Shri Shankaracharya Sanskrit Mahavidyalaya
Bhavan's Founder President

If Patashalas and universities make a point of using the direct method in teaching Sanskrit throughout the course and of making its beautiful literature accessible to the students before the grammar and compound rules make their life miserable, the popularity of Sanskrit will grow. That is what we want easy spoken Sanskrit, spoken as it is by many pandits, particularly in south, with the elasticity of expression which equals that of the advanced languages of the modern world. Through that medium, it should be our aim to familiarize the country with the best in the Sanskrit language, and no other language can be better than this. Thus only will Sanskrit be kept alive.

Dr. K. M. Munshi

Of all the equipment you can hope to acquire here, nothing will be more useful than the study of Sanskrit. If you cannot read it ,read the translations in English or Hindi or any other language that you know. It will make you a member of the great spiritual community to which the greatest men of our race belonged, and give you a capacity for universals understanding.

Dr. K. M. Munshi


Contrary to common belief, Sanskrit is an easy language to learn, particularly for an Indian. Whatever may be this mother language, an Indian comes in contact with this language from his early childhood. It is, therefore, not difficult at all for him to learn it.

Keeping this in mind, Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan has brought out an eleven-book series of graded lessons in Saral Sanskrit Sihksha is published according to the syllabus prepared in 1959 by a Committee of eminent educationists constituted by Sanskrit Vishwa Parishad, which was inaugurated on the momentous occasion of the renovation ceremony of the Somnath Temple in 1951, when the Sardar Patel, Dr. Rajendra Prasad, Shri K.M.Munshi and Shri U. N. Dhebar were present. The series enable the learning of Sanskrit with the help of small simple sentences. Again, a student generally finds it difficult with Sanskrit Grammar. But, it is not so with the aid of Saral Sanskrit books. The construction of sentences in these books has been designed in such a way that various verb-forms can be easily grasped. Thus, when a student reads these books he understands the meaning of words with ease and is able to make sentences of his own, discovering in the process that Sanskrit is an easy language.
