The manifest sound of creation is the Mother of all things, having 50 śaktis that she wears as a garland of the Sanskrit syllables...this Mother is the source of all mantras, the origin of all sciences, and the soil from which all the principles, all sages, and all knowledge are born. ~ Śrī Lakṣmī Tantra 20:31,52
The hard way was how I learned Sanskrit in graduate school—as a dead, classical language. Sanskrit was something to be obtained "out there," in books.
The fun way is how it's been taught orally from teacher to student for thousands of years—as a chanting practice leading to awakening higher states of consciousness. Chanting Sanskrit is a way of uncovering your own natural intelligence "in here," within your nervous system.
After spending agonizing years with my head stuck in thick books of grammar & dictionaries, I discovered a much easier—and yet deeply transformative—method of learning Sanskrit. As my Vedic teacher explained, "I sit. You sit. I chant. You listen & repeat." It's how the Vedas (the teachings of enlightenement) have been passed down since the dawn of time. This is adhyāyānam—the living transmission that leads to the awakening of knowledge within your own nervous system.
And that can be hard to find.
I know. I struggled to find an authentic teacher of Vedic Sanskrit for years.
But you don't have to.

Each time we chanted together a feeling of wholeness, peace, and deep connection would manifest. Dr. Katy beautifully describes this process of attuning with nature and with the whole universe through chanting the Sanskrit alphabet! In this course we further immersed ourselves in reading devanāgarī, chanting the Vedas according to the rules of the tradition, and profound experiences of meditation. I was hooked!" ~ Margo Sorum
Who would have guessed that a country hippie girl who grew up in Nebraska would end up geeking out on this vibrational 'language'? It all comes down to that—vibration. And Sanskrit is the key to understanding how we are all connected through vibration." ~ Mindy Arbuckle
This became—and still is—my "go to" practice. I started transliterating Sanskrit texts from devanagari to English alphabet using IAST. It was commitment to this as a practice that enabled me to actually read my favorite Sanskrit scriptures. The process of transliterating and repetitive chanting from that, instilled the meaning of the texts on a deep, subconscious level. It has become an essential part of my life. I give complete credit to the way I learned from Dr. Katy & Sanskrit for Yogis." ~ Francesca Jackson
