Introduction

“Sanskrit language, as has been universally recognized by those competent to form a judgment, is one of the most magnificent, the most perfect, the most prominent and wonderfully sufficient literary instrument developed by the human mind.”—Sri Aurobindo

Learning a language is always fascinating. And even more fascinating is learning Sanskrit. Sanskrit, as many conscious learners have experienced, generates joy, clarity, purity and peace. It is indeed a perfect harmonizer that harmonizes the body, mind and soul. 

The most practical value of learning Sanskrit lies in the fact that it trains the mind to think logically, brings clarity of expression, develops intellectual strength and provides keen insight into the meanings of the words. The vibrational quality of Sanskrit has a direct impact on the functioning of the brain, and can help in enhancing memory and the ability to concentrate. Moreover, the language helps in the growth of consciousness and has immense power in bringing a greater transformation. 

Keeping the above ideal in mind, SAFIC is organizing an intensive workshop on Sanskrit for beginners, titled ‘SPANDANA: Feeling the Pulsation of a Divine Language’, from January 20 to 26, 2019, at the Sri Aurobindo Society, Puducherry. This workshop will give the participants an opportunity to come in contact with this beautiful language in a most natural way through songs, chanting, conversation, activities, games and presentations.
