Introduction to Sanskrit

INTRODUCTION TO SANSKRIT
Waterperry House and Online

The Absolute is not unknowable, nor imperceptible, for It shines of Itself. It is

known as real, conscious and limitless.

This weekend is offered as an introduction to Sanskrit with study led by Warwick
Jessup centred on ‘Self Discovery’, a text recently translated from Sanskrit. There will
be recitation and more detailed study of one verse with particular reference to key
Sanskrit words. Those having prior experience of Sanskrit are also welcome. The
weekend will take place at Waterperry House near Wheatley in Oxfordshire. Some
meetings will also be available for participants online.
