Hinduism - What Is The Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institution?

Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institution (BORI) is a research institute named for the renowned scholar R. G. Bhandarkar (1837–1925), which was established in 1917. 

The Institute is dedicated to the study and preservation of traditional Indian culture, and it is well-known within academic circles worldwide. 

  • P. V. Kane's History of Dharmasastra and a multivolume critical edition of the Mahabharata, the latter of the two major Hindu epics, have been its two most significant works. 
  • Aside from its publications, the Institute is known for its extensive collection of Sanskrit manuscripts, making it one of India's best research institutions.
