“If I was asked what is the greatest treasure which India possesses and what is her finest heritage, I would answer unhesitatingly – it is the Sanskrit language and literature and all that it contains.”

                                                                                                             -          Jawaharlal Nehru

Sanskrit is one of the oldest languages of the world. The deeper one goes into it the more one is amazed by its beauty and perfection. Whichever aspect one explores, there seems to be no limit to its treasures and wonders. Its very name means “refined” or “sculpted to perfection”. It is through this language that India has been expressing herself abundantly and incessantly for centuries, and its future rests much on this most dynamic language. But in the recent past, we have been cut off from this voluminous body of the highest wisdom, knowledge and genius. This trend is only now beginning to change, and a resurgence of Sanskrit in all fields of life would also mean a revival of the true spirit of India and its soul-force. It is through Sanskrit that we will be able to connect ourselves with the puissance and the creative thrust which propelled our forefathers to create one of the greatest civilisations in the past.

The Wonder that is Sanskrit contains two CDs: Devabhasha and Ashtavadhanam. They present the wonders of Sanskrit to even those who have had no previous contact with the language. Presented in an easy and fluid manner, here are interesting aspects of the Sanskrit language and highlights of the great creative genius of the Indian culture.


In Devabhasha – the Language of the Gods, one sees Sanskrit in its manifold aspects:

-          the perfection of its grammar, the scientific and logical arrangement of its alphabet

-          interesting and astounding creations, the agility and flexibility of the language, and the extraordinary capacity of the human mind in creating unparalleled literary feats which leave us with a sense of sheer wonder

-          the varied fields in which its literature has made a contribution: poetry, mathematics, science, astronomy, astrology, logic, law, religion, politics, drama, history, geography, medicine, yoga etc.

-          the opulence, exuberance, subtlety, perfection and exquisite beauty of its poetry

-          how Sanskrit is a source of upliftment and enlightenment, a sacred medium for expressing the highest spiritual truths and experiences

-          how the Soul of India expressed itself through Sanskrit for centuries and more importantly the role that it will play in the future of India and the world

 

In Ashtavadhanam – the Eight-fold Concentration, one participates in an unbelievable art form, so rare that few have seen it. Avadhana has been formulated as a scholarly play or mental feat where both creative and retentive faculties of mind are brought into play. One witnesses here:

-          heightened power of concentration and the extraordinary potential of the human mind

-          spontaneous creativity, the power of imagination, poetic ability and quick thinking of the Avadhani

-          amazing flexibility of the Sanskrit language, and the value and beauty of Indian culture

 

The Wonder that is Sanskrit is enriched with audio renditions of Sanskrit verses, background music, printable text, background visuals, selective video footage and other miscellaneous interactive facilities which are easy to access.
