Why learn Sanskrit ?
Our ancient religious scriptures like the Vedas, Agamas, Shastras, Puranas, Itihasas etc. and spiritual texts of philosophies are all scripted in Sanskrit. Knowledge of religion can be segmented as learning of scriptures and practice of scriptures. The learning aspect covers understanding Upanishads and Vedic literature. The practice aspect requires mastery of the rules of the Agamas. Both Vedas and Agamas are in Sanskrit. Next, looking at spirituality, a seeker needs to understand philosophical texts. These texts have been developed by our ancient Indian philosophical schools in Sanskrit. For example, the texts of Advaita, Dvaita, Sankhya, Yoga etc. Therefore, for the study of religion and for the pursuit of spirituality it becomes essential to learn Sanskrit. Learning Sanskrit is enabled in a structured manner through the courses we offer. Pravesika 1, 2 and Dakshata 1, 2 & 3 are designed to help a student to start from the very basics and reach a level of high proficiency where he can independently comprehend advanced Sanskrit. These courses facilitate higher learning of Sanskrit language also.
