A 2-day National Seminar was very successfully organized under the auspices of Sri Aurobindo Foundation for Indian Culture (SAFIC), Puducherry, in collaboration with Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan, New Delhi. The Seminar was attended by 35 delegates from across the country. Numerous Sanskrit lovers and students from Puducherry were present on both the days, benefiting from the talks, presentations and discussions. One of the highlights of this Seminar was that three Sanskrit teachers from USA, Germany and Ireland, respectively, participated via Skype and enthralled the audience with their wonderful presentations!
As a part of this Seminar, a 4-day poster exhibition, titled ‘Sanskrit and Science’, was also organized from 12th to 15th April 2013 by SAFIC in collaboration with Samskrita Bharati, as a part of its ‘Sanskrit Awareness Programme’. The Exhibition was inaugurated with a ‘Meditation with Music’ session, which was attended by 50 people. The Exhibition had to be extended by three more days, i.e., till 18th April 2013 on public demand. The aim of this Exhibition was to educate the people regarding how Sanskrit encompasses the roots of various branches of Science and Mathematics, such as Physics, Medicine, Astronomy, Astrology, etc. The beautifully anesthetized and duly framed Exhibits were arranged in a chronological sequence in terms of the said branches of Science.
The Seminar was inaugurated on 13th April 2013, also with a Meditation with Music and chanting of ‘OM’ mantra by all the delegates present.
