You will Learn

  • Pronunciation of Alphabets- Vowels and Consonants of Devanāgarī lipi (script). This course will give the knowledge of the Saṃskṛta alphabets and how to pronounce them.
  • Basic understanding of Sthāna / place of the sound production of the Saṃskṛta alphabets.
  • Practice of ‘Kaṇṭhaḥ’ / Guttural sounds, ‘Tālu’ / Palatal sounds, ‘Mūrdhā’ / Retroflexes, ‘Dantaḥ’ / Dentals, ‘Oṣṭhaḥ’ / Labials, Kaṇṭhatālu / Guttural – Palatal sounds, Kaṇṭhoṣṭham/ Guttural – Labial sounds, Dantoṣṭham / Dental – Labial sounds etc.
  • The sound production process of Saṃskṛta is very smooth flowing process. It flows like a waterfall or like a river following natural inclination for movement. It is the travel of the prāṇa from in to out. Moving from the place in the mouth that is farthest back to the one that is most front. The contact of different parts of mouth creates the sounds.
  • Chanting all Sāṅkhyakārikās focusing only on pronouncing them properly and not on their meanings.. Kārikā by Kārikā; each Kārikā will be taken word-by-word. And each word will be broken into its components for better understanding and then all the components will be put together to chant the Kārikā in its original form.
  • Mantras, Ślokas, Sūtras, Stotras, Kārikā etc. ought to be chanted as they are written by their authors. They are not supposed to be broken. We break the word only for learning it by the component words, but while chanting we chant the word as it is.
