 Sanskrit is not considered to be merely a language, because only Sanskrit can represent the glorious heritage and civilization of our motherland in all degrees than any other does.
 The Vedas, the ethics (Puranas), the philosophical approaches of its scriptures and so on are the unique contribution to the world by India in the fields of knowledge and wisdom.
 The noble ideas of mankind which are enshrined in the Vedas are imparted through this very language.
 Therefore we hear Swamiji quoting – ‘Sanskrit and prestige go together in India’(Complete Works of Swamiji, Volume III -299.2).
