Pali-Prakrit Inaguration Ceremony

Pali Study Centre Inaugurated by the Governor of U.P.

Inaugurating the Pali Study Center in the Lucknow Campus of Rastriya Sanskrit Sansthan, Hon'ble Mr. B.L. Joshi, the Governor of UP, stated that there are various similarities in ancient Indian Languages i.e. Sanskrit, Pali and Prakrit. These languages have preserved our cultural heritage, from the centuries. Pali language was originated and developed in India, but due to Buddha's preaching in it, it is well developed in foreign countries. After independence, it was our pios duty to popularize these languages. He hoped that the Pali Study Centre will take steps towards this.

Presiding over the function, the Vice Chancellor of Rastriya Sanskrit Sansthan and noted indologist Prof Radhavallabha Tripathi observed that the Sansthan will develop Pali language properly. 'We will popularize Pali through publication of 'Sanskritization of Pali Canons and other activities' through the Center the Vice Chanallor added.
Addressing as a guest of Honour, Dr. (Mrs) Anita Bhatnagar Jain, Joint Secretary (languages), MHRD, Govt. of India, told that Pali is the younger sister of Sanskrit language. Such relationship should  be maintained and respected by everybody. Ancient languages are the source of knowledge. Buddha's compassion is preserved in Pali while Mahaveera's non-violence is presented in Prakrit language. She advised the Pali literature, which in written in Sri lanka, Myamaar, Thailand, Laos etc must be available for Indian scholars also
