Sanskrit

24.1.11


So, I'm in the mist of finally buckling down and learning Sanskrit, and I must say I'm really enjoying it. Actually, my favorite part is writing the letters, and formulating words on paper. There is something extremely meditative about it. I can't say I really have any particular goal in learning this ancient language, except to say it is fascinating in many ways. One being, that it is vibrational in nature. The sounds we formulate in Sanskrit reverberate in our being if used over time.  Obviously, I am only at the very basic level of learning, and I can see the value in building my understanding slowly through time. Good stuff, indeed.

I've read some stuff in my science / energy books that says the pattern vibrations formed by sanskrit vowels are actually the shape of the words. This is not the case with modern languages!

I think that was somewhere in The Subtle Body Encyclopedia...

Totally! You said it better than I. Energetically there is really something to it. For sure.

Hey Laruga, do you mind me asking how are you learning Sanskrit, from a book, teacher ? I'm really interested in learning myself and wondering where is a good place to start. I looked into it before and the American Sanskrit Institute have home courses which look great but a bit expensive. Hope you're enjoying it :) Thanks, Niall.
