Introducing Buddhist Sanskrit

This introductory course is meant for the ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS. Students will be introduced to the Sanskrit Devanagari alphabets and basic Sanskrit grammar required for reading simple Buddhist passages. The focus of this course will be to familiarize students with the basic Buddhist terminologies and simple sentences in the Buddhist Sanskrit Sūtras. At the end of the course, students are expected to be able to read simple Sanskrit passages. This course serves as a good preparation for the Reading Buddhist Sanskrit Texts I & II (ME 68) in the Master of Arts in Buddhist Studies programme.
