Chinmaya International Foundation Shodha Sansthan has a wing for Manuscripts. Manuscripts are the source of our ancient Indian knowledge. We have two types of manuscripts, such as – Palm leaves and paper manuscripts.
In our depository we have more than 1250 manuscripts related to different walks of Indian knowledge such as : Ayurveda, jyotisha, vyakarana, kavya, darshana, tantra etc.
We have more than 300 palm leaf manuscripts. Most of them are in Malayalam script.
In near future we are planning to collect more manuscripts from other manuscript libraries in mutual sharing basis and make it in digital form to enhance our depository.
We are having some litho-printed manuscripts which were printed about 100 years earlier.
We are having a well-furnished manuscript unit with necessary infrastructure to deal with preservation and digitization of the manuscripts. All manuscripts have been catalogued and digitalized. In due course of time we will be publishing the catalogues in text and e-form for the convenience of the users.
