The creation of this webpage took seven years and an estimated Rs 5 crore. For scholars and other people looking for information regarding India’s Vedic legacy, the Vedic Heritage Portal provides a one-stop shop. Thus, it was unveiled during the 36th Foundation Day festivities of the IGNCA by Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Union Culture Minister G. Kishan Reddy.
India’s Vedic legacy is being mapped through the Vedic Heritage Portal. However, the website provides comprehensive information about implements, published books/manuscripts, and oral traditions (yajna-related objects).
The portal’s purpose is to compile data to make the Vedas understandable to people and to offer a platform for ongoing discussion. It is a digital platform that promotes and maintains the “Vedas,” which the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization describes as part of the intangible cultural legacy of mankind (UNESCO).
Nonetheless, the website has more than 550 hours of audio-visual information relating to more than 18,000 Vedic mantras that were created in collaboration with professionals from across the world, Vedic research institutions, Vedapathi families, and others who are familiar with the Vedas.
Together with audio information in Sanskrit, the Vedic Heritage Portal is accessible in a combination of English and Hindi. The webpage also offers lectures and research papers on scientific topics that show how “Vedic knowledge” is relevant from the standpoint of contemporary science.
Therefore, the Vrihattar Bharat project, which is being worked on by the IGNCA, will examine the cultural ties between India and 40 other nations, including those in South East Asia, including Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, and Mongolia.
