एकैश्वर्ये स्थितोऽपि प्रणतबहुफले यः स्वयं कृत्तिवासाः कान्तासंमिश्रदेहोऽप्यविषयमनसां यः परस्ताद्यतीनाम्।
अष्टाभिर्यस्य कृत्स्नम् जगदपि तनुभिर्बिभ्रतो नाभिमानः सन्मार्गालोकनाय व्यपनयतु स वस्तामसीं वृत्तिमीशः॥ १॥
The Lord, though endowed with magnificent powers that bestows manifold fruits to his devotees, is himself clad only in an elephant-hide; though his body is united with his beloved (Pārvatī). He is yet the foremost of the ascetics, whose mind is unaffected by the sense-objects (of desire); though He supports the entire universe with His eight forms, He is yet devoid of pride (or arrogance). Let (that) Lord Śiva dispel your tendency of tamas (darkness, ignorance) to behold the righteous path.

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.

Invitation

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.

कामधेनुगुणा विद्या ह्यकाले फलदायिनी। प्रवासे मातृसदृशी विद्या गुप्तं धनं स्मृतम्॥
kāmadhenuguṇā vidyā hyakāle phaladāyinī | pravāse mātṛsadṛśī vidyā guptaṁ dhanaṁ smṛtam ||
The knowledge is like a holy Kamadhenu cow. It bears fruit in all seasons. It is like a mother in foreign land. Hence it is considered a secret treasure.
