Knowledge alone can give us a sense of detachment, without which life is a bondage and freedom only a dream.

Advanced Sanskrit Postal Course


The Advanced Postal Sanskrit Course is open to anyone interested in learning the language. Designed to facilitate learning through correspondence, the Course aims to impart to students an elementary knowledge of Sanskrit, using English as the medium of instruction. On successful completion of the course, students will be awarded a course completion certificate.


The course comprises 40 lessons to be covered at the rate of 2 lessons a month. Total duration of 20 months is required for the completion of the course. However, depending on the entry-level capability and aptitude of a student, the course plan can be modified to suit specific skill sets. Once the registration modalities have been completed, CIF will mail the lessons to the students by ordinary mail.

Each lesson contains a set of exercises, which students are expected to complete. The student is then required to mail his/her completed lesson for assessment by the Tutor.

Receipt of the next set of lessons by the student will depend on the speed of his response in sending back the answer sheets. Able and enthusiastic students can thus complete the course in shorter duration as well.
