Description

The Sanskrit Course being offered is a basic, introductory course. The skills that the student will acquire are reading and writing of the Devanagari script.

The ten weeks cover sounding and learning the alphabet; the symbols and the samyoga combinations. These enable the student to read verses from the Bhagavad Gita and a few prayers. The writing exercises emphasise the beauty of each letter and how the letters are formed.

As this course is fundamental, it is more suitable for students who have little or no knowledge of Sanskrit. The course opens the door to studying the subject further.
