Sri Aurobindo observes, “Indian civilisation has been the form and expression of a culture as great as any of the historic civilisations of mankind, great in religion, great in philosophy, great in science, great in thought of many kinds, great in literature, art and poetry, great in the organisation of society and politics, great in craft and trade and commerce.”
SAFIC strives to rediscover this truth and genius of Indian culture and how it can be applied dynamically to life and all its activities. It aspires to evoke among the youth, a great love for India, pride in its heritage and an aspiration and will to create an even greater future.
Sanskrit has been the language of India’s very soul, the language through which India has expressed herself in every field through the ages. If India is to rise again, Sanskrit must play its true role in education and in national life. One of the most ancient, most perfect and most beautiful of languages, Sanskrit has much to give, not only to India but to the whole world. SAFIC has taken up projects on several aspects of Sanskrit in the context of Indian culture and on popularising spoken Sanskrit.
