The Mother's messages on Sanskrit are the source of inspiration for this research publication. The method introduced here is the outcome of a long period of teaching and experiment. It is based on the following guidelines of the Mother:
1. "For common use I was thinking of a simplified Sanskrit from the grammatical point of view." 8 March 1968
2. "The old method of teaching is obviously outdated and will be gradually abandoned throughout the world." (MCW 12:182)
3. "Visual memory is more useful than mental memory." (MCW 12:326)
4. "A language is precisely the thing that should have the most life, the most life! And in order for it to have some life, the students have to participate. They should not be ears listening and sitting on a bench!" (MCW 12:421)
As advised by Sri Aurobindo in his essay A System of National Education (SABCL 17:203), we have tried our best to make these lessons "natural, easy and effective" and "without the evils of strain and cramming".
After studying this book, readers should read as a follow-up study.
