Back of The Book

Sanskrit is the store-house of the entire knowledge of ancient India. All the branches of that knowledge viz, spiritual, scientific ritual and mundane can be mastered only by a through mastery over the Sanskrit language and its grammar. Most of the Indians who are good in their languages borrow many Sanskrit background because their languages borrow many Sanskirt words. Various expressions and ideas in different Indian literatures are generally borrowed from Sanskirt works. Thus some basic Sanskirt is quite familiar to most of the Indian. Yet, they feel terrified at the prospect of learning Sanskirt. It need not be so. To understand and enjoy works like the Bhagavagita, the Ramayana the Mahabharata and the poems of Kalidasa etc., a working knowledge of Sanskirt is more than sufficient and it is easy to gain that much. With a little effort and perseverance one can gain entry into the realms of Sanskrit world. Now, in this attempt, Sanskrit language is taught through the verses of Bhajagovindam. The work is very small. It contains only 33 verses. It is hoped that the sincere spiritual aspirant takes the work seriously. It is declared by elders that one with true determination obtains true wisdom.

 

Introduction

Sanskrit is the store- house of the entire knowledge of ancient India. All the branches of that knowledge viz., spiritual, scientific ritual and mundane can be mastered only by a thorough mastery over the Sanskrit language and its grammar.

Various expressions and ideas in different Indian literatures are generally borrowed from Sanskirt is quite familiar to most of the Indians .yet they feel terrified at the prospect of learning Sanskirt. It need not be so. It is true that to understand a Bharavi or the Bhashyas of the commentators a thorough knowledge of Sanskrit language and its grammar is a must. But to understand and enjoy works like the Bhagavadgita, the Ramayana the Mahabharata and the poem of Kalidasa etc., a working knowledge of Sanskirt is more than sufficient and it is easy to gain that much. With a little effort and perseverance, one can gain entry into the realms of Sanskirt word. It is said that one can become a pundit by a thorough knowledge of a mere hundred verses.

Now, in this attempt Sanskrit language is taught through the verse of Bhajagovindam. The world-teacher, Adisankara, intent upon rescuing the common man (who is) getting drowned in the ocean of ignorance and worldliness, composed this work. He named this work as Mohamudgara Mace (capable of destroying) to the Delusion. The work is very small. It contains only 33 verses. Even among these few verses tradition holds that only the first 12 verses are the original composition of the grate sage and that the rest were penned by his disciples.

Adisankara Skillfully infuses spiritual knowledge into the reader through these verse stuffed with practical examples which bring out the profound truths of the highest wisdom. The work is a succinct essay on Advaita. Philosophy. If one imbibes the wisdom crammed into this small work and puts it into practice he is sure to enjoy mental peace and spiritual bliss as is promised in this work. It is hoped that the sincere spiritual aspirant takes the work seriously. It is declared by elders that one with true determination obtains true wisdom
