Sri Aurobindo and the Mother both refer to Sanskrit as the language that represents the soul of India. One of the characteristic features of India’s soul as revealed in the Vedas is her deep quest for fundamental truths. The Sanskrit language literally meaning ‘perfectly done’ seems to capture this truth-quality and manifests it at every level of its expression. This presentation will seek to present Sanskrit as a yoga in itself and talk of its role for the future of humanity.
