Language is a means to bring individuals together. Aptly referred to as the ‘Divine Language’, Sanskrit has been perfected by the ancient sages not just as a mode of human communication but also as a medium through which one can understand oneself and one’s surroundings. All of us are gifted with an innate ability to absorb the beauty and sophistication associated with this great language. What is required is a natural enthusiasm for, and participation in, the study of Sanskrit in the good company of others.
