उत्साह सम्पन्नमदीर्घसूत्रं
क्रिया विधिज्ञं व्यसनेष्वसक्तम्।
शूरं कृतज्ञं दृढसौहृदं च
लक्ष्मीः स्वयं याति निवास हेतोः॥
Goddess Lakṣmī or wealth is attracted to one who is endowed with enthusiasm; who does not procrastinate, who plans his actions and executes them as per the plan, who is not overwhelmed with offerings, who is valourous, never forgets the timely help rendered by others and who has loyal friends.

As a premier Institution in the field of research, KSRI has involved itself actively in the pursuit of excellence in its field of specialisation. In order to remain competitive and abreast of the requirement of Scholars, it is essential that the enhancement of Knowledge and Professional Expertise are maintained at a sufficiently higher level.

There is an imperative need for documentation and publishing the papers among the Peer Group to maintain the standards expected of the Institution. In this endeavour, KSRI had been and is actively involved in the field of publication.

The Journal of Oriental Research

Initiated by Professor S. Kuppuswami Sastri in 1927, the 'Journal of Oriental Research' is a reputed internationally acclaimed magazine covering various aspects involved in Sanskrit and Indological studies. The publication of this magazine was entrusted to the Institute from 1944. 91 Volumes of the journal have been published so far. The Journal, admittedly reputed for original research and scientific investigation, carries general, critical and research articles on diverse indological subjects. Some rare texts, critically edited and appear serially as supplementary to the original volumes later get published as independent books.


Books and Monographs are being published periodically as an endeavour to promote Sanskrit and Indological Studies. They cover a wide range of subjects which include Vedic Studies, Yoga, Literature, Language, Grammar, Philosophy, Religion, Mathematics, Astronomy, Astrology, Medical Science, Ayurveda, Arthasastra, Purva Mimamsa, Advaita, Nyaya, Vaishnavism, Saivism, Arts, Science, etc. Around 100 Books and Monographs including critical editions of hitherto unpublished manuscripts on different aspects of Sanskrit and Indology have also been published so far.

Milestones in KSRI Publication

Publications of the Institute have received wide acclaim and appreciation from scholars all over the world and have been reviewed in the National Dailies like "The Hindu", Academic Journals and other magazines in India and Abroad. KSRI takes pride in announcing the publication of the most ancient Tamil text on grammar "Tolkappiyam" with Roman transliteration and English translation. "Artha Sastra" of Kautilya, acclaimed as the best source of information on ancient Indian Polity and Economics was published for the first time with two lesser known commentaries. Publication of "Lectures on Patanjali's Mahabhashya" by Dr.P.S.Subrahmanya Sastri and "A critical study on Bija Pallava", a 16th Century Text on Algebra have received appreciation from around the world. It had been conducting Seminars, Conferences and Workshops which pave the way for sharing of knowledge and information, assimilation of ideas and expertise for preservation and upkeep of archives.

In this world familiarity breeds contempt. For example, one who lives on the banks of the Ganges might travel to some other water body to be purified. (Srīmad Bhāgavatam.X.84.31)
