SPOKEN SANSKRIT CLASSES IN ALL TTD RUN VEDIC INSTITUTIONS FOR EVERY SIX MONTHS
Tirumala, 10 Aug 2011(P.R.O): To rejuvinate our Culture, rebuild our Nation and revolutionize the World, revival of Sanskrit is the need of hour, strongly opinioned, Sri LV Subramanyam, the TTD Executive Officer.
Addressing the valedictory function of the 10-day Spoken Sanskrit workshop organised by Sanskrita Bharati in TTD-run Dharmagiri Vedapathasala at Tirumala on Wednesday he said the entire vedic studies are scripted in this divine, classical language of Hinduism, which is often considered to be the oldest and the most systematic language in the world. He complimented Chilkur Balaji Temple’s Dr.MV Sounder Rajan and also the organiser and President of Sanskrita Bharati Purvandhra Wing Sri Dorbala Prabhakara Sharma for their initiative in conducting ten-day workshop in spoken sanskrit. The EO also said, TTD will henceforth organise such workshops for every six months to inculcate the habit of spoken sanskrit among the Vedic students.
He appreciated the students who performed stage acts in Sanskrit on various social subjects like Farming, Law and Order, Jewelry-vegetable-cloth business etc. He called upon the students to learn the language with dedication to bring back past glory to the “Mother of Languages”. He said, Sanskrit is built on a basis of Vedic and the Prakrits, but has a much more complex grammar. It has an immense vocabulary and a very adaptable grammar , so that words can be grouped together to express any nuance of an idea. “One can easily learn English but should totally involve oneself to learn Sanskrit. The long philosophical and grammatical tradition that has continued to exist with undiminished vigor until the present century is the beauty of the divine language. To continue its legacy to future generations every child studying in TTD run vedic institutions should master in spoken language which will be helpful not only for them but also for the future of the country”, he maintained.
The meeting was also attended by Higher Vedic Studies project officer, Sri Sriramamurthy, Vedapathasala Principal Sri Avadhani, renowned sanskrit scholars Sri Tirumalacharya, Sri Kripalu, Sri Narasimhcharya, Sri Subramanya Sharma, staff and students.
