Course Plan

It has two parts:

  1. (A) In the first part, you learn to write and pronounce Sanskrit, a basic vocabulary, and a substantial part of the grammar. To keep memorization to a minimum, I supply a number of tables (sandhi, declensions, conjugations, etc).

  1. (B) In the second part, you analyse and translate selections of different texts (Bhagavad Gītā, Upaniṣads, Buddhacarita, etc). In the meantime, you practice how to use Sanskrit dictionaries, and you learn more vocabulary and grammar. Whenever required, I provide background knowledge about the religion and philosophy of Ancient India.

About me

My name is Alejandro Gutman and I currently live in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I have studied Sanskrit at the University of Buenos Aires and have been teaching Sanskrit for several years. I translated from Sanskrit into Spanish the Bhagavadgītā, the poems of Bhartṛhari and the Buddhacarita. I also wrote a book about the civilization of Ancient India and created two websites. One of them (in Spanish), “El Portal de la India Antigua”, deals with several aspects of Ancient India (a summary in English is found here). The other (in English), called “The Language Gulper” has detailed information about almost 200 languages and families.
