Samskrit university has failed in its objective: Governor

Governor H R Bhardwaj on Sunday expressed disappointment over the way Karnataka Samskrit University is functioning and stressed the need for the State government’s intervention to boost the growth of Sanskrit in Karnataka.  

Karnataka Samskrit University which is supposed to revive the ancient language is unfortunately not doing that, he said at the inauguration of the eight-day National
Conference on Vedic Literature here.

Bhardwaj said: "The University was set up with the intention to nurture the language. However, the University has failed in fulfilling its very objective which is to save the language and spread its knowledge among the masses."

The Governor also spoke on the ‘negligent’ attitude of the government and organisations towards the Sanskrit language. "Neither the State government nor organisations are coming forward to develop this language.

“They should pay attention to this and take the required steps," he observed.
Stressing the importance of Vedic literature, Bhardwaj said Vedic maths, Vedic astronomy and Vedic medicine are three quintessential studies from which we can benefit greatly to meet the various needs of the present generation.

India has so much to offer to the world in terms of Vedic science.

The Vedic Literature conference being held at Iskcon premises is jointly organised by Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan and Iskcon.

The week-long conference is being conducted to encourage younger generation to make use of the ancient wisdom present in the Vedic texts.

Eminent scholars across India will be taking part in the sessions that include Veda chanting, demonstration of Vedas, rendition of vedic texts with meaning, among others. The conference will also feature open house discussions, film shows on Vedas, exhibition of manuscripts, books and CDs on Vedic literature.
