Sanskrit is a historical Indo-Aryan language, the primary liturgical language of Hinduism and a literary and scholarly language in Buddhism

and Jainism.The gram mar of the Sanskrit language has a complex verbal system, rich nominal declensio n, and extensive use of compound nouns. It was studied and codified by Sanskrit grammarians from the later Vedic period (roughly 8th century BC), culminating in the Pa?inian grammar of the 4th century BC.The grammatical tradition of Sanskri t (vyakara?a, one of the six Veda?ga disciplines) began in late Vedic India and culminated in the A??adhyayi of Pa?ini, a work which consists of 3990 sutras or aphorisms. Katyayana composed Vartikas (explanations) on Pa?ini's sutras. Patajal i, who lived three centuries after Panini, wrote the Mahabha?ya, the "Great Comm entary" on the A??adhyayi and the Vartikas. Because of these three ancient [Sans krit grammarians] this grammar is called Trimuni Vyakarana or 'grammar of three sages'. Jayaditya and Vamana wrote the commentary named Kasika 600 CE, to elucid ate the meaning of the sutras. Pa?inian grammar is based on 14 Shiva sutras. The whole Matrika (alphabet) is ab breviated here. This abbreviation is called Pratyahara.[1] Kaiya?a's (12th centu ry AD) commentary on Patajali's Mahabha?ya also exerted much influence on the dev elopment of grammar, but more influential was the Rupavatara of Buddhist scholar Dharmakirti which popularised simplified versions of Sanskrit grammar. The most influential work of the Early Modern (Mughal) period was Siddhanta Kaum udi by Bha??oji Dik?ita (17th century) and its various derivate versions by Vara daraja. European grammatical scholarship began in the 18th century with Jean Fra nois Pons and others, and culminated in the exhaustive expositions by 19th centur y scholars such as Otto Boehtlingk, William Dwight Whitney, Jacob Wackernagel an d others. Vedic Sanskrit is an Old Indo-Aryan language. It is an archaic form of Sanskrit, an early descendant of Proto-Indo-Iranian. It is closely related to Avestan, th e oldest preserved Iranian language. Vedic Sanskrit is the oldest attested langu age of the Indo-Iranian branch of the Indo-European family. Vedic Sanskrit is the language of the Vedas, texts compiled over the period of e arly-to-mid 2nd to mid 1st millennium BC. Vedic Sanskrit has been orally preserv ed as a part of the Srauta tradition of Vedic chanting, predating the advent of alphabetic writing in India by several centuries. For lack of both epigraphic ev idence and an unbroken manuscript tradition, Vedic Sanskrit can be considered a reconstructed language. Especially the oldest stage of the language, Rigvedic Sa nskrit, the language of the hymns of the Rigveda, is preserved only in a redacte d form several centuries younger than the texts' composition. Recovering its ori ginal form is a matter of linguistic reconstruction. From about the 6th century BC, in the classical period of Iron Age Ancient India , Vedic Sanskrit gave way to Classical Sanskrit as defined by the grammar of Pa? ini. Literature in Sanskrit begins with the Vedas, and continues with the Sanskrit Ep ics of Iron Age India; the golden age of Classical Sanskrit literature dates to late Antiquity (roughly the 3rd to 8th centuries AD). Literary production saw a late bloom in the 11th century before declining after 1100 AD. There are contemp orary efforts towards revival, with events like the "All-India Sanskrit Festival " (since 2002) holding composition contests. Given its extensive use in religious literature, primarily in Hinduism, and the fact that most modern Indian languages have been directly derived from or strong ly influenced by Sanskrit, the language and its literature is of great importanc e in Indian culture akin to that of Greek and Latin in European culture. Some Sa nskrit literature such as the Yoga-Sutras of Patanjali and the Upanishads were t ranslated into Arabic and Persian.The Panchatantra was also translated into Pers ian The International Alphabet of Sanskrit Transliteration (IAST) is a transliterati on scheme that allows a lossless romanization of Indic scripts as employed by th

e Sanskrit language. It is also used to romanize Pa?i.IAST is especially used fo r books dealing with ancient Sanskrit and Pa?i topics related to Indian religion s. The script is, however, insufficient to represent both Sanskrit and Pa?i on t he same page properly because the ?, a vowel in Sanskrit, is the retroflexive co nsonant in Pa?i. Here it is better to follow Unicode and ISO 15919, which is in any case a more comprehensive scheme. IAST is based on a standard established by the International Congress of Orienta lists at Geneva in 1894.It allows a lossless transliteration of Devanagari (and other Indic scripts, such as Sarada script); and, as such, it represents not onl y the phonemes of Sanskrit, but allows essentially phonetic transcription. E.g., Visarga ? is an allophone of word-final r and s. The National Library at Kolkata romanization, intended for the romanization of a ll Indic scripts, is an extension of IAST.
