Description
Introduction

This hymn is addressed to Vagdevi thatseeking her blessings in all endeavours. Further, the ideas conveyed in this mantra are very apt to be deliberated upon at the very outset. The hymn states – Devim vacam – the divine speech. In contrast to defining speech or language as mere tool for communication this mantra clearly indicated the fact Speech is divine, implying that it leads to divinity.

This hymn also states dhenur vak – Speech is cow. Cow in Hindu tradition, symbolizes Holiness, Gentleness and above all motherly affection. According to this mantra then, Speech should have all these attributes. Further kvasvidasyah paramam jagama – who has crossed the greater (reaches of speech)? Asks the mantra, highlighting the depth and subtlety of speech. This hymn also states – vedanam mata Speech is the mother of the Vedas, the fountain head of all knowledge secular and spiritual. Amrtasya nabhih – speech leads to immortality, the hymn states. By being the mother of the great Vedas speech leads to immortality. Yamrsayo mantrakrto maisinah anvaicchan devastapasa sramena – Such speech is being sought by the Rishis, the great sages and the even the gods by Taps (self – disciplining) and srama (effort). Such is the greatness of speech. And such is the greatness of the Sanskrit language in which such sublime ideas, one rarely come across elsewhere, are present.

Many things can be said about the greatness of Sanskrit, that, it is the mother of all languages, it is the language of various sciences etc. But this fundamental ideal that speech is worship worthy and has to be sciences. But this fundamental ideal that speech is worship worthy and has be attained by Tapas and srama clearly accentuates the greatness of Sanskrit. Many such elevated and ennobling thoughts, important and remarkable systems of knowledge have emerged from.

Yoga is one such illustrious offspring of samskrtamata, that has radiated peace and harmony, provided solace and healing and spread happiness and welfare worldwide.

But it is felt that this umbilical link between Sanskrit and Yoga is quite often lost sight of due to various factors which may include yoga's globalization, commercialization etc.

Similar is the position of Yoga in the field of Sanskrit and Vedic learning. In scholarly deliberations Yoga's representation is felt, insufficient. Yoga also does not form part of curriculum of most centers of Traditional Vedic and Sastraic learning.

As is the position of Sanskrit learning in Yogic teaching – learning process so is the role of Yoga in Vedic and Sanskrit education.

Hence it is high time this very important issue is addressed and efforts are made to strengthen and fortify mutral relationship between Yoga and Sanskrit. This in short was the objective of the one day seminar that was organized on 29th of August 2013 during the occasion of world Sanskrit Day at Krishnamacharya Yoga Manadiram in collaboration with Samskrita Bharati, Tamilnadu.

Eminent scholars in Sanskrit and seasoned practitioners of Yoga participated and presented illuminating papers. A lot of Sanskrit and yoga enthusiasts participated in the seminar. A follow up four month program called "Yogabhasha pravesha – foundation course in functional Sanskrit" was also conducted. It is a happy occasion to release this collection of papers of the seminar during the valediction of the four month course.

I thank all the eminent speakers of the seminar for consenting to publish their papers.

I also record my gratitude to Dr. Lata Satish, Managing Trustee for providing encouragement to organize the seminar and also publish the proceedings of the seminar.

I thank all the trustees and colleagues of krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram for their support and encouragement.

Thanks are due to Vignesha Printers, Triplicane for their fine printing job.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
