The Sanskrit Language by P S Filliozat has the rare distinction of being both an introductory book and a new ground-breaking study. It is an introductory book because the reader gets an accurate overview of the language, and it is also a new ground-breaking study because Filliozat’s approach harmonizes two different and complementary stands that often have been at war: the Western historical and comparative approach and the indigenous pundit tradition. Sanskrit is described here from these two points of view: what the native speakers knew and felt about their language, and what the foreign scholars did discover in their historical and comparative quest.

In the Indian branch of the Indo-European family of languages, Sanskrit is unique by its antiquity and stability. It has remained a living language over four millenniums. It owes its quality to the efforts of linguistic awareness of the first poets and the learned who used it in the practice of the Vedic religion. Right from the ancient times the grammarian Panini codified the procedures of formation of Sanskrit words. Some centuries later, his commentator Patanjali codified the procedures of interpretation of text.

Sanskrti is properly the language generated and interpreted with such codes. The cultured Sanskrit user or pandit is one who has not only learnt the language, but also knows to use it and to analyze it with the same tools. Thus Sanskrit has always been a powerful instrument of culture and intellectual creation. It has been the learned language of pandits, a link language between the diverse regions of the entire Indian subcontinent, the medium of all scientific and technical knowledge, a language of religious teaching and practice. It has spread over the whole of Asia to the East of Iran.

This book, by taking into account the Western and the Indian view, offers a very balanced presentation of its subject and reflects the latest tendencies in Ideological studies. The richness of Sanskrit comes here in all its fullness: both as a living tool of expression and as an outstanding member of the Indo-European family.

TESTIMONIALS

Yes, I did receive the book just yesterday, finally. I was so pleased to finally receive it. I've already begun reading it! I thank you one last time for your incredible service with this issue, which was begun when I gave you the wrong address. Thus I realize my responsibility for the mess, and am very grateful to you for helping me to make everything right. I will certainly order from Vedic Books in the future, should I be looking for another book that you carry. Happy Holiday season to you, and all the best to you...
