Sanskar TV is an Indian television channel dedicated to broadcasting programs on the "Indian philosophy, religion, spiritual solidarity, and culture"[1] and focuses more on devotion than spiritualism.[2] The channel started broadcasting in June 2000[3] and in 2004 The Tribune reported it to have been gaining popularity over the then dominated entertainment and news channels on Indian television.[2]

Through various spiritual discourse programmes the channel also focuses on younger generation.[4] Discourses are given by various notable spiritual gurus like Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Baba Ramdev, Jagadguru Kripalu Maharaj, Ramesh Oza, and Morari Bapu. The shows include bhajans, kirtans and broadcasts from various pilgrimage places.[5]
