A Vedic Word Concordance - History of Development

History of Development

Acharya Vishva Bandhu Shastri continued the work of Swamis Vishveshvaranand and Nityanand who had published word indices to the four Vedic Samhitas in 1908-1910, leading the Vishveshvaranand Institute from 1924 until his death in 1973.

After the partition of India, the institute moved to its present premises at Sadhu Ashram, Hoshiarpur, Punjab (Republic of India). Most of the c. 6000 Sanskrit manuscripts, formerly located at the Dayanand College of Lahore, were clandestinely brought to Hoshiarpur at the time. Since 1965, the institute has been incorporated in the Panjab University, Chandigarh as the Vishveshvaranand Institute of Sanskrit and Indological Studies (VISIS).

Based on the Vedic Word Concordance, the institute currently compiles a Dictionary of Vedic Interpretation, of which the first volume, running up to the lemma Agni, has been completed.

Famous quotes containing the words history of, development and/or history:

    In the history of the United States, there is no continuity at all. You can cut through it anywhere and nothing on this side of the cut has anything to do with anything on the other side.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    Dissonance between family and school, therefore, is not only inevitable in a changing society; it also helps to make children more malleable and responsive to a changing world. By the same token, one could say that absolute homogeneity between family and school would reflect a static, authoritarian society and discourage creative, adaptive development in children.
    Sara Lawrence Lightfoot (20th century)

    He wrote in prison, not a History of the World, like Raleigh, but an American book which I think will live longer than that. I do not know of such words, uttered under such circumstances, and so copiously withal, in Roman or English or any history.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
