Sanskrit: Level 11

Study Sanskrit Online

In Sanskrit Level 11 we will build upon what we have learned in the previous 10 courses, continuing to develop understanding through learning grammar and chanting and translating verses from yoga-related texts.

In this course, we will finish the book – Yogāvatāraṇam: The Translation of Yoga – studying chapter 21 and completing the final review section. Over the course of the 9 weeks, we will learn about the conditional and benedictive moods as well as composite verbs and cvi formation, and directional words with the suffix -anc.

We will mainly be reading passages from the early Upaniṣads, as well as verses from classical and haṭha yoga texts and some popular mantras. By the end of the course, we will have covered pretty much all of the grammatical constructs and you will be ready to read texts on your own.
