Sanskrit Study Weekend

Sanskrita and sun

Sanskrit Weekend — 15th and 16th February 2020

The Aṣṭāvakra Gītā is a short treatise presenting succinctly the essence of Advaita philosophy. Penetration into the meaning of the text is challenging, but having recourse to the original Sanskrit verses is both illuminating and rewarding.

During the Sanskrit Study Weekend on the 15th and 16th February, students will see some inspiring videos of Svami Sarvapriyananda in which he explains the practical implications of a few key verses. We will consider the words both in English and Sanskrit and take time to discuss their meaning. Time will also be available for quiet reflection on the verses.

No experience of Sanskrit is necessary.

Students are invited to attend one or both study days on the weekend, which will take place in the friendly and restful environment of Brinscall Hall.

All students are welcome and interested friends are welcome as day-attendees. Overnight accommodation is available to students who have previously attended a Philosophy residential.

Each study day will begin at 9.00 am, with refreshments available from 8.30 am, and will finish at 4.00 pm. Lunch is provided and the daily charge is £20. Accommodation is available on Friday and Saturday at an additional cost of £15 per night.

You can book a place for the Sanskrit Study Days on Eventbrite here.  N.B. Please ask your Philosophy Tutor for the password to enable you to book for the event.

Bookings will close on the Wednesday 12th February. Please indicate any special dietary requirements when you book a place.

We look forward to hearing from you and we hope you are able to join us over the weekend. If you have any queries please e-mail practphil.nw@gmail.com
