We are happy to make available the Key to Sanskrit Manual of R. Antoine S.J. prepared by ‘Samvid’ to the public. The Sanskrit Manual in two parts by R. Antonie S.J. has been serving the needs of students and general public alike who wish to learn Sanskrit. Its method of treating a few topice together in a lesson, and not restricting each lesson to the discussion of a specific topic help the learners to learn the language in an easy and comprehensible way. The passages for exercises are adequate and the treatment simple, within the reach of modern Indian student for whom Sanskrit may be a third language or language of option. The number of reprints the book has seen, itself vouchsafes to its popularity and adequacy.
With senior professionals and corporate members, who are hard pressed for time evincing interest in learning sanskrit, it is felt that a Key to the Sanskrit Manual will be very helpful to them.
‘Samvid’ who has his hands on the pulse of management training and who has translated such Sanskrit works as ‘Tripurarahasya’ ‘Prabodha Sudhakara’ and has authored ‘The Essence of Yogavasistha’ had already prepared the Key and was sharing it with his fellow learners. He lent the copy of the same to the Sanskrit Academy to publish it for the benefit of all sanskrit lovers. We thank him for the same.
A few additions like type casting conjunct consonants have been made by us and these have been indicated in the Notes. All references to the Text are to the 2002 Edition of the “Sanskrit Manual” (Pts. I&II)
The Academy has been publishing grammar books and text books for High School and Higher Secondary schools. This Key is a welcome new addition in the series.
In this revised edition we have taken into account the suggestions and corrections given by some of the users. Accordingly the entire work had been scrutinised again and necessary corrections have been made.
Thanks are due to Mr. Venketesh of Chengamalam Enterprises for Laser Typeset and M/s. Sri Harish Printers for the nice get-up.
We hope this book will find favour with Sanskrit learners and lovers alike.
