If you have practiced yoga meditation for some time, or are interested in the literature of India, it is very helpful for one to be able to read the Sanskrit script.
It is not easy to learn it by oneself from books, and therefore I have prepared an audio tape with several charts to facilitate the process. Actually, it is not as hard as it seems. If you spend 45 minutes a day learning it, in 2 &endash; 3 weeks you will have mastered the basic 49 signs and sounds of the Sanskrit alphabet.
At the Rishikesh Foundation, we have weekly Sanskrit classes for beginners.
If you are unable to attend our classes, but would at least like to learn the Sanskrit script, you can now order the tape 'SANSKRIT ALPHABET' by sending a $ 15 donation to:
10545 Main Street
Clarence, New York 14031 (USA)
Attn.: John Zavrel
You will find this to be a very rewarding experience, which may be also helpful in your future meditation practice.
