Digital Campus, Madras Sanskrit College


  • Description

    Sri Ramodantam is a very popular and wonderful poetic literature written by an unknown author. Ramodantam is known for its simplicity in terms of both words and verses. Prominent scholars would remember this kavyam from their childhood for the reason that a few decades ago this kavyam was commonly learnt to attain preliminary knowledge in Sanskrit.

    The text of Ramodantam consists of around 200 shlokas. The Digital Campus of The Madras Sanskrit College is happy to bring out this course in our learning platform. In this lesson series, we plan to complete this text of 200 verses, in 25 sessions. Two sessions a week are planned to be conducted via Zoom platform. Later the students can access the recordings in their learning platform as reference.
