Learn Sanskrit

Online Courses with Sai 

Personalised, individual lessons in Sanskrit, taught by Sai, provide an enriching insight into the intricacies and timeless wisdom of the world’s most ancient language.

In addition to learning grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary, you will also learn how to read Sanskrit as it appears in the Vedic and Yogic texts, using the appropriate intonation style and recitation meter.

The lessons are a valuable opportunity to learn the authentic styles of reading the Vedic literature in Sanskrit, as well as to learn the meanings of the words, verses and prose. The texts you will read from include the Bhagavad Gita, Ramayana and Upanishads.

The study of Yoga and Ayurveda is based on the teachings of ancient Vedic texts whose wisdom is preserved in the language of Sanskrit. Learning how to read and write Sanskrit is not just the acquisition of a new language skill, but the building of a type of practice in itself that can deeply enrich your knowledge and experience of the fundamental laws of nature and consciousness.

Sai Ganesh Nagpal’s lessons in Sanskrit taught at our university in the US, conducted in English (he speaks and writes English perfectly), held the students completely captivated. Sai is an able teacher because of his speaking skills, but also because of who he is as a person. He is sincere, humble and also attentive to the smallest detail. Over the course of four years, Sai assisted in teaching many classes at our university, classes from 70 to 80 students as well as smaller classes of 15 to 20 students. We all recognized his talent both for the details of the language and for his excellent teaching abilities.” ~

Sharing Sai’s rendition of the ‘Atma Shatakam‘, a revered Sanskrit poem composed by Sri Adi Shankaracharya in the 8th Century. The Sanskrit verses of the Shatakam, also known as ‘Nirvana Shatakam’, or the six verses of enlightenment, draw the listener inwards to a place of meditative silence. The verses are a treatise in themselves on the ‘Advaita Vedanta’ philosophy. These immortal words repeated at the end of each verse – ‘Chidananda Roopaha Shivoham Shivoham’ – speak of a profound truth to meditate upon. ‘I am Bliss Consciousness, I am Shiva, I am Shiva’. A study of Sanskrit brings a unique understanding and appreciation of ancient texts such as the Atma Shatakam.
