Sanskrit: Level 2
This course builds upon our Sanskrit: Level 1 course. We further develop our understanding through grammar and by chanting and translating verses from yoga-related texts.
We will study chapters 3 and 4 of Yogāvatāraṇam: The Translation of Yoga. This integrates traditional Indian and Western academic methods of learning.
Over nine weeks we learn masculine, feminine, and neuter nouns in all of their eight cases as well as more verbs and sandhi rules. This allows us to read from texts such as the Bhagavad Gita, Hathapradipika, the Sivasamhita, and popular mantras.
