Namaste.

My passion and exposure to Sanskrit started from my school days. I use my analytical and teaching skills to present Sanskrit in a way that is easy to understand, interesting to absorb, and enlightening for living a better life in big and small ways.

I started PracticalSanskrit blog (over 4 million views) and Facebook page (over 35,000 followers) to share whatever I learned from Sanskrit works and how it helped me in life. Always bringing the relevance of it for modern times, because knowledge that can't be used is a burden we carry. This learning site is my latest attempt to share not just via text, but video and audio, providing a better learning opportunity.

Most of our problems are caused by our way of thinking which reflects in our way of studying, working, relationship, parenting, managing, leadership, behavior, motivation and inspiration.

Sanskrit works have almost every aspects of human thought and mind covered in its vast literature. Hence my mission - "Ancient Wisdom. Modern Times." - Find help for today's problems with the wisdom of the ages!
I welcome you  and wish you a fruitful and joyful journey of learning here.
