The Sanskrit courses are being made available in the UK, to meet a demand in this country for teaching Sanskrit at all levels.

The aim is to promote the special characteristics of the Sanskrit language, such as its finely developed system of phonetics and grammar, and its uniquely rich literature forming the basis of yoga, meditation, Indic philosophies, Eastern religions, Vedic astrology and Ayurveda.

The Sanskrit language is particularly relevant to the current age because of its highly developed scientific grammar and beautiful system of sounds, which together open up communication at the subtlest levels.

It has an important role, along with meditation, in facilitating the uplift of consciousness for humanity.

Initially courses are being provided in London for beginners, for those seeking an exam qualification, and for those interested in tasting the language through examples of its finest literature.
