12:30 PM-2:00 PM
The second year instruction in the study of Sanskrit builds directly on the grammatical, lexicographical and semantic foundation, given in the First Year course. The main difference from the previous instruction, is the introduction to reading actual Sanskrit texts from a Reader. The Reader has selections from the Mahabharata, the Hitopadesa, the Laws of Manu, etc. The handy glossary and copious notes are instructive and make the first steps of reading easy. The study of grammar syntax is based on the reading material. The students will be responsible for the preparation of the reading passages studied in class.
