Sanskrit is the symbol of human refinement and the rhythm of life. Sanskrit is the sign of the indestructible, ever-flowing energy and the eternal truth, eternity itself. Sanskrit represents our true self. – Mohanji
Himalayan School of Traditional Languages (HSTL) is a global initiative inspired by Mohanji, to spread the light of Sanskrit to reach every corner of the world, thus making the human mind peaceful and aligned. HSTL is aimed at introducing the world to the ancient arts and sciences that were written in Sanskrit and as yet, not entirely revealed to the world.
Sanskrit is considered as the mother of all languages. Knowing Sanskrit enables one to learn other languages with more ease and understanding. Sanskrit literature highlights the importance of humanity, moral values, how to help the poor and the harmonious development of the individual and society. Helping mentality, non-violence, truthfulness, all these values can be learned from Sanskrit Subhashitas. Sanskrit has contributed greatly to every branch of knowledge like Arts, Culture, Dance, Drama – in all of them, we see the stamp of Sanskrit. It is good if the modern generation has an inclination to study this language and savour the beauty and richness of the culture which the world has now begun to recognize.
Further, Sanskrit has the ability to purify and heal the body, mind and spirit as the sound vibrations contained in mantras directly influence the subtle energy vibration of cells and organs, the nervous system and the chakras. Chanting of Sanskrit hymns improves focus and has a positive impact on one’s intellect too.
That said, despite all these benefits, Sanskrit is still not well known among the masses. Some refer to it derogatively as a “dead language”, others as an “elitist language”, yet others question its utility in today’s world. In such a scenario, making Sanskrit accessible to the masses and promoting the correct understanding of the language is a priority.
This is the grand vision of HSTL - to spread awareness of Sanskrit around the world, and to make it “cool and trendy” so that the deep benefits of the language can reach more people.
“For me Sanskrit is not just a language. It’s a culture. It represents a grand great tradition. Sanskrit is the essence of what we are. Sanskrit has just happened on the canvas of our existence from Vedic times. Sanskrit is pure and Sanskrit can never be contaminated. Sanskrit is essential to test and taste frequencies which are not easy to understand in the world of noises. Sanskrit is the essence in the world of noises. Sanskrit is real. There is no comparison to Sanskrit. No other language will come close to Sanskrit. It not only explores the deepest sacred secrets from the past which are mostly written in Sanskrit in India but it also enhances the ability to align ourselves through those words. This is the language which aligns. This is the language which organizes you and this is the language that rejuvenates every cell when spoken or chanted. Sanskrit is our heartbeat. Sanskrit is the heartbeat, the sound of Bharat. Sanskrit is real. Sanskrit is imperishable and Sanskrit will live forever.“ - Mohanji
