Welcome to the website devoted to Sanskrit!
We will make available here some helpful materials to study Sanskrit and inform about courses of this beautiful language that we organize regularly in Poland. You will find here some Sanskrit texts and their poetical translations into Polish. In a separate section we gradually collect some precious articles of Indian philosophers and traditional Sanskrit scholars who support our website and activities.
या कुन्देन्दुतुषारहारधवला या शुभ्रवस्त्रावृता
या वीणावरदण्डमण्डितकरा या श्वेतपद्मासना ।
या ब्रह्माच्युतशङ्करप्रभृतिभिर्देवैः सदा वन्दिता
सा मां पातु सरस्वती भगवती निःशेषजाड्यापहा ।
yā kundendu tuṣāra-hāra-dhavalā yā śubhra-vastrāvṛtā
yā vīṇā-vara-daṇḍa-maṇḍita-karā yā śveta-padmāsanā
yā brahmācyuta-śaṅkara-prabhṛtibhir devaiḥ sadā vanditā
sā māṁ pātu sarasvatī bhagavatī niḥśeṣa-jāḍyāpahā
Who is white like jasmine, moonlight, snow and pearls,
who is clothed in white robes,
Whose hands are made splendid by the best fingerboard of lute
as in white lotus flower she rests.
Whom light-beings like Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva
worship daily without rest
Let she, Goddess Saraswati, bestow protection on me!
The above stanza is the invocation to the Goddess of learning and arts chanted in Indian schools at the beginning of lessons. That is why we include it here – let her grace be on this website and on all who open it!
