Shri Chitrapur Math
Dear Sanskrit Student,
Parama Pujya Sadyojat Shankarashram Swamiji's
love and reverence for Sanskrit is well known. Swamiji, in
His pravachana-s, has always touched upon the language's beauty
and its capacity to express a thought. Following His instructions
that Sanskrit learning must be made easy and freely available
to everybody who desires to learn it, a group of sadhaka-s
worked to formulate a Step by Step learning programme.
The lessons that you see on our website are
designed to take a student from 'I do not know a word of Sanskrit'
to ' I can't believe that I can decipher this on my own!'
We help you do this through tutorials and exercises in sentence
construction. Answers to the exercises are also given for
you to cross-check the work that you have done.
Whenever you come across a teaching point that you do not
understand, please write to us and your queries will be answered.
We hope that we have, through our lessons,
been able to crack the general notion that Sanskrit is difficult;
it is definitely not. Like any other topic, all it requires
is a respect for the subject and a willingness to learn. And
we are here to help you every step of the way.
The last few years have seen a tremendous
revival in enthusiasm for learning the language. We thank
all the volunteer contributors of stories, text and other
content and acknowledge the inspiration and materials derived
from ancient texts. We also thank every student who has written
in with queries or appreciative messages. This keeps up our
Most of all, our humble and grateful pranam
at the Lotus feet of Parama Pujya Swamiji for giving us this
extraordinary and very fulfilling opportunity to perform Guru-seva.
