Agniveer Sanskrit
Agniveer Sanskrit

Third installment of the course.

Just to reiterate once more:

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!

If we find interest in this pilot, we would also work towards web-based live classroom teaching on Sanskrit, a Sanskrit course for Hindi students as well as an expert course on Vedic Grammar. May Ishwar provide us strength for all this.

  • Thanks Agniveer! This Great work can only be done by those people who Loves, Respect “Bharatiya Culture” in every aspect of their lives! Keep it up! 🙂

  • If Nehru had a truly patriotic mind and spirit and was free from his built-in prejudice and antipathy against Hindu and Vedic culture, he would have appointed as his first Education Minister a Sanskrit scholar who would have structured a new Education policy focussed on the revival and reinforcement of Sanskrit taking a pride of place from the primary stages without a lopsided emphasis on learning only its grammar. It was ironic that Nehru insisted on being known as ‘Pandit’ or ‘Panditji’ without being able to quote in his public speeches even five shlokas from Bhagavad Gita! Thanks to his thoroughly anglicised mindset, two generations of otherwise highly educated Indians have remained deprived and woefully ignorant of a rich legacy of assorted Vedic Sciences (called Vedanga-Shastras).

  • I was searching for a good source to learn Sanskrit, thanks to Agniveer for your contribution. By ignoring Sanskrit Bharat lost very much in all aspects.

  • Namaste Agniveer Ji,

    Great work in a easiest way. I have download the script from link. When I read the script I think how easy to translate into Sanskrit. And after reading i think Sanskrit is the easiest language of the world to learn. And I am sure If one pay attention of just few months towards the Sanskrit language one can master in the languages very easily. I have also listen about Sanskrit from Ramdev Baba he always pressurize in his speeches of Bharat Swabhiman to give education to childeren in sanskrit. & mother launguges & Ramdeve Baba also doing his best to promote the Sanskrit & pressuring government for it. It is unfortunate of ours that our country are in grip of corrupted people who are destroying our great ancient culture, languages, education system.
