The Sri Aurobindo Foundation for Indian Culture (SAFIC), a unit of the Sri Aurobindo Society, is dedicated to the exploration of the various aspects of Indian culture including dance, drama, architecture, sculpture and music. The research undertaken here offers deep insights into the Indian scriptures and unravelling the hidden wonders and the soul of the Sanskrit language - our glorious inheritance from the days of yore. SAFIC strives to rediscover the genius and outstanding magnificence of Indian culture and works to apply it dynamically to life and all its activities in modern India. It aspires to evoke among the youth a great love for India, pride in their heritage and an aspiration and will to create an even greater future.
Sanskrit has been the language of India’s very soul, the language through which this ancient, great nation has given expression in every field through the ages. If India is to rise again, Sanskrit must play its veritable role in education and in national life. One of the most dynamic, ancient yet developing, most perfect and most beautiful of languages, Sanskrit has much to offer, not only to India but to the whole world. SAFIC has taken up projects on several forums and aspects of Sanskrit in the context of Indian culture and its undertaking to popularize spoken Sanskrit.
