Learn Sanskrit Month 20

The Final installment of the course.

Routine reiteration:

a. Do not get too bogged down by grammar and usage while you learn Sanskrit. Often Sanskrit is considered to be all about mugging up lots of declensions and conjugations and this fears off most students. Instead take is as a natural language. Feel free to make the most blatant grammatical errors so far you are able to convey your message. Develop a feel for the language instead of thinking about grammar.

How did we learn Hindi or English or our mother tongue? Did we learn grammar first or language first? And do we speak these languages in a grammatically correct fashion even today? Why burden Sanskrit with overdose of grammar in very beginning then?

Simply start talking on every other thing in Sanskrit and enjoy the funny pronunciations you make or blatant errors you make in grammar. Have a laugh on that and simply continue. Soon you will develop a natural grip over the language and grammar will be automatically taken care of.

b. Try using Sanskrit words even in your mother language. After all Sanskrit is the mother of all languages. Let the children associate with their Mom and have their foundations strengthened! And in process, your road to mastery of Sanskrit will also be traversed faster.

c. Download a copy of Introduction to Vedas (Hindi) from http://agniveer.com/2045/introduction-to-vedas/ if you know Hindi. This is an amazing text not only to understand Vedic concepts but learn Sanskrit naturally. Because most sections of the book are presented in very simple Sanskrit as well as Hindi. In some sections there are deviations in Sanskrit and Hindi message and it would be a good idea to explore those areas and form the right opinion!

    • Swaminathan says

      Khandooyati meaning itching. The declension of this verb is slightly different from the main ten groups. Hence this gana appears separately.

  1. Krishnarao says

    In the 1990s they found that there were over 2.9 million people who spoke conversational Sanskrit. Today that number is much much greater thanks to Samskrita Bharati.

  2. Akanksha says

    Both Hindi and Marathi alphabets/words are written in Devanagari letters. I find difference in pronunciation in many words. e.g. the word SRISHTI is pronounced as Srishti in Hindi and in Marathi it is pronounced as Srushti.

    the word SANSKRIT is pronounced as Sanskrit in Hindi and the same word is pronounced as Sanskrut in Marathi. Some more words having same pattern – Pruthvi( Earth), Wruksh( Plant), Kruti( creation) etc. in Marathi.
    May I ask which pronunciation is correct ?
