कर्मणा जायते जन्तुः कर्मणैव निलीयते।
सुखं दुःखं भयं क्षेमं कर्मणैवाभिपद्यते॥
It is by the Law of Karma that a living being takes birth, and it is by Karma alone, that a living being meets his destruction. His happiness, sorrow, fear, and sense of security arise as the effects of Karma. (Śrīmad Bhāgavatam, 10.24.13)

Scholars Gateway

KSRI has always been a centre for Research in Sanskrit and Indology. These activities are carried out through in-house Scholars and a society of associated Scholars. KSRI has associations with renowned doyens in these areas, who regularly visit KSRI and are invited frequently for lectures and discussion forums.

Much research work is also carried out by doctorial students and project investigators to whom KSRI acts as a Scholars Gateway.

KSRI has published books and articles based on these research projects; in respective chapters, the research work completed, on-going and also project ideas are listed. KSRI welcomes any organization interested in sponsoring any of the project ideas listed and also individuals who would like to pursue such specific projects.


KSRI all the time pursues special projects in its core areas, through research scholars, students and independently tough its associates. There are all time projects being pursued and projects on the anvil. There are also project ideas which can be discussed and formalized by sponsors and scholars. KSRI invites all interested persons and organizations to join together with its scholars and pursue the passion. Below are the information on Scholars' Gateway, Special projects and studies and projects for discussions.

Traditional Scholars

Indian Scholars - Traditional Study

In the past traditional scholars of great merit were given junior/senior research scholarships by the Govt. of India through the Central Sanskrit Board/Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan. Scholars under this scheme produced valuable texts, Sastra texts/topics, Literature, Agama texts, Dramaturgical texts etc.
Diverse categories of research - traditional, modern, inter-disciplinary etc. by Indian and foreign scholars, were officially started from 1983 within the campus as regular academic work. Besides there was an all round improvement in other academic activities. Special mention has to be made about the efforts taken by the Institute in the field of Saiva and Vaishnava Agamic Studies. No other institution in South India except the concerned departments in the University of Madras has taken up these studies.

एष वै परमो योगो मनसः संग्रहः स्मृतः ।
हृदयज्ञत्वमन्विच्छन् दम्यस्येवार्वतो मुहुः॥
An expert horseman, who wants to tame his stubborn horse, does so by allowing the horse have its way for a moment, and then, by gradually pulling the reigns, places the horse on the desired path. Similarly, the Supreme Yoga process is by which one observes the desires of the mind and gradually brings them under control. (Śrīmad Bhāgavatam, 11.20.21)
