Android and iOS mobile Application for Sanskrit Learning For Beginners
Sanskrit is called as a perfect language, an unambiguous language and hence NASA preferred it for Artificial Intelligence. But why so ? How it is different from any other language in the world? Why it is called as a most scientific language? What is so unique in sanskrit language ?
To answer all the above questions, we have to really look into the vyakarana in sanskrit. Though I don’t have enough knowledge in sanskrit, I am writing these articles after exploring a little bit about sanskrit with the help of few online courses of sanskrit ( Vyoma Linguistic Labs :Learn Sanskrit From home )
Vyakarana in Sanskrit:
In english if I say ‘Read‘ it is a just a word and you can not give any more explanation for that, is there any logic behind formation of this word ? Is there any explanation for the word ‘Read‘ or ‘Reading‘ ? Definitely we don’t have any answer for this question.
In sanskrit there is nothing which has no explanation, there is a logic behind formation of each and every word. Let me take simple example
There is a word ‘पठति‘ in sanskrit, which means ‘Read‘ but as I said above for every word there is an explanation, let us see how this word formed
Hope these simple examples help us to understand how rich the sanskrit language is. All I am trying to tell here is learn sanskrit, we have plenty of online courses, videos, mobile applications but I prefer the following pointers because these mobile apps for sanskrit are really very nice.
Being a Bharatiya, I am proud to write this article on sanskrit, Swami Vivekananda said one day “Bharat Mata would be Jagat Guru”, how true it is ! We taught to the world how to speak, we taught to the world how to write, our Vedas,upanishads has references to most of the modern scientific inventions, We knew solar system, galaxies thousands of years ago and what not ?. Every Indian is proud about what our country has given to the world.
I must say the best thing among all our contribution is sanskrit, There is lot lot to know about sanskrit, I just started learning and I am enjoying. I thought to share my understanding and importance of sanskrit in couple of articles.
How old Sanskrit is ?
Vedic sanskrit is being the oldest, dating back to as early as the early second millennium BCE. This qualifies Rigvedic Sanskrit as the oldest. Classical Sanskrit is the standard register as laid out in the grammar of Pāṇini, around the fourth century BCE.
Interesting Facts About Sanskrit Language:
Improvements in Concentration Level : learning sanskrit and speaking in sanskrit language improves our concentration level, If we take current generation, our kids has concentration of maximum 3min – 4min. But study has revealed that (an experiment conducted by Vyoma Labs Banglore ) a student learning sanskrit and speaking in sanskrit has gained concentration level upto 15min – 20min.
As Medicine : Research has proven that probability of Alzheimer disease is less if sanskrit is being used for speaking.
If English language has 25million words, sanskrit has 105million+ words, in fact lots and lots of Vedic scriptures have lost due to many reasons, so we can not give exact number.
Sanskrit is not just a plain language like any other language, it is logical and mathematics involved within it Example : Just see how the words in sanskrit are formed, it is called as vyakarana (व्याकरणम्) .
NASA looking at sanskrit for their work on artificial intelligence – (Ref : NASAKnowledge Representation in Sanskrit and Artificial Intelligence)
There is evidence that Pāṇini’s work in this area influenced modern linguists like de Saussure and Chomsky.

History of Airplane : Indian invented Airplane well before Wright Brothers
Well the history should be rewritten it is not the Wright brothers who invented airplane, airplane was invented in India thousands of years ago and it was Shivkar Bapuji Talpade who actually flown an unmanned airplane in 1895
Vaimānika Śāstra was distilled from Rigveda. Talpade stayed in Dukkar Wadi ( now named as Vijay Wadi ) Chira Bazar, Mumbai. He was a scholar in Sanskrit Literature and Vedas. Talpade flown his airplane in 1895 and his plane was named ad Marutsakhā.
Vaimānika Śāstra (वैमानिक शास्त्र) :
Maharshi Bharadwaaja attained mastery over the Vedas by studying works of earlier Aachaaryaas, he has presented his knowledge to mankind in his work named ‘Yantrasarvasva’. In the fourtieth chapter he deals with the science of aeronautics. He explained the construction and use of many kinds of aerplanes in 8 chapters, containing 100 subjects heads , comprising 500 sutras.
Bharadwaaja defines the word Vimaana as :
Vega-Saamyaat Vimaano Andajaanaam. Sootra 1
“Owing to similarity of speed with birds, it is named Vimaana.”
In ‘Yantrasarvasva‘ it was given as follows, In order to provide electric force to all parts of the vimaana and make them operate smoothly the Shakti-panjara-keela yantra is to be installed.
“Charging of all parts of vimaana with electric current the Shakti-panjara-keela is made as follows.
Steel, crownchika alloy, and iron, in the proportion of 10,8, and 9, to be powdered and filled in crucible and placed in aatapa furnace and heated to 100 degrees and charded with 10 degrees of electric current, will yield Shakti-garbha metal with whcih the yantra is to be made.
Soorya Shaktyapakarshana Yantra or Solar Heat extracting Yantra
“In order to protect from the cold of the 4 winter months the solar heat storing machine is now explained. The 27th kind of mirror capable of capturing solar heat is to be used in its making.”
It is said in Darpana prakarana: Sphatika or alum, manjula or madder root, sea-foam, sarja salt or nation, sand, mercury, garada or aconite, kishora or wild liquorice, gandhaka or sulphur brimstone, karbura or yellow orpiment, praanakshaara or ammonium chloride, in the proportion of 12, 1, 5, 1, 13, 12, 8, I0, 27, 4, 3, 7, 8, 5, 1. 5, 8, 3, 9, 2, purified, to be filled in antarmukha crucible, placing it in shuka-mukha furnace, and boded. Then pour it into antarmukha yantra or vessel and turn the churning key. When cooled in the mould a fine, light, strong, golden. coloured, solar heat collecting glass will be formed.

Imagine the world around you, the planet you are living on, your every relation, sentiments, everything you touch, you feel and everything you see around you is just a space created by some one ? Oh yeah you can call him as God, but scientists say a different story 🙂
Ofcourse not a god but what if it is an alien ? aliens programmed and created everything ? Assume that highly advanced aliens running a huge code using highly advanced super computers and we are living in such a hologram.
You can’t argue with me on this, you can’t just say this is all just imagination because I am completely against you 🙂 I argue that it may be possible. Ofcourse I am open for any discussion, but before raising your question answer yourself for my question – ” If Humans can go to space and create space station where any one can live, then why can’t this is not possible” ? . “If a scientist like Stephen Hawking speaks, small electric pulse can activate human memory cells” then if a computer program can read your brain cells it can also simulate something like life on planet !
Anything is possible you can use optical physics and play with rays of light and make you feel falling down, you can make some one feel sleepy with your illusive act, then it means you can control some one with some action.
