Vrindavan, 2019-09-25 (VT): Taking cue from the ‘five-year plan’ concept of planning, Vrindavan Research Institute will be embarking on a five-year project, ‘Yug-Yugeen Shri Krishna Vyapti aur Sandarbh’, alongside the inauguration of ‘Braj Bhasha Academy’ in Vrindavan. As part of the project, digital versions of 35000 rare manuscripts will be made available online.
The Braj Bhasha Academy will work on the study and publication of rare manuscripts available with the Institute. ‘Haveli Sangeet’ and ‘Samaaj Gayan’ which are an essential element of Braj culture will be an important part of research at the Academy.
At a recently organised press conference, VRI President R.D. Paliwal said that the Institute is working towards making all research done by Indian and international scholars on the various aspects of Braj culture available on a common platform. Apart from bringing together intellectuals working on Shri Krishna’s life and pastimes under its five-year project ‘Yug-Yugeen Shri Krishna Vyapti aur Sandarbh’, VRI will also manage the ‘Gita Project’ based on Shrimad Bagvad Gita.
Shri Paliwal further informed that VRI premises will be developed in accordance with the culture and tradition of Braj.
