This Blog is mainly dedicated to those with busy modern lifestyles, but still interested in keeping learning and sharing Ancient Indian cultural/ Heritage/Sanskrit /Gujarati chants,prayers,shlokas as part of their life and to pass on to the next generation.
I would be posting Sanskrit and Gujarati Prayers, chants,shlokas from Vedic heritage, Bhagwad Gita, etc.most of which are used on a daily basis and or special occasions. The blog will be a combination of audio, video, and written shlokas, chants,prayers most of which will be with English meanings,translations and transliterations so all those who love but are not able to read/write Sanskrit/Gujarati are also able to use the blog. I will post special occasion prayers as well which are passed on to me by my parents and my grandparents. Some of them would be popular and others may be very localized and regional to the western part of India-but extremely heart warming and would love to share it with all.
– use as and when needed
– learn and pass it on to future generation
– save archives for future generation.
Comments, suggestions and questions are most welcome.
