外文标题：Sanskrit summer camp attracts 60 intellectuals in China
BEIJING: A group of 60 Chinese intellectuals have enrolled at a Buddhist Institute for a free summer camp to study Sanskrit to understand the religious and yoga texts better as the ancient Indian language is becoming popular among the new generation of Chinese in the Communist nation.
The trainees were selected from more than 300 candidates and cover a broad sphere of professions, including yoga instructors, mechanical designers, performers, hotel management and environmental protection personnel.
Their study at the Hangzhou Buddhism Institute in eastern China over the next six days will focus on reading and writing Sanskrit.
“The language has very complicated grammar. For the present tense alone, the inflection of one verb can have 72 alterations,” Li Wei, an instructor who holds a doctorate in Indology from the University of Mainz, Germany, said.
Sanskrit has gained prominence in China since Buddhist texts were brought by famous monks like famous Chinese Monk Xuan Zang after 17 year long journey to India in sixth century.
Sanskrit is taught in Chinese universities ,but not in Indian Universities In Tamilnadu Mr.Karunanithi abolished Sanskrit from schools as he could not differentiate Hindi and Sanskrit.further he linked Sanskrit to Brhamins whom he wanted to liquidate like Jews in Germany Atleast he wanted to kill the culture
Who said Indian Universities do not teach Sanskrit? Unfortunately there are few takers today compared to my parent’s generation when they had Sanskrit in school curriculum.
How many jobs are there for Sanskrit specialists?
British recognized sankrit,this language was almost compulsory in schools all over India during British period. After their departure Sankrit was removed from schools,slave Indians only want to master their colonial masters language to become international slaves but become only English slaves
Ya atleast we can communicate globally with this language. Take your self for example if you would have written this piece in Sanskrit , who would understand
FYI, The yoga teachers across India is about 2000. out which 750 from TN
