Book Description
Dr. Yajan Veer Dahiya (Formerely Prof.. and Head, Department of Dayanand Studies Chair and Director, Insititute of Sanskrit and Indological Studies Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra) is an eminent Sanskrit scholar and Indologist. At present he is a Professor and Ex-Head, Department of Sanskrit, Pali & Prakrit and Dean, Faculty of Humanities, M.D. University, Rohtak.

Dr. Dahiya belongs to Dahiya Gotra which came from Maharshi Dadhici. In linguistic process -dh changes into h and final semi vowel i changes into y i.c. (Dadhici-Dadhica Dahiya). Therefore, in due course of time it became Dahiya. This Gotra belongs to Saraswati (Goddess of learning). Once she happened to be wife of Dadhica due to curse of Durvasă, although she was a daughter of Brahma.

In medieval, India for the protection of the country, the Dahiyas fought against the invaders and therefore, they are popularly known as Dahiya-Badshehas now-a-days. Since then they became Khatriyas.

Dr. Dahiya was born in 1949 in the Jat family of warriors and wrestlers of National fame (of village Rohna, District Sonepat, Haryana) for which Panini has recorded a dhatu (root) in the Dhatupatha, 4th century. B.C. or earlier c.g. Jat Samghate (war, battle, killing etc. MWD). Again Panini recorded a word Yaudheya in his Astadhyayī in a number of times and in the contemporary Sanskrit Literature we find a term Ayudhajivindh (those who depend on war) for the same.

In, his childhood, Dr. Dahiya joined the Gurukul Jhajjar, (Paninian School of Grammar) studied there for a number of years and did Shastri and Vyakaraṇācārya. After that he studied Kurukshetra at University doing B.A. (Honours in English). Dr. Dahiya did his M.A. in 1973, Ph.D. in 1977 from Panjab University, Chandigarh and D.Litt. from Garhwal University, Srinagar in 1989. He Served as a lecturer at Panjab

I have great pleasure in placing before Sanskrit scholars the book i.e., 'Philosophy of Sanskrit Language', written through the medium of Sanskrit. This book is divided into the following different chapters Speech/word principle, Sentence, Root (verb), Action, Substance, Aspect-Person-Numbers, Time, Complex Formation, Gender and Brusting point in terms of Philosophical interpretation of Sanskrit Grammar which has so far remamed a desideratum.

Siksa, Nirukta and Vyakarana, the three of the six accessories of the Vedas have direct relation with linguistic and even of this triad grammar has a closer affinity to linguistic philosophy. The uniqueness of Sanskrit grammar lies in its scientific interpretation and philosophical study. The study of Sanskrit grammar, has been prosecuted on two lines viz. Etymological and Philosophical. The Philosophical study has a long and continuous tradition behind it. Acarya Vyadi, the author of the Samgraha exhaustively discussed the eternal and non-eternal nature of word, the relation between word and its meaning etc. Unfortunately, this epoch making book is not available now-a-days. For the first time in the Mahabhasya of Patanjali, we find the philosophical interpretation of Paninian Aphorisms, and followed by Bharthari, Kaiyat, Nagesa, Bhattojidik sita and the numerous others. But a comprehensive study, embracing all the important aspects in terms of its philosophical approach of Sanskrit grammar, has so far not fulfilled the purpose, hence the present work in this direction. This treatise is written in Sanskrit prose and an original work on philosophy of Sanskrit grammar.

I have spent 40 years of my life to study the Sanskrit grammar in its traditional and scientific way, hence it is the result of the same. Therefore, I can say with certainty that it is the "Philosophy of Sanskrit Language', a first full-fledged statement and critical discussion on philosophy of Sanskrit grammar. No scholar, here and abroad has produced such type of monumental work so far.
