Sanskrit for Philosophy Students Term 6
‘The Sanskrit language is there, pure and clean, unhampered or distorted by anyone; and it can mirror the laws of the universe to anyone. This is the good companion, the good guide and the great friend. Journey with it and then the Veda (knowledge) is simple and sure.’
– Srī Śāntananda Sarasvatī
For over thirty years students of the School of Practical Philosophy have studied Sanskrit in order to deepen their understanding of great spiritual works such as the Upaniṣads and the Bhagavad Gītā.
The nine-term course developed by the School is offered to the students of the School as well as the general public. The course provides a thorough and systematic grounding in the Sanskrit language, while proceeding in easier steps than an academic course.
The Sanskrit sessions are structured around four themes, some of Term 6’s topics are:
- Spirit ~Introduce simple conversation from Aṣṭāvakra Gītā.
- Sound ~ know and recite the Māheśvarāṇi Sūtrāṇi
- Principles ~Aim and Practice of Scriptural Study through Study, Concentration and Renunciation.
- Practice ~ Principles of Sandhi. Read and discuss. Taittirīya verses to hand if needed.
