If you were looking for a site that would provide you with Hindu spiritual and devotional granthas in Bharatiya languages, you needn’t look further than Vaidika Vignanam. The site contains information about Hindu deities, festivals, and stotras in several Bharatiya languages.
The site is easy to navigate, and one can search for stotras by language, deity, and even authors. Information is available in Sanskrit, English, Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Konkani, Telugu, Punjabi, Assamese, Gujarati, Malayalam, Kannada, Oriya, and Bengali Bharatiya languages, as well as in Nepali and Sinhalese. Besides the English script, it also contains material in both Devanagari and Grantha scripts.
The About Us section reads:
Vaidika Vignanam includes not just Vedas but everything that is derived from Vedas as well. If Vedas are like trees, then scriptures like Ramayanam, Bhagawad Gita, Slokas, Stotrams, Mantras, and Devotional Keertanas are like fruits and flowers from these trees. They are as important and respectable as Vedas themselves. The goal of this Web site is to capture all of that information in a single place.
You will find the spiritual and devotional literature in various Indian languages on this site. The purpose of this site is to serve everyone with the vast amount of Indian literature that is available, which is sometimes hard to find, especially on the Internet.
Vaidika Vignanam truly comes across as a treasure trove of Hindu knowledge. It also has a discussion forum that helps one connect with like-minded people and get one’s doubts clarified. Readers can also contribute stotras.
Another exciting feature is the Panchang which provides essential information about the day as per Bharat and American timings. The Panchang carries information about the day’s festival, tithi, Rahu Kaal, and timings of sunrise, sunset, and moonrise, among others.
From daily prayers to Vedic chants and Upanishads, the site has a vast collection of stotras. One can also search for stotras based on deities, the nature of the stotra, etc. It also has the entire Chanakya and Vidura Neetis besides a few other Tarka and Neeti Shastras. It is pretty rare to find philosophical works such as Bhartruhari’s Neeti Satakam and Ashtavakra Gita in the same place. It has the Srimad Bhagavad Gita and Patanjali Yoga Sutras.
It must, however, be pointed out that one would only come across the stotras and not their meanings. Nevertheless, it definitely serves as a one-stop destination for several shlokas and stotras. Vaidika Vignangam mobile app is also available on Google Play and Apple Store.
