Learning Sanskrit from home: Starting Point

Learning Sanskrit from home: Starting Point

To learn any language, we have to start with vowels and consonants, in sanskrit collectively they are called as वर्णमाला  (varnamala). Let me list out all वर्णमाला of sanskrit here.

स्वर (Svara)

अ  आ   इ   ई   उ   ऊ   ऋ   ॠ   लृ   ॡ  ए    ओ  औ  अं  अः

व्यञ्जन (Vyanjana)

कण्ठय Gutturals

 क्

 ख्

 ग्

 घ्

 ङ्

 

तालव्य Palatals

 च्

 छ्

 ज्

 झ्

 ञ्

 

मूर्धन्य Linguals

 ट्

 ठ्

 ड्

 ढ्

 ण्

 

दन्तय Dentals

 त्

 थ्

 द्

 ध्

 न्

 

ओष्ठय Labials

 प्

 फ् 

 ब् 

 भ् 

 म् 

 

अन्तःस्थ Semi Vowel

 य्

 र् 

 ल् 

 व् 

 

 

Sibilant

 श् 

 ष्

 स्

   

 

Aspirate 

 ह्

 

 

In sanskrit the most important thing is the way we pronounce the characters, also there is more to learn about these वर्णमाला (varnamala). 

Pure स्वर (svara) (vowels) in sanskrita are of two types Short Vowels and Long Vowels, and the pure vyanjanas ( consonants ) are represented with a halant symbol  (्) . Still there are lot more to learn about अनुस्वारः (Anusvara) and  विसर्गः (visarga).

So this is the starting point for learning Sanskrit. I request to download following android mobile application which will be the starting point for learning sanskrit. These mobile applications helps you to learn sanskrit at home.

Sanskrit a perfect language : http://knowledge-cess.com/sanskrita-vyakarana-separation-distinctionanalysis-explanation/

Sanskrita Vyakarana : separation, distinction,analysis, explanation

Sanskrita Vyakarana : separation, distinction,analysis, explanation

Sanskrit is called as a perfect language, an unambiguous language and hence NASA preferred it for Artificial Intelligence. But why so ? How it is different from any other language in the world? Why it is called as a most scientific language? What is so unique in sanskrit language ?

To answer all the above questions, we have to really look into the vyakarana in sanskrit. Though I don’t have enough knowledge in sanskrit, I am writing these articles after exploring a little bit about sanskrit with the help of few online courses of sanskrit ( Vyoma Linguistic Labs : Learn Sanskrit From home )

Vyakarana in Sanskrit:

In english if I say Read it is a just a word and you can not give any more explanation for that, is there any logic behind formation of this word ? Is there any explanation for the word Read‘ or ‘Reading ? Definitely we don’t have any answer for this question.

In sanskrit there is nothing which has no explanation, there is a logic behind formation of each and every word. Let me take simple example

  1. There is a word पठति in sanskrit, which means Read but as I said above for every word there is an explanation, let us see how this word formed

पठति  = पठ्‌ + + ति 

पठ्‌ – धातुः [अर्थं निर्दिशति]

अ – विकरणप्रत्ययः [गणं निर्दिशति]

ति – तिङ्‌प्रत्ययः [लकारं निर्दिशति] |

2. भ्वादिः (प्रथमः गणः = भू इत्यादयः धातवः; “भवतिइत्यादीनि क्रियापदानि) | यस्य गणस्य आदौ भू-धातुः अस्ति, सः भ्वादिगणः |

विकरण प्रत्ययः शप्‌ → अ

उदाखाद्‌ (खादति), पठ्‌ (पठति), क्रीड्‌ (क्रीडति), वद्‌ (वदति); शुच्‌ (शोचति), वृत्‌ (वर्तते); जि (जयति), स्रु (स्रवति), हृ (हरति)

Hope these simple examples help us to understand how rich the sanskrit language is. All I am trying to tell here is learn sanskrit, we have plenty of online courses, videos, mobile applications but I prefer the following pointers because these mobile apps for sanskrit are really very nice.

Sanskrit : World’s Oldest Language

Sanskrit : World’s Oldest Language

Being a Bharatiya, I am proud to write this article on sanskrit, Swami Vivekananda said one day Bharat Mata would be Jagat Guru”, how true it is ! We taught to the world how to speak, we taught to the world how to write, our Vedas,upanishads has references to most of the modern scientific inventions, We knew solar system, galaxies thousands of years ago and what not ?. Every Indian is proud about what our country has given to the world. 

I must say the best thing among all our contribution is sanskrit, There is lot lot to know about sanskrit, I just started learning and I am enjoying. I thought to share my understanding and importance of sanskrit in couple of articles.

How old Sanskrit is ?

Vedic sanskrit is being the oldest, dating back to as early as the early second millennium BCE. This qualifies Rigvedic Sanskrit as the oldest. Classical Sanskrit is the standard register as laid out in the grammar of Pāṇini, around the fourth century BCE. 

Interesting Facts About Sanskrit Language:

  1. Improvements in Concentration Level : learning sanskrit and speaking in sanskrit language improves our concentration level, If we take current generation, our kids has concentration of maximum 3min – 4min. But study has revealed that (an experiment conducted by Vyoma Labs Banglore ) a student learning sanskrit and speaking in sanskrit has gained concentration level upto 15min – 20min.
  2. As Medicine :  Research has proven that probability of Alzheimer disease is less if sanskrit is being used for speaking.
  3. Brain Gym : While speaking in sanskrit our both hemisphere of brain will be used which is a great exercise for your brain ( reference : Brains of verbal memory specialists show anatomical differences in language, memory and visual systems ).
  4. If English language has 25million words, sanskrit has 105million+ words, in fact lots and lots of Vedic scriptures have lost due to many reasons, so we can not give exact number.
  5. Sanskrit is not just a plain language like any other language, it is logical and mathematics involved within it Example : Just see how the words in sanskrit are formed, it is called as vyakarana (व्याकरणम्‌ )
    .
  6. NASA looking at sanskrit for their work on artificial intelligence – (Ref : NASAKnowledge Representation in Sanskrit and Artificial Intelligence )
  7. NASA wish to work with sanskrit scholars – (Ref : http://www.ibtl.in/news/international/1815/nasa-to-echo-sanskrit-in-space-website-confirms-its-mission-sanskrit/ )
  8. There is evidence that Pāṇini’s work in this area influenced modern linguists like de Saussure and Chomsky.

Well the list continues and I am still collecting lot of data on sanskrit, but don’t you think these interesting points motivate you to start learning sanskrit ?

Definitely it is great to find a very good Guru to learn sanskrit, but you can quickly start your learning sanskrit using these mobile apps and video links. Currently I felt these sanskrit learning mobile applications are really great for me to start.

In ‘Yantrasarvasva‘ it was given as follows, In order to provide electric force to all parts of the vimaana and make them operate smoothly the Shakti-panjara-keela yantra is to be installed.

“Charging of all parts of vimaana with electric current the Shakti-panjara-keela is made as follows.

Steel, crownchika alloy, and iron, in the proportion of 10,8, and 9, to be powdered and filled in crucible and placed in aatapa furnace and heated to 100 degrees and charded with 10 degrees of electric current, will yield Shakti-garbha metal with whcih the yantra is to be made.

Pythagorean Theorem In Ancient Indian Mathematics : Baudhāyana Sulbasūtra

Pythagorean Theorem  In Ancient Indian Mathematics   : Baudhāyana Sulbasūtra

Many great mathematicians have born in Bharat several thousands of years ago, Ancient Indians invented several theorems in mathematics. Aryabhata the Indian Mathematical Genius lived in (476–550 CE) he worked on approximation of pi(\pi) and concluded that its irrational, he has given the formula for the area of a triangle, he discussed the concept of sine etc.

But I would like to discuss one of the most popular theorem Pythagorean theorem, it is named as Pythagorean theorem but it was proved by Ancient Indian Mathematicians several hundreds of years before even Pythagoras born. Just look into the sutra given below.

Highly Advanced Aliens Created US

Highly Advanced Aliens Created US

Imagine the world around you, the planet you are living on, your every relation, sentiments, everything you touch, you feel and everything you see around you is just a space created by some one ? Oh yeah you can call him as God, but scientists say a different story 🙂

Ofcourse not a god but what if it is an alien ? aliens programmed and created everything ? Assume that highly advanced aliens running a huge code using highly advanced super computers and we are living in such a hologram.

Alien created world
Alien created world

You can’t argue with me on this, you can’t just say this is all just imagination because I am completely against you 🙂 I argue that it may be possible. Ofcourse I am open for any discussion, but before raising your question answer yourself for my question – ” If Humans can go to space and create space station where any one can live, then why can’t this is not possible” ? . “If a scientist like Stephen Hawking speaks, small electric pulse can activate human memory cells” then if a computer program can read your brain cells it can also simulate something like life on planet !

Anything is possible you can use optical physics and play with rays of light and make you feel falling down, you can make some one feel sleepy with your illusive act, then it means you can control some one with some action.

 

Think about it 🙂
