“In ancient India the intention to discover truth was so consuming, that in the process, they discovered perhaps the most perfect tool for fulfilling such a search that the world has ever known—the Sanskrit language.”

Dear Sir/ Madam,

Under the “Restructuring Sanskrit Scheme” of Department of Sanskrit along with Department of Computer Science & electronics we cordially invite you to participate in three days national workshop on the above said topic and to learn and promote Sanskrit from the software angle so that Sanskrit may be marketed in Education Business as per the Haryana Government policy on Higher Education.

Since programming languages are meant for computers to understand, and the space for ambiguity is at best extremely limited, the grammars describing these languages are extremely clear and well defined in their structure. This is where computing and linguistics converge to a single point. For years both linguists and computer scientists have been working on methods to remove ambiguity from the formulation of rules for communication. A grammar is usually the method to achieve this. A grammar is described as a formal definition of the syntactic structure of a language, usually given in terms of production rules which specify the order of constituents, such as words or phrases and their sub-constituents in a sentence.

In the case of programming languages of late, there is a growing opinion in the computer science community that the grammar of the Sanskrit language was defined in an extremely unambiguous and formal manner, almost akin to the definition style of most modern programming languages. Grammar and philosophy of Sanskrit language continues to impress computer scientists and linguists alike with its perfection and long lasting relevance. An insight into the convergence of computing and linguistics reveals that Sanskrit may be more than the language of religious texts.

In the past years, much time, effort, and money has been expended on designing an unambiguous representation of natural languages to make them accessible to computer processing. These efforts have centered on creating schemata designed to parallel logical relations with relations expressed by the syntax and semantics of natural languages, which are clearly cumbersome and ambiguous in their function as vehicles for the transmission of logical data. Understandably, there is a widespread belief that natural languages are unsuitable for the transmission of many ideas that artificial languages can render with great precision and mathematical rigor. But this dichotomy, which has served as a premise underlying much work in the areas of linguistics and artificial intelligence, is a false one. There is at least one language, Sanskrit, which for the duration of almost 2500 years was a living spoken language with a considerable literature of its own. Besides works of literary value, there was a long philosophical and grammatical tradition that has continued to exist with undiminished vigor until the present century. Among the accomplishments of the grammarians can be reckoned a method for paraphrasing Sanskrit in a manner that is identical not only in essence but in form with current work in Artificial Intelligence. This workshop is an attempt to find out that can a natural language serve as an artificial language also, and that much work in artificial intelligence has been reinventing wheel millennia old.

The reasoning of Sanskrit authors is couched in a style of language that had been developed especially to formulate logical relations with scientific precision. It is a terse, very condensed form of Sanskrit, which paradoxically at times becomes so abstruse that a commentary is necessary to clarify it. One of the main differences between the Indian approach to language analysis and that of most of the current linguistic theories is that the analysis of the sentence was not based on a noun-phrase model with its attending binary parsing technique but instead on a conception that viewed the sentence as springing from the semantic message that the speaker wished to convey. In its origins, sentence description was phrased in terms of a generative model: From a number of primitive syntactic categories (verbal action, agents, object, etc.) the structure of the sentence was derived so that every word of a sentence could be referred back to the syntactic input categories. Secondarily and at a later period in history, the model was reversed to establish a method for analytical descriptions. In the analysis of the Indian grammarians, every sentence expresses an action that is conveyed both by the verb and by a set of “auxiliaries.” The verbal action (kriya- “action” or sadhya-“that which is to be accomplished,”) is represented by the verbal root of the verb form; the “auxiliary activities” by the nominals (nouns, adjectives, indeclinables) and their case endings (one of six). The meaning of the verb is said to be both vyaapaara (action, activity, cause), and phala (fruit, result, effect). Syntactically, its meaning is invariably linked with the meaning of the verb “to do”. Therefore, in order to discover the meaning of any verb it is sufficient to answer the question: “What does he do?” The answer would yield a phrase in which the meaning of the direct object corresponds to the verbal meaning.

It is interesting to speculate as to why the Indians found it worthwhile to pursue studies into unambiguous coding of natural language into semantic elements. It is tempting to think of them as computer scientists without the hardware, but a possible explanation is that a search for clear, unambiguous understanding is inherent in the human being.

The basic objectives of this workshop cum seminar are:-

1. To make use of the principles and techniques available in Nyaaya, Vaakarana, Sahitya Shastra for

developing new paradigms for the computer.

2. To develop packages for training for the faculties in the scientific work and Shaastric world for making best use of the infra-structural facility.

Though, a variety of Natural Language interface tools like an Editor, creation of multilingual documents with transliteration between the scripts of Indian languages and the Roman script, utilities for sorting, searching, indexing, concordance, various analyses like morphological, syntactic and semantic, lexical update, grammar help, hyperlinks to a variety of rule bases, etc. are developed for this purpose. Their effective application for producing better results is still a great challenge. Computational analysis of Sanskrit Shastras poses still greater challenge as it not only demands the knowledge of computer technology but also a thorough knowledge of the concerned text.

This workshop is an attempt to use the modern technology for analyzing the ancient works will be helpful to the scholastic community as a whole in learning, understanding and interpreting ancient Indian knowledge in a better way. Such discussion and interactions can also prove useful in teaching Ancient Indian Shaastric Texts effectively and with more efficiency. It can also be used as supporting systems for research. Thus, there is an immense potentiality in this field, which needs to be explored further for a better result. In this way we can develop search packages based ancient texts. It is quite obvious that, for preparing such packages, the knowledge of Computer and knowledge of Sanskrit should go hand in hand and complement each other for better results. What is required in future is the increased cooperation between a Computer professionals and Sanskrit Pundits.

One Day National seminar



भारतीय अन्तःकरण(मनो)विज्ञान का परिभाषिकीकरण अन्तःकरण, शरीर एवम् चेतना के विषय

Organized by- Department of Sanskrit, S. D. College (Lahore) Ambala Cantt.

Sponsored by - Indian Council of Social Science Research, New Delhi

Academic Collaboration - Department of Psychology, Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra.

TIMING – 9.00 A.M. TO 5.30 P.M.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Defining Indian Psychology for the 5th time through another interdisciplinary seminar in the terms of working models, concepts and theories of human behaviour from the utilitarian angle is a challenge to every intellectual, academician and scholar. I.P. should not be misunderstood as western psychology being taught by Indian scholars in India and at the same time this particular seminar does not intend to find faults with the present day system of psychology or even undermine its understanding about the human behaviour. For us I.P. refers to the traditional or indigenous understanding of individual or collective human behavior in a particular situation as described by Acharya Shankar in his Adhyaaasa Bhaashaya and other scholars of different systems and makes an effort to introduce I.P. as a scientific system in the class rooms. In the last few years some efforts have been made and some good works have been published in this field. It is in this sense the agenda put forth is an ongoing agenda and shall continue because of the very nature of the things that are being dealt with. We need more clarity about the goal. So what is our aim in this seminar? Do we want to replace /compliment /challenge /solve everyday problems of life or what? Do we want to reiterate what has been said earlier? Do we want to offer a better perspective, better in terms of possibilities for a better world? Mere examination of one perspective may not be enough. For this purpose we expect working models, methods, techniques, concepts, theories, terms to be used for human behaviour and its rational understanding, laboratory/ clinical experiments, tests to be taught to the students and counseling etc from the scholars.

As per the Sanskrit Shaastraas the driving forces of human behaviour काम, द्वेष, क्रोध, लोभ, मद, मत्सर etc. which certainly defines one’s personality (आकृति+प्रकृति) by which one either acts or reacts to the world outside and that too is restricted by 6 sheaths (कञ्चुक) namely – कला, विद्या, राग, काल, नियति, माया (confinement to particular creativity, attachment, knowledge, time, space and individuality) which are responsible for contraction, expansion and control of consciousness, personality, relationships. These factors complicate the human behaviour. More over the use of language makes every iota of human behaviour very very complex. Can we imagine human behaviour in the absence of these six instinctive forces? Can these in anyway be specified as सात्विक/ राजसिक/ तामसिक? How can one evaluate the quantity or quality of these forces? When do they become sickness and need to be cured? If the quantity or quality of any one of these becomes too low then how do we improve these so that a person becomes normal? Can we base the motivational theory only on three instinctive desires- पुत्रैषणा, वित्तैषणा, लोकैषणा? What are the parameters of personality prescribed in Sanskrit Shastras which may include both body and internal faculties (मन, बुद्धि, चित्त, अहंकार, हृदय)? What and how these five internal faculties work or what makes them act the way they act? What are the evaluative methods of five levels of psyche of an ordinary person- क्षिप्त, मूढ़, विक्षिप्त, एकाग्र, निरुद्ध which remains disturbed by five क्लेश- अविद्या, अस्मिता, राग, द्वेष, अभिनिवेश। One very important word of I.P is संस्कार the question is how we can bring the study of it to class rooms and clinics? Does body influence mind or mind influence body? What makes one feel alive- is it प्राण or something else- like- चेतना, चित्, आत्मा? What is the relationship of प्राण and चेतना? How can a person (व्यक्ति) be described wholesome or when can we call him a normal person? Is being normal and healthy one and the same thing? There are many more questions which need to be resolved, defined, reconstructed, restructured and answered in the light of I.P.

We request you to send us a copy of questions in advance so that the technical sessions may be conducted accordingly.

Scholars are very humbly requested to write their papers only from the utilitarian or practical angles so that their material may be utilized in the revised courses of Sanskrit and other related subjects.
