Sanskrit is a traditional and ancient Indian language. Sanskrit is Hinduism’s principal sacred language, and it has been employed in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism as a philosophical language. Sanskrit is an Old Indo-Aryan standardized dialect that dates back to 1700-1200 BCE as Vedic Sanskrit. The Rig Veda, Sam Veda, Yajur Vedia, and Atharva Veda are the four major compilations. The Vedas are a collection of hymns, incantations are known as Samhitas, and theological and philosophical guidance for Vedic priests, or Brahmans. Sanskrit is known as “Devvani” or “Survani” because it is the language of the gods and the Vedas. Sanskrit was utilized as a common language during the Vedic period. Its origins can be traced back to the Aryans, and it is regarded as one of the world’s oldest languages. Most of the languages spoken in India today, such as Hindi, Marathi, Sindhi, and Punjabi, have their roots in Sanskrit. Apart from this, Sanskrit is also regarded as Nepali’s mother tongue.
