dhivya prabandham is the life line of SrIvasihNavas. It is very important for everyone of us to learn the same under those who have learned the same from elders. Please see full details about dhivya prabandham in http://divyaprabandham.koyil.org .

Due to many of us being located in various cities/towns these days, where one may not have the opportunity to learn directly from a teacher, we are providing opportunity to learn the same via Phone and Internet.

Resources relating to dhivya prabandham

General Recommendations for Participants

  • It is a great fortune for us to be engaged in learning the divine literature of AzhwArs and AchAryas. So, everyone is requested to develop that mood of gratitude towards AzhwArs and AchAryas for the great literature they have left behind especially for us.
  • Though one may be joining through phone or internet, one is requested to be wearing traditional clothes, wearing Urdhva puNdram and be in a clean environment.
  • Please use the resources available (books etc) and be prepared for the class.
  • Traditionally, most teachers would be seated on the floor, along with the students, while conducting the class. It is recommended that those who are learning through internet and phone also follow the same practice as much as possible.
  • Classes will generally be conducted in “Lecture mode” – meaning, only the teacher and the students who are physically present will be audible to everyone and all others joined through phone/internet will be muted while the class is conducted. At the end of the class, one may raise their doubts, questions etc.
  • Please try to be ready and prepared for the class 5 minutes before the start time.
  • Gather like minded devotees and try to learn as a group. This will be very helpful in memorizing the pAsurams quickly.
  • Please recite common thaniyans before the commencement of the class. thaniyans (with audio) are available at http://divyaprabandham.koyil.org/index.php/thaniyans-tamil/ . Same site holds thaniyans in other languages too.
  • The organizer of the classes will send details about cancellations etc ahead of time.
  • Some organizers may choose to upload recordings while others may not be doing so. One may make use of the recordings as a backup, if a class was missed.
  • The purpose of learning dhivya prabandham is to understand the devotional mood of AzhwArs and engage in reciting their pAsurams in the near by sannidhis (temples, mutts etc) and also at our own homes whenever possible. The key is to do all of these as kainkaryam, without any expectation from emperumAn as well as others.
  • Since regular practice makes it possible to remember what is learned, please plan/allocate this time of your day for attending the class regularly every day with full focus.
  • Please let your friends and relatives know about this program so that they would also be benefited.

samskrutham – introduction

srI:
srImallakshmInrsimha para bhramhaNE nama:
srImathE rAmAnujAya nama:
srImadh varavaramunayE nama:

Priya Bandho,

It gives me immense pleasure to be a part of the team who are interested in
developing the language Samskritam. Samskritam is one of the ancient languages.
The Indian culture and tradition are mainly rooted and established in this
language. The early texts namely the Vedas , Upanishads, Puranas , Itihasas etc.
are found in this language.

Further the greatness of this language has been accepted and honoured by the
whole world.

Why to learn (Sanskrit) Samskritam ?

  • To go to source granthas and have deeper perspective of the same.
  • To have a firsthand experience of the granthas composed by our PurvaAcharyas
  • To keep the thread connected to the forth coming generations of our sampradaya and works related to it.
  • To have a great joy in reading and understanding the granthams in original version as our purvas did.
  • To have a better understanding of the terminologies and concepts in the sampradaya.
  • To improve the pronunciation of the Mantras or Slokas for more benefits.
  • And many more….

Script
Language as such has two major uses. One is to speak and the other to read or
write. For speaking a language script is not essential. For reading and writing the
script plays a vital role. A language can be easily represented in various other
scripts.
For example – adiyen Ramanuja dasan Devarir samskritam katrukkolla iruppadu
romba nalla vishayam.
The Tamil sentence has been represented in English roman script. Still we can read
it and understand as we know Tamil also.
Thus a language has a concept called script and this is used for reading and writing
purposes. Sanskrit has various forms of representations in different scripts. A few
worth mentioning here are Devanagari, Nandi nagari, sharada granthakshara etc.
The grantha script mainly developed in the dravidadesha.
The script we use is Devanagari which is widely used by majority of people who use
samskritam.
Scheme of work

  • Firstly the alphabet will be introduced and by regular practice the way of
  • writing and the form written have to be registered.
  • Pronunciation of individual letters and combined letters
  • Formation of small words
  • Different types of words (Parts of speech)
  • Rules of Sandhi
  • Declension of nouns
  • Tenses and moods
  • Conjugation of verbs
  • Syntax
  • Compounds

Lessons will be prepared based on the above concepts and posted in regular
intervals. As much as possible the explanations and examples will be derived based
on the sampradaya granthas.
Sessions will be there to clear the doubts and to provide clarity in the concepts.
External links will also be suggested. Regular worksheets will be given and
occasional tests will also be conducted.

Outcome of learning Samskritam

  • One becomes better by learning samskritam
  • Due to the proper pronunciation of the letters positive vibrations take place
  • Listening to upanyasams of the adhikaris will be more pleasurable.
  • Daily puja rituals will be made more meaningful.
  • Atmatrupti

These are some points mentioned here and many more adhrishta phalas are there
which will be reaped by the readers time to time.
The next phase will be the alphabet introduction that is the aksharamala.
