A gift to attend the annual Sanskrit Language Lecture given by one of my old school teachers Mr Warwick Jessup (who’s still teaching at St James) and hosted by the School of Philosophy and Economic Science
Warwick spoke of the new translation of an Adi Shankara text that he and Elena (Mrs Jessup) have been working on over the last two years, and has recently been published, “Search for Reality”.
In answer to a question about the Sanskrit language, he replied:
“One can’t pontificate about this, one has to experience it… the beauty of the language … it’s obvious, it’s exquisite, it’s Sanskrita. Sanskrita means exquisite, the sounds, the meanings, the whole structure of the language is exquisite, it goes to the heart. It’s purified. This language is for spiritual illumination, for philosophical advancement of humanity.”
