Learn Bhagavad Geeta (Ch. 9 and 10) and Advanced Samskritam
In this course students will continue growing their knowledge of Bhagavad Geeta gained from the prior courses SAN1011 to SAN1032, to improve their grasp of Sanskrit Language structures, aptly illustrated through Shlokas of the Bhagavad Geeta from Chapter 9 and 10. Students will enhance their Sanskrit writing and speaking abilities. Using special handouts, each verse of the Bhagavad Geeta will be expounded to unravel the inner meaning of the verse as well as grammatical structures of the language. Students will be able to more formally study Bhagavad Geeta in its native Sanskrit medium, at an advanced level compared with previous quarters.
This course is the 11th in a 16-course sequence which constitutes the Certificate Program in Bhagavad Geeta through Samskritam. In this course, the Faculty will lead the students verse by verse, in sequence through the Bhagavad Geeta, while simultaneously unfolding both the meanings of the verses in Chapter 9 and 10 as well as the nuances of the language. This course will also introduce students to the following elements of the Sanskrit language: detailed analysis of shlokas, research into their constituent elements, elucidation of meanings and structures, all entirely in Sanskrit – with instructor guided methods, using the original Sanskrit language sentences and formations found in the Bhagavad Geeta.
In this course, students will be able to relate to words and expressions from the Bhagavad Geeta in the following areas:
- Conduct full deconstructive analysis of any verse from the source text.
- Integrating different language structures into poetic forms.
- Use of numerous noun and verb suffixes in sentence structures.
