• BA in Sanskrit Language

    DY Patil University
Item 1 of 1


The Sanskrit language, whatever be its antiquity, is of a wonderful structure. Sanskrit is the oldest and the most continually used language in the world certainly since the second millennium BC. Classical Sanskrit grammar, which was established by the great grammarian, Panini, encompasses the largest literature of any language, and incorporates the sacred literature of three of the world’s major religions.


Sanskrit is still taught in some schools in India, and in a few places in the Western world. With India playing an ever more important part on the world stage, there has been a corresponding growth of interest in Sanskrit. The World Sanskrit Conference meets every four years and there are many smaller conferences focusing on different aspects of Sanskrit.


Study of these works offers a student a wider perspective to enable a better understanding of their own tradition, but also shows them which questions and insights are shared across cultures.
