Sanskrit: Level 6

In Level 6 we will begin to look at compounds as well as the passive voice, and past passive participles. We will study Chapters 11 and 12 of Yogāvatāraṇam: The Translation of Yoga. Learning how to decipher compounds will dramatically increase your ability to read and understand texts, particularly the Yogasūtra, which is made up of lots of long compounds.
