Sanskrit language भाष्य’
Vedic literature is written in Sanskrit, the oldest language on the planet. It literally means ‘purified language’ or ‘perfectly done’:
Kritá: ‘made, refined or work’ (from the root kri; it is related to the word karma: ‘action’)
Sanskrit is the origin of more than 150 languages in the Proto-Indo-European philolinguistic tree.
Languages that derive from Sanskrit:
-Germanic: Danish, German, Celtic and English.
-Romances: Latin, Greek, Spanish, Italian, French, Portuguese.
-Arabic: Hebrew, Persian and Arabic.
-African, Asian and Afro-Asian like Japanese and Sudanese.
Archaeologist J. P. Mallory uses a proverb (written in Sanskrit, Lithuanian, and Latin) to show his parentage:
Sanskrit: “Devas adadāt datás, Devas dat dhānās.”
Lithuanian: “Dievas davė dantis, Dievas duos duonos”.
Latin: “Deus dedit dentes, Deus dabit panem.”
English: “God gave us teeth, God will give us bread”.
One can observe the clarity, order and logic in the Devanagar alphabet’s structure and design. Its consonants (vyangana) are systematically divided into vibrations that are born respectively in this order:
1) Throat (guttural).
2) Anterior palate (palatals).
3) Posterior palate (cerebral).
4) Teeth (dental).
5) Lips (labial).
Sanskrit vowels (svaras) are also divided according to the area of the mouth and brain where its vibration originates and extends to.
This means that the effect that each word causes on the brain when pronounced defines its etymology. Thus Sankrit words have a direct relationship between the meaning and the natural effect that its pronunciation has on the psyche.
“Sanskrit, apart from its antiquity has a wonderful structure, it is more perfect than Greek, more complete than Latin, and more exquisitely refined than both”
(Sir William Jones. Collected Works, Volume III: 34-5. 1786)
