Rajasthan Art and Culture Minister B D Kalla on Saturday urged the Central government to implement the recommendations of the Sanskrit Commission set up by the United Progressive Alliance government.

He was addressing a programme at Rajasthan Sanskrit Academy here.

“Vedas are science, not books and the world can be benefited by the use of the knowledge contained in it,” the minister said.

He described the Vedas as an invaluable heritage of world literature, adding, “The welfare of the world can be achieved by using the knowledge contained in it. The Veda is not a book, it is a science.” Kalla said Sanskrit, the language of the Vedas, presents one of the greatest examples of secularism.
