Mantras help transcend the mind and those who chant mantras are Guardians of Mantras.
My mother did her MA Samskrit in recent years.That was after many years of being out of academics, raising us children, traveling where my father’s posting would be. Then she joined the Samskrit Purohit class, learning how to chant Puja s and Rudram- the Shiva’s special puja.
She has an amazing vocabulary of Samskrit, Marathi and English!
The best cook in the world, her most time goes house keeping, cooking, looking after her grandson.
She loves tourism. With me, she travelled up and down the India for my chess tournaments. Recent years she visited Goa, Char Dham Yatra in north- the one consisting of Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri and Yamunotri. Then she went to Leh-Ladakh. Then to the Swargarohan path of Pandavas. And some more places in North near Himalayas. Of course, with my father.
