Sanskrit Easter Programme

This year’s Sanskrit event being organised by the Irish School, is taking place again over the Easter Weekend (mornings only), from Friday 7th to Monday 10th of April.

THE MAIN THEME for this satsaga will be the conversation between Yājñavalkya and Maitreyī from the Bṛihadāraṇyaka Upaniṣad which we will chant, study, discuss and reflect on under the guidance of Puṣkara cārya from India.

The day will begin with Vedic chanting which will be conducted by Prasanna Ācārya and followed by study sessions with Puṣkara cārya and Nagendra cārya, all of whom have been steeped in Sanskrit and Vedāntic learning from an early age.

Michael Delaney and Rutger Kortenhorst

This online event is open to those who have at least a basic knowledge of the Sanskrit alphabet and vocabulary.

Each day will have the following elements:

  • Sanskrit chanting of the Medhā Sūktam and the Bṛihadāraṇyaka Upaniṣad to start the day
  • Study of the Bṛihadāraṇyaka Upaniṣad
  • Sanskrit grammar – 3 groups: the advanced group will be given NEW insights into समासs
  • Sanskrit conversation –both introductory and more advanced.

Full notes will be provided on the text and there will be plenty of assistance to guide the study even if you only know a little Sanskrit.
