Student, Sasyam 2

Joining Arsha Seva Kendram’s Sasyam entry level spoken Samskritam class was truly a blessing. I was able to study at my own pace. Weekly homework helped me learn thoroughly. Online classes, videos and documents boosted my confidence. Samskritam is definitely an easy language to learn. Thank you Arsha Seva Kendram and teachers Jayakumar ji and Haripriya ji.


I started studying Sanskrit with ASK by attending the Sasyam class. Even though I started the class with no prior knowledge, the lessons taught by Jayakumarji and Haripriyaji has helped me in obtaining a strong foundation and also motivated me to continue learning Sanskrit. I have thoroughly enjoyed attending the classes.

I had never studied Sanskrit, but had a desire to learn. I was really skeptical. But the well-paced & organized classes, along with the repeated practice with the well placed assignments and weekly interactions, made me pick it up really well. If one is serious about getting into Sanskrit and enjoying its beauty, it is worth devoting few hours per week for this year long course.
