He delivered a lecture on ‘Ancient and thriving Hindu civilisation’ at the Sri Krishna mutt in Udupi, and he said that the government should be encouraging teaching of Sanskrit in all the schools, as it will improve mental development of these children.
The lecture was organised at the Rajangana of the Sri Krishna mutt as part of the ‘Vishwarpanam’ programme, marking the end of the ‘Paryaya’ period of the Admar mutt.
He said the Hindi, Urdu, Marathi and Nepali languages use the Devanagari script as all these languages originated from Sanskrit. All of the literature which is in relation to Yoga is also in Sanskrit.
Swamy said that the growth of the Sanskrit language will also help unite the Hindus, and will create a spirit of oneness in them. Admar mutt junior seer Swami Ishapraiya Teertha presided over the programme. Edaneer mutt chief Swami Sachidananda Bharathi Teertha also spoke on the occasion.
