The Online Sanskrit Course is a work in progress. Many students who would like to learn the Sanskrit language do not have an opportunity to do so. The hope is that this online course will help fill that gap.
Part 1 of the course will teach you the Devanagari script.
Part 2 will teach the Sandhi rules.
After that, we will see how it goes.
Part I: The Sanskrit Alphabet
