samvAda vargaH Learn Spoken Samskrit

Samskrit is the gateway to the World of Wisdom. It opens our inner self and connects us deeply to the roots of Sanatana Dharma. Samskrit offers a stairway to infinite knowledge and the very foundation of attaining such knowledge starts with developing the skill of understanding simple Samskrit.

This lab is designed to help you ease into the idea of not just learning Simple Samskrit but also conversing in it, in just 18 days. The intention of this lab is to enable you to “understand Samskrit through Samskrit”.  This lab is most suitable for participants of ages 12 and above.

A 6 Week Online Practice Lab to learn Spoken Samskrit

Ever wondered why there are not many Samskrit speakers around us? It is either because we are yet to discover the wonder that is Samskrit, or we have developed extreme reverence for the Samskrit language with the notion that this is difficult to comprehend and cannot be learned easily. 

If you are yet to discover the wonder that is Samskrit, I welcome you to discover - Samskrit, the language that has the power to express higher Consciousness, the language of the soul, with a meaning in each root sound and a vibrational power in each word. 

And if you are already in love with Samskrit but are not learning it, for you feel it is very difficult - Let me tell you this is not necessarily true. Yes, simple Samskrit exists and it can be spoken too!

If you wish to discover the wonder and beauty that is Samskrit! 

Besides the scientific research conducted on the benefits of this language, every syllable we utter has a significant positive impact on us. We already know this through the Mantras or Shlokas we utter regularly. Imagine the effect if this language of Mantras becomes our spoken language. It will open us to the entire world of wisdom: Wisdom of Self and Wisdom of the World. Come, join us and experience the sacred vibrations of the sounds of Samskrit

If you are deeply attracted to the Samskrit language but do not know how to speak it...

Samskrit learning is not as tough as we think it to be. There is a simple Samskrit and a method of teaching and learning, which can make things very very easy for you. 

One of the common mistakes that are made is people try to teach Samskrit through English or any other language; actually, the most efficient method of learning Samskrit is to learn Samskrit through "Samskrit". In just 18 sessions, you can learn Simple Samskrit. 

PS: Simple, not Simplified! We will still base ourselves in Pāṇini's Samskrit. 

If you aspire to understand the Indian scriptures and shlokas in Samskrit easily

As we begin to walk the spiritual path, there arises a deep aspiration in our hearts to read the original verses, original shlokas and scriptures and read and understand them for ourselves. Let language not be a barrier. Learning Samskrit and reading the original works is a way of deepening our spiritual journeys, reclaiming our identities, and being in touch with our roots, connecting to the Sanatana Dharma.

  • Dr. Savitri Dinavahi (Ph.D)

    Samskrit Lecturer

    I am a Samskrit Lecturer at a Degree College in Rajamahendravaram in Andhra Pradesh. I take great pride in teaching Samskrit. I have conducted several camps of "Spoken Samskrit" since 1988. I have taught my family as well. In an attempt to learn further, I pursued Ph.D. in Aaagama Shastram (by Yamunacharya) from Rani Durgavati University in 2004. I have also taught online classes for interested groups. My students old and new are showing great interest in learning Shastras. Presently, I am also taking Valmiki Ramayanam and Bhagavad Gita weekly classes for some of my old students.

    I built this practice lab because I feel the need to spread the knowledge of Samskrit to any receptive individual because of the limitless treasure this language offers. If you are interested in exploring this opportunity then do not hesitate to sign up! It is simpler than you think. 

Testimonials About Purnam's Practice Labs
For my learnings the entire credit goes to Dr. Savitri who not made learning and speaking Samskrit so easy along with that created a interest in me to read and understand our scriptures in Samskrit.
Her sessions are super engaging and fun to attend where she has the innate ability to merge Samskrit into every aspect of our life which makes the sessions extremely special and interesting.
G. Uday Kanth 
IT Professional at TRT Solutions, India
The classes helped to intitate and understand conversation and text in better manner and speak at basic level and slang. I am still learning. The push given in class to communicate in Samskrit only gives the environment to try more speaking thus improving on vocabulary and communication.
