  • अष्टाध्यायीसूत्रपाठः [aṣṭādhyāyīsūtrapāṭhaḥ]

In a "user-friendly, stress-free" format.
While studying and teaching the Panini grammar, I have witnessed enough unnecessary stress in using existing books because of user-unfriendly presentation, poor quality of the paper, etc.
I tried to improve in formatting this very important reference book.
I also include all the वार्तिक and परिभाषा which are required in studying of लघुसिद्धान्तकौमुदी.

Released by Pujya Swamiji (Sri Dayananda Sarasvati) on Gurupurnima day 2013.

Available in:
Rishikesh Ashram, AVG Anaikkatti, and AVG Saylorsburg.

  • धातुपाठः [dhātupāṭhaḥ]

This handy reference book contains:
1. Glossary of roots in alphabetical order – with meanings in English
2. Classification of roots - ten conjugations and groups within the conjugations like dyutādi – with appropriate sūtras and examples
3. Glossary of roots with prefixes – with meanings in English
4. Significance of indicatory letters attached to roots – with appropriate sūtras and examples

I have been still working on improvement on this.
Especially improving the English translation according to Pujya Swamiji's English.

    • Grammatical Points on दक्षिणामूर्तिस्तोत्रम् with ध्यानश्लोकाः


    Based on Pujya Swamiji's lecture.
    Not only पदच्छेदः, विभक्तिः, अन्वयः, word-by-word  running translation, but also व्युत्पत्तिः of each single word, including ब्रह्म, आत्मा, शिष्य, etc. are described with Panini Sutras.
    धातु, प्रत्यय, विग्रहवाक्य of समास etc, are found in step by step.

    Now under proofreading.
    Let me know if you are interested in seeing the book.



    • Sanskrit for Vedanta Students Volume 1 -  Nouns (सुबन्तम्), Verbs (तिङन्तम्), कारकम्, विभक्तिः
    • Sanskrit for Vedanta Students - Sandhi Handbook
    • Sanskrit for Vedanta Students Volume 2 - पञ्चवृत्तयः
    • Sanskrit for Vedanta Students Volume 3 - Introduction to पाणिनिसूत्राणि


    Improved version of Antoine. Compare to Antoine 1 & 2, what are;
    Removed - misleading terminology, confusing explanation, "secular" vocabulary, orders in disorder
    Kept - Simplicity
    Added - easy-to-grasp charts, exercises which make you think step by step 

    Volume 1 is about alphabet, verbs and nouns, कारक and विभक्ति.
    Exercise book helps you to grasp syntactical structure of the Sanskrit language, which builds the ability to read.
    After completing the Volume 1, one can proceed comfortably to Panini grammar.

    Volume 2 is about सनादि, कृत्, तद्धित प्रत्ययs and समास.
    Some time after entering Panini grammar, Volume 2 can be studied.

    Volume 3 is all about Sandhi in one place, with charts and maps so that one can visually and easily grasp the rules. Comes with lots of examples which are found in the Shaastras.

    I am working on this

    2. Respected Medhaji,

      I am enjoying very much your books "Sanskrit for Vedanta Students". I was wondering if you have answers to the exercises given in Volume 1. If so could you please email them to me at ksinghal@ieee.org. I have been a student of Pujya Swami Dayanandaji for many years and taught a basic Sanskrit course (I have been a looking for a Sanskrit text book to use. Your book is very helpful, useful and very well written. Thank you!)
