82-piaski-krolewskie-dolina-slonca129-piaski-krolewskie-dolina-sloncaPragniemy poinformować, że z powodu nieco większej niż oczekiwaliśmy liczby zgłoszeń, zdecydowaliśmy się zmienić miejsce kursu i przenieść całą imprezę do pobliskiego ośrodka szkoleniowo-rekreacyjnego. Ośrodek nazywa się „Dolina Słońca” i położony jest w lesie, w puszczy Kampinoskiej, w miejscowości Piaski Królewskie. Nocleg wraz z całodziennym wyżywieniem kosztuje 80 zł. Pokoje są dwuosobowe – z możliwością wynajęcia przez jedną osobę bez dopłaty.

Kto chce przyjechać z własnym namiotem – za dobę opłata wynosi 10 zł, a za wyżywienie – 40 zł. Kierownictwo „Doliny Słońca” nie wymaga z góry żadnych zaliczek, wiec opłatę za pobyt można będzie uiścić po przyjeździe, w momencie rozpoczęcia kursu. Sam kurs jest bezpłatny.

The Wonder that is Sanskrit

 

 A Five day Sanskrit Learning Workshop in Secymin Nowy, Poland

The workshop will seek to provide an acquaintance with the various dimensions of Sanskrit’s personality. This workshop is open to all, but there will be a cap on the maximum number of participants.


Some Gems about Sanskrit:

For those who have not had an opportunity to go through the book ‘The Wonder that is Sanskrit’ by Dr Sampadananda Mishra, here are some gems from it. Most of these will be elaborated in the workshop.

  • The sounds forming the roots of all Sanskrit words have an intrinsic meaning (rather than being merely historical conventions) eg, the word ‘shanti’ conveys peaceful sound vibrations! In regard to not only ‘Om’, but to all Sanskrit words the Sound and the Word are seen as being at the origin of creation.
  • Even the word-pictures of the Sanskrit/ Devanagri alphabets have been designed according to their meaning.
  • All verbs, and most nouns, are composed of verb-roots and based on rules regarding appendages. Familiarity with 700 basic verb roots, 20 commonly-used prefixes, together with these rules, gives a substantial command over the language. Combinations into words/ sentences are done in a way that imparts a fluidity/ melody.
  • There are many synonyms, often as many as 10-30, with different shades of meaning … shades are often not translatable into English ‘equivalents’
  • Flexibility of structure … e.g., words in a sentence can be re-arranged without changing the meaning
  • Researchers in computer have found that Sanskrit is an ideal “natural language” for computers in many ways
  • Sanskrit is a linguistic base to many different languages, Indian and European, so a familiarity will help us to easily connect to many Indian languages
  • Sanskrit is also called Devbhasha or language of the Gods or a Divine language. The word ‘Sanskrit’ means ‘refined’ or ‘sculpted to perfection’. India has more than hundreds of spoken dialects, but Sanskrit is the oldest, most continually used language in the world, at least since 1500 BC, perhaps since 6000 BC. It “has the power to lift us up above ourselves – it is a potent aid to the formation of character and sense of exaltation”.

An appreciation of the above nuances has the potential to open one to the mantric quality of Sanskrit, to the nuances of key Sanskrit words/ concepts, to the interconnections between Indian languages, and to a deeper engagement with vast ranges of the spiritual and other literature in Sanskrit
