Sanskrit, or Sanskrit language, is an ancient language of Indian and Nepali origin. Although it is currently considered a dead language, it still has great importance in the traditions of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism.

The most important religions of the East arose in India and all have characteristics related to karma and reincarnation, using ancient language texts as their basis.

Many people, besides the natives, like to use this language to pay homage to Indian culture, customs, and traditions.
