Some study of available textbooks made me think that most textbooks do not make “graded learning”. That is what prompted me to enterprise into this blog.
For learning of Sanskrit to become graded learning, it came to mind that it may as well start with simple two-word sentences – a pronoun-subject and a verb. Having composed the first lesson, it transpires that the very first lesson presents a potential of one being able to compose as many as 240 simple sentences !
When starting off in this manner, I have skipped any explanation of the Devanagari script. There are any number of websites, which explain the Devanagari script alongside of pronunciation.
I wanted to focus on what is not available. Having realized, that “graded learning” is not available, I focused on that.

I’m a senior citizen and learning Sanskrit since last few days. Your information is very very helpfull and I wish many beginners should make use of this great effort .Many Thanks-V.Sivasubramaniam
It would helpful to name each chapter so it is easy to find specific chapter
नमस्ते विनोद-महोदय !
I had made “giving titles to lessons” as an exercise / home-work for my students. That worked very well, so that people then summarized in their own mind, what they had learnt in the lesson.
So everyone would have one’s own Index.
Excellent site only for those who know Devanagari script.
नमस्ते रेड्डी-महोदय !
Thanks for your comment.
I firmly believe that any language should be learnt by first learning the script in which much of its literature is available.
I thought that people interested in learning Sanskrit would anyway first learn देवनागरी script.
But, maybe, I should add a lesson on देवनागरी script by way of introduction.
Respected Sri Abhyankar, you are doing a great service! Congratulations!
I am not able to find stem word for ततः (meaning: from there ) . Is this pronoun or is this indeclinable ?. Can you please guide me
नमस्ते श्रीमन् रमणमूर्ति-महोदय !
ततः is indeclinable, though one can see a suffix तः there, especially when considering it as a part of set of words अतः, यतः, इतः, ततः, कुतः
Namaskar Sri Abhyankar Mahodayah. Pranam. You site is excellent. Thank you so very much for giving your valuable time to create this Sanskrit learning website. It’s very useful. Hare Krishna!
I know little bit of hindi, I can easily understand this topic. I am deeply interested in learning the mother of all languages. It will be highly useful if the pronunciation is also given in English language. I am extremely grateful to your kind self for the lesson in sanskrit.
With high regards
नमस्ते श्रीमन् पोन्नुरंगम्-महोदय !
Even a Mexican, who recently posted his first Sanskrit verse to a Google-group mentioned that learning of any language should start with learning the script in which most of its literature is available.
I have known children having Tamil as their mother tongue, speaking in Tamil at home 24×7, yet not being able to read Tamil are totally deprived of the pleasure of Tamil literature. And that is so with many children who are born of Indian parents who settled abroad. Every Indian language has rich literary treasures. All those treasures cannot be Romanized. That need not be done also. That would be wasteful effort. People should rather learn the scripts instead of expecting that all literature be presented to them Romanized.

Valuable information. Fortunate me I found your site by accident, and I am shocked why this accident didn’t happened in advance! I bookmarked it.
My exact sentiments. I’ve been studying Sanskrit for the past year, but because I do not know Hindi, and therefore has to learn it through the English medium, it has been a formidable challenge, but a rewarding one. My father taught us the Devanagri script when we were kids, but he passed on many decades ago. So reading the Sanskrit and Hindi words are easy, but understanding them are difficult for me. I can’t believe how wonderful, simple, detailed, and fun Sri Slabhyankar has made this language on a simple blog site. Much appreciated and much Blessings to you Sir
1) Gender= Masculine
word बाल = boy
Plural = बालाः
word बाला= girl
Dual = बाले
Plural = बालाः
If above are correct, below is my qeustion
Question: The word “बालाः ” means both boys and girls . Which one to take in a sentence?
Good question ! Since बालाः is plural for both masculine and feminine, it is to be taken masculine or feminine according to context. If it is a group of both boys and girls, then, according to concepts of grammar, the word is to be taken as masculine.
Pranamam Abhyankarji. I thought of learning Samskritam to understand Bhagavad Gita and ended up finding your lessons. So easy to understand and a million thanks for this good deed.
I am learning Sanskrit from 3 years. Its so easy and no difficult to understand.
Koti Pranams to you Sirji for this wonderful way of teaching Sanskrit. Is there anyway I can download all the lessons, would love to do so. Thank you very much.
Since you have gmail-ID, you can open your Drive and copy-paste each lesson as a Google-document. Each lesson is accessible independently from the menu bar.
Another method would be to print the lesson as a pdf file
Thanks for your effort. Very Good !
Could you please add an index page and also a search option to return matching searches on each page and also in the whole material.
नमस्ते श्रीमन् भास्कर-महोदय !
I have not given titles to the lessons on purpose, thinking that people should be able to review in their own mind, what they learn in a particular chapter and should prepare an index, based on their comprehension. So preparing the index is intended to be a home-work exercise !
Thank you for this wonderful method of teaching. Have been trying to learn Sanskrit online and this is a real good approach.

That’s really something extraordinary. It’s like thinking out of the box and producing this kind of excellent stuff in front of everybody. Really very impressive.
यह साइट वास्तव में बहुत शिक्षाप्रद और उपयोगी है | विशेष रूप से उन व्यक्तियों के लिए जो संस्कृत सीखना चाहते थे, लेकिन आगे नहीं बढ़ सके। इस साइट की मदद से, वे पुनः सीखने का प्रयास कर सकेंगे। अनेकानेक साधुवाद।।
Thanks a lot for such great content.
