Course Details

This beginner course on the ancient language Sanskrit will have an efficient curriculum that will have a very detailed breakdown. The term 'Sanskrit' is derived from the conjoining of the prefix 'Sam' meaning 'samyak' which indicates 'entirely', and 'krit'. The name indicates perfectly or entirely done in terms of communication, reading, hearing, and the use of vocabulary to transcend and express emotion. Sanskrit in terms of its literary association is classified into two different periods, the Vedic and Classical. Vedic Sanskrit is found in the Vedas sacred texts, especially the Rig Veda, the Puranas, and the Upanishads where the most original form of the language was used. The Sanskrit language has been the traditional means of communication in Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, and Sikhism. Sanskrit literature holds the privilege of being used in ancient poetry, drama, and sciences, as well as religious and philosophical texts. In this beginner course by Vishal V Desai which will span for 40 weeks (10 months), students will be introduced to the following chapters:
- Introduction to Varnamala,
- Maheshwara sutras,
- Pratipadikas and Namapada introduction,
- Subanta Prakarana for Rama, Seeta and Vanam Shabda,
- Vyavaharika Samskrita basics, Kathabhaaga and Sahitya,
- Vyakarana introduction with Subantha and Tigantha Prakarana,
- Amrakosha intro and parts of Svargavarga.
