Sanskrit & Indology

Arise, awake, and stop not till the goal is reached !

Welcome to SAMSKRUTAM Studies

SAMSKRUTAM Studies - the online educational portal on Sanskrit language, literature, grammar tutorial, stories, puzzles, digital text library, online test, and other resources; which anyone can refer to study "Sanskrit-and-Indic" subject.

Sanskrit is the core of our Bhaaratiya (Indian) culture and knowledge. It has played the major role in everything we have today as our knowledge, culture, and values. All our major works like Vedas, Ramayana, Mahabharata, Shrimad Bhagvad Gita, etc., are composed and written in Sanskrit. It is doubtless and well accepted that all these teachings are unparalleled with any other teaching in the world and will remain so.

Sanskrit language has been with us for over 10,000 years. It has been our spoken language for thousands of years. This itself tells us how important is Sanskrit to our values and how important it is for us to keep Sanskrit as one of our main-stream language. Without the knowledge of Sanskrit, as a language, we will not be able to truly appreciate and understand the literature we have.

Let us bring Sanskrit back to our daily life.
It is possible only when we start using Sanskrit the way we use any other language.

"Our vision is - bringing Sanskrit back to our daily life, by facilitating a collaborative platform on 'Sanskrit & Indology' studies, where all can come together to learn as well as share their knowledge on the subject."
 Here is a depiction of some of the useful features, that we have on SAMSKRUTAM platform.

Our aim is to give a good starting point for learning and knowing Sanskrit.

We have different sections on literature, grammar, book references, stories, online dictionary, online test and crossword puzzles. This will give a good start in learning and using Sanskrit and much more.

At the same time we are also trying to bring together existing important resources on Sanskrit. In India and abroad many good initiatives for promoting Sanskrit are going on by different organisations and institutes. But, the challenge is that most of them operate independently (which has its merits). However, for anyone interested in Sanskrit sometimes it becomes an impossible task to identify such initiatives and resources.

In this web site in the directories section we have maintained well categorised details of different organisations, schools, and universities promoting Sanskrit. A list of different Sanskrit authoring tools, web sites and book publishers is also available. This will be a good reference point for different Sanskrit initiatives.

The online collaborative features - compendia, and discussion forum - in the website are envisaged to be the platform where all can come together, study Sanskrit & Indology subjects, as well as share their knowledge in building the platform.
