Learn Sanskrit through Self Study
Interactive on-line lessons
"The series of twelve lessons is aimed at giving the student a reasonably good introduction to the language. The student will be able to frame sentences relating to daily activities in life and thus will gain enough confidence to converse in Sanskrit though with a smaller vocabulary to begin with. The structure of the lessons is quite different from that of lessons found in conventional Sanskrit primers. It is hoped that the twelve lessons would provide enough details for the student to understand the basic grammar of Sanskrit and sentence formation rules...An on-line Sanskrit dictionary is also included as well as the full text of the Bhagavadgita with concordances and word meanings."

Online Sanskrit Dictionary
"This is an attempt to build up a repository of Sanskrit words and meanings in a simple, easy-to-extend format. We hope you find it useful and also contribute in adding more words to the collection. Links to some of the famous on-line digitized dictionaries are given in the end."

It will eventually contain carefully edited and proofread editions of the whole corpus of Caitanya Vaisnava texts and many other important Sanskrit texts from other traditions and fields of study."
