Sanskrit language is the divine language of antiquity and the program language of the future. The influence of this language directly or indirectly spread to almost all the languages of the planet (according to experts, it is about 97%). If you own Sanskrit, you can easily learn any language of the world.
Of all the languages of the world, Sanskrit has the greatest vocabulary, while it makes it possible to pronounce a sentence with the minimum number of words.
Amazing facts of the past
Vedas written in Sanskrit – the oldest in the world. Hindus believe that they have remained unchanged in oral tradition for at least 2 million years.
Modern scientists, the time of creation of the Vedas dates back to 1500 BC. e., that is, "officially" their age is more than 3,500 years.
They have a maximum time interval between oral distribution and written fixation, which falls on the 5th century.
Sanskrit texts relate to a wide variety of topics, ranging from spiritual treatises to literary works (poetry, drama, satire, history, epic, novels), scientific works in mathematics, linguistics, logic, botany, chemistry, medicine, as well as explanatory works obscure items for us – "Raising elephants" or even “growing bent bamboo for palanquins”. The ancient library of Nalanda included the largest number of manuscripts on all topics, until it was plundered and burned by Muslim terrorists.
The poetry in Sanskrit is surprisingly diverse and includes more than 100 recorded and more than 600 oral works.
Sanskrit is the mother of most of North Indian languages. Even tendentious theorists of the pseudo-Aryan invasion, who ridiculed Hindu texts, after studying it recognized the influence of Sanskrit and accepted it as the source of all languages.
The Indo-Aryan languages developed from the Middle Indo-Aryan languages, which, in turn, evolved from the Pra-Aryan Sanskrit. Moreover, even the Dravidian languages (Telugu, Malalam, Kannada, and to some extent Tamil), which do not originate from Sanskrit, borrowed so many words from it that Sanskrit can be called their adoptive mother.
The process of forming new words in Sanskrit lasted for a long time, until the great linguist Panini, who wrote the grammar, did not establish the rules for the formation of each word, making a complete list of roots and nouns.
After Panini, some changes were made; they were streamlined by Vararuchi and Patanjali. Any violation of the rules established by them was recognized as a grammatical mistake, and therefore Sanskrit remained unchanged from the time of Patanjali (about 250 BC) until our times.
For a long time, Sanskrit was used mainly in oral tradition. Before the advent of typography in India, Sanskrit did not have a single written alphabet. It was written in local alphabets, which includes more than two dozen fonts. This is also an unusual phenomenon. The reasons for adopting Devanagari as a standard of writing are the influence of the Hindi language and the fact that many of the early Sanskrit texts were printed in Bombay, where Devanagari is the alphabet for the local Marathi language.
Sanskrit, like all the literature written on it, is divided into two major sections: the Vedic and classical. Vedic period, which began in 4000-3000 BC. e., ended around 1100
Vedic Sanskrit over time merged with the classical. However, there is still quite a big difference between them, although the phonetics are the same. Many old words were lost, many new ones appeared. Some meanings of words have changed, new phrases have arisen.
The sphere of influence of Sanskrit has spread in all directions of Southeast Asia (now Laos, Cambodia and other countries) without the use of hostilities or violent measures by India.
The attention paid to Sanskrit in India (the study of grammar, phonetics and
Sanskrit Is the scientific language of the three world religions: Hinduism, Buddhism (together with Pali) and Jainism (second after Prakrit).
It is difficult to attribute to the dead languages: Sanskrit literature continues to flourish thanks to novels, short stories, essays and epic poems that are created in this language.
In the past 100 years, even literary awards have been conferred on authors, including the distinguished Janpith in 2006.
There are works of enormous complexity, including such works, in which several events are described simultaneously using a word-play or words with a length of several lines are used.
Sanskrit is the official language of the Indian state of Uttarakhand. These days there are several Indian villages (in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa, Karnataka and Uttara Pradesh), where they still speak this language. For example, in the village of Mathur in Karnataka, more than 90% of the population knows Sanskrit.
There are even newspapers in Sanskrit! Sudharma, printed in Mysore, has been published since 1970, and now it also has an electronic version.
At the moment, there are about 30 million ancient Sanskrit texts in the world, 7 million of which are in India. This means that there are more texts in this language than Roman and Greek combined. Unfortunately, most of them have not been cataloged, and therefore requires a lot of work on the digitization, translation and systematization of existing manuscripts.
Sanskrit in our time
Sanskrit enriches science by transferring the knowledge contained in books such as the Vedas, Upanishads, Puranas, Mahabharata, Ramayana and others. For this purpose, it is studied at the Russian State University and especially at NASA, which has 60,000 palm leaves with manuscripts. NASA has declared Sanskrit "the only unambiguous spoken language of the planet," which is suitable for computers. The same idea was expressed in July 1987 by Forbes magazine: "Sanskrit is the language most suitable for computers."
NASA reported that America is creating the 6th and 7th generation of computers based on Sanskrit. The project’s end date for the 6th generation is 2025, and the 7th is 2034. After that, it is expected that a boom in the study of Sanskrit will take place all over the world.
In seventeen countries around the world there are universities for the study of Sanskrit to gain technological knowledge. In particular, in the UK, a protection system based on the Indian Shri Chakra is being studied.
There is an interesting fact: the study of Sanskrit improves mental activity and memory: students who have mastered this language begin to better understand mathematics and other exact sciences and receive increased marks for them. James School jr. in London, she introduced for her students the study of Sanskrit as a compulsory subject, after which her students began to study better. This example was followed by some schools in Ireland.
Studies have shown that the phonetics of Sanskrit has a connection with the energy points of the body, so reading or pronunciation of Sanskrit words stimulates them, increasing the energy of the whole body, whereby an increase in the level of disease resistance, relaxation of the mind and relief from stress is achieved.
In addition, Sanskrit is the only language that uses all the nerve endings in the language; when pronouncing words, the general blood supply improves and, as a result, the brain functions. This leads to better overall health, as reported by American Hindu University.
Sanskrit is the only language in the world that exists for thousands. Many of the languages that have descended from him have died, many others will come to replace them, but he himself will remain unchanged.
