CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, USA (HPI): Varun Khanna, assistant professor of Sanskrit Grammar (Vyakarana) at the new Chinmaya University at Adi Sankara Nilayam in Veliyanad, Ernakulum, Kerala, is offering a Sanskrit course by Webinar tentatively to start February 5, 2017.
He writes: "This Webinar is for people who want an introduction from scratch to Sanskrit in an easy and systematic way (in English medium). It is not a spoken Sanskrit class, but will be covering Sanskrit grammar from absolute basics until the point of being able to read basic Sanskrit. We will also discuss how to progress further on your Sanskrit learning path. The purpose of this class is to remove the fear of Sanskrit and to expose students to Sanskrit taught through real Shastra methods, to help us understand the minds of the ancient Rishis."
Classes will start tentatively at 9AM IST on Sunday 5 February, 2017, which is Saturday evening for USA/Canada and Sunday morning/daytime for Australia/New Zealand, and will run for 20 classes, leading into the next course. The Webinar will also be available to view on relay at a time that the student chooses (but only at that time), so they can take the class regularly as well. The course will be free, but donations are welcome at the end.
There is as yet no official signup, but interested persons are requested to fill out the form at "source" above. They will then be informed directly of developments regarding the class.
