Sanskrit

A Rapid Sanskrit Method

Motilal Banarsidass, Dehli, 1989

Preface

“It [sanskrita]is, like Chinese, Arabic, Greek and Latin, one of the few languages which has been a carrier of a culture over a long period of time.

Thus, the variety of writings in it, and the quantity of those writings are staggering. An incomplete list of subjects treated in Sanskrit, usually with great prolixity, is as follows:

The four Vedas

The Brahmanas and Aranyakas

The Upanisads

Grammar

Epic, puranic, literature - Including 18 major puranas, 18 minor puranas, and hundred of sthalapuranas.


Slide5 l.jpg

Works on Medicine

Logic

Astronomy & Astrology

Mathematics

Lawbooks

Architecture

Music…

On most of these subjects, there is an immense literature still extant. Indeed, a rough estimate of the works which will be listed in The New Catalogus Catalogorum yields a total of about 160,000 works… many so difficult that it would take years of study to properly understand them.

…Sanskrit does have its share of great writers: Kalidasa ranks with the greatest poets, Panini is without question the greatest pre-modern grammarian, the Mahabharata ranks with the Iliad and the Odyssey, and the Bhagavata-purana is among the finest works of devotion every written, being equaled in my opinion only by other works in Indian languages.”
