Sanskrit: Level 5

Sanskrit Level 5

In Sanskrit Level 5 we will be learning more consonant ending nouns, the remaining athematic verbs, causative verbs and quotations with the particle इति. We will go deeper into Part II of “Yogāvatāraṇam: The Translation of Yoga,” covering Chapters 9 and 10. This will allow us to read from an even wider range of texts, such as the Dattātreyayogaśāstra, the Vivekamārtaṇḍa, and the Kaṭha Upaniṣad.
