Namaste all,

Forwarding this write-up about an upcoming course in Sanskrit Grammar. Pl. read it through and ponder on its utility to your life.  I read about an 84 year old man from Mumbai registering for a postgraduate course in Sanskrit and completing it.  That shows age is no bar when it comes to learning anything new.  The only requirement: Interest.  In Tamil there is a saying: vaazhum varai kal  – Learn as long as you live.
Pl. share this with youngsters, your children, relatives, etc.
Thanks and warm regards

Dear All, 

Hari: Om! Welcome again! This 18 month course will lead us to a traditional title “Modern Grammarian” or “अभिनववैयाकरण:“. It will give us an expert level understanding of Sanskrit Grammar that eludes post graduates and for that matter many professors in Sanskrit at Harvard, Oxford or even Indian Universities. However, such an expertise does not come without intense hard work. If we are not committed to give at least 600 hours for this, we cannot achieve the title. This commitment is also the best guru dakshina we can give to Sri Mani Dravid Sastrigal, who has volunteered his time in spite of his busy schedule to teach usIn the past, students spent years learning kavyas and vyakarana in gurukula before proceeding to study Nyaya and Mimamsa. The course has been simplified significantly to suit modern audience using modern technologies but the outcome will be the same. At the end of 18 months, each one of us would have memorised 4000 sutras of Panini, 2000 dhatus from which all words are derived, hundreds of word forms and be able to confidently read, write, speak and listen . We will be able to use Paninian sutras to grammatically analyse any complex Sanskrit text.
The first module is to familiarise us with Sanskrit. If Sanskrit is the only language, we will learn it like children learn their mother tongue by associating sounds with objects and actions. The first module is designed to teach Sanskrit as a mother tongue. However, this module will not be delivered for this batch for two reasons. One, there is a lot of content available from Samskruta Bharathi and other organisations to give language familiarity. Second, we as a group have enough knowledge to understand Sanskrit lectures and should help each other. We will straight away start with Module 2.
Please contact Sri Rajaram Venkataramani on the email id provided above for more details.

    Here’s the course’s playlist:

    नृत्तावसाने नटराजराजो ननादढ​क्कान्नवपञ्चवारम्।
    उद्धर्तुकामस्सनकादिसिद्धानेतद्विमर्शे शिवसूत्रजालम्॥

    येनाक्षरसमाम्नायमधिगम्य महेश्वरात्।
    कृत्स्नं व्याकरणं प्रोक्तं तस्मै पाणिनये नमः॥

    अज्ञानतिमिरान्धस्य ज्ञानाञ्जनशलाकया।
    चक्षुरुन्मीलितं येन तस्मै पाणिनये नमः॥

    ओन्नमो भगवते श्रीपाणिनये। 🙏🏼

    वाक्यकारं वररुचिं भाष्यकारं पतञ्जलिम्।
    पाणिनिं सूत्रकारञ्च प्रणतोऽस्मि मुनित्रयम्॥
