Sandhyaa Vandanam, Through the Modern Eye: Significance of Twilight Worship at the Twilight of Western and Eastern Spirituality

Authors: Sai Venkatesh Balasubramanian

A paradigm shift towards Eastern Spirituality and Philosophy in aspects of science, management, arts and medicine is more than evident. Taking cue from this, the present article looks at various key components of SandhyaVandanam from the perspective of the “modern eye”, by understanding the meaning and significance of each term used, both on lexical and deeper philosophical levels, aided by the concepts of the 51 Aksharas. From the explorations, the observation of the universality and magnificence of the practice along with its relevance even in the present day is easily observed.
