanskrit language. It thus helped in the formation of the work in a perfect manner.

The Sanskrit language in ancient times represented rich grammar, syntax, phonology and vocabulary. Sanskrit literature has been used in the writing of novels, sciences, dramas, religious texts and philosophy.

Classical Sanskrit

Classical Sanskrit can be traced back to the end of the Vedic period when Upanishads became the last sacred texts to be written. After this, Panini along with a linguistic researcher managed to introduce a refined version of the Sanskrit language. This can be said to happen in the 4th century BCE, based on Panini’s timeline. At that time, he introduced his work, which was termed as ‘Ashtadhyayi’.

The meaning of Ashtadhyayi is ‘eight chapters’ which was the only text formed for Sanskrit grammar. The book contains 3959 arranged rules.
