The Joy of Sanskrit #4 (23,141 downloads)
Authored by McComas Taylor and Grazia Scotellaro
The Joy of Sanskrit is a complete first-year course of twenty-five weeks designed for university students. It teaches Sanskrit as a living tradition. This is in recognition of the fact that many of students have backgrounds in Indic religions and Indian cultural practices, including yoga, art, music, dance and song. As a living tradition, the authors believe that the reception of language (especially the ability to read), should be balanced with its production (writing, speaking, chanting and singing).
