What a human being should learn to become a doctor or a lawyer is easy to answer. But what is it that one should study to become a sincere doctor or a sincere lawyer?

Samskritam means ‘refined’ or ‘sculpted to perfection.’ It is neither a man-made invention nor a mere facilitator of communication. It is a cultured language for the attainment of culture. Each and every syllable and word in Sanskrit is derived from its root. The sounds of Sanskrit language are root-sounds bearing truth-vibrations.
Devabhasha is an attempt, an experiment, a venture; not just to teach Sanskrit in a most natural way but also to instil values.
In addition to the several lessons for making the students familiar with the structure of the language, in Devabhasha, one finds many beautiful songs, stories, skits, nursery rhymes, verses of various types and other interesting materials which enrich the students and inspires them to delve deep into the many splendours of the language.
Human beings are generally aware of their physical, emotional and mental dimensions. Devabhasha beckons towards the fourth dimension – the dimension of the Spirit through the Vedas, Upanishads, Gita and other Sanskrit texts.
Students coming into contact with these verses over a period of several formative years are ensured an integrated and holistic growth of their personality as well.
The values represented in these texts are universal and eternal in nature, saarvabhowmik and sanatana, and they would enrich all human beings.
