Weekend Spoken Samskritam Retreat -- Dec 3rd/4th, 2011

"Samskrita is the vessel which holds our Samskriti and our ancient wisdom."
-Sri Krishna Shastri

As part of our continued effort to learn, practice & promote our rich cultural heritage, 
SSVT Samskritam, UMD Samskritam and Samskrita Bharati present a Spoken Samskrit Workshop.

For everyone's convenience the two day workshop has been split over 
two consecutive Dec 3rd-4th (Sat/Sun), 2011.

>>It is mandatory to attend on both the days.<< 


NO prior knowledge of Samskrit is expected of the participants. Participants should be able to speak any of the Indian languages. (The course may be very challenging if you don't understand any of the Indian languages, but you are welcome to take on the challenge.)

What to expect

Samskrita Bharati taught similar courses to over 4 million people, through more than 10,000 teachers. The course is interactive and is designed such that by the end of the course, one will be able to have some basic conversations in Samskritam. From our previous experience, most people achieve this.

Course Material is available at the bottom of this email. Participants are requested to bring print-outs of the course material.


You are welcome to make bring lunch/snacks. Food will also be available for purchase from temple kitchen. See menu here.
