What we covered during the Vyoma Sanskrit Tour ?
‘One of its kind’ Lecture demonstrations to answer two questions – Why Sanskrit and How Sanskrit?
If we want to experience the ‘Power of Sanskrit’ through activities, anecdotes and research-based content, this is the best method.
Interactive lecture demonstration, which details each power of Sanskrit and attempts to answer the golden question, ‘why should we learn Sanskrit’.
Live demonstration of Vyoma Sanskrit tools would be performed to show ‘how we can learn Sanskrit’, in the most interactive and fun based way.
A generic ‘learning pathway’ would be shared which can demystify the process of learning Sanskrit.

Fun filled, Shloka & Sanskrit classes
Can we make our Sanskrit class really fun, with games (online and physical); Sanskrit rhymes with actions; making Rāmāyaṇa charts; singing and dancing for bhajans; playing antyakshari with Shlokas; and listening to interesting stories.
These classes can be experienced by children of all ages (including elders who are ‘child at heart’ J)
These classes would also involve using of Vyoma games and activities
Theme based Upanyasam were performed, on various interesting aspects of SundaraKandam of śrīmadvālmīkirāmāyaṇam (Srimad-Valmiki-Ramayanam).
For eg: Leadership principles from sundarakāṇḍa (Sundara-Kandam); Finance & Auditing principles from SundaraKandam; Stress management through Sundara Kandam; Values for Children from Sundarakadam etc.
Focused Grantha based discussions
We all have heard the maxim – Shatha-shlokena panditaha i.e (scholar through 100 shlokas). If we are wondering how is this possible, we can take any one grantha and follow this ‘scholar-defined’ approach for studying Sanskrit granthas.
This involves reading the shloka, splitting of words, prose order, word-by-word meaning, analysis of every word for last detail, looking at sandhis and samasa, other pratyayas, chandas, alankara and vishesha tippanis.
Parayanam and Poojas at your home or your apartment
Praying for world-peace and lokakshema; we conducted parāyaṇaṃ of granthas like Devi Saptashathi; sundarakāṇḍa (Sundara-Kandam), etc; performed poojas like Sathyanarayana pooja, deepa pooja, etc., and homams like Ganapathi homam, etc.
Sanskrit Grammar workshops
Focused grammar workshops in Sanskrit or English guiding learners on how to approach specific topics like ‘How to study ‘Sanskrit Samāsa’, How to study ‘Sanskrit Chandas’, etc.
