This is a high-level reading course in Sanskrit literature. The four-year Sanskrit program is designed to introduce students to the broadest possible range of literary genres, including epic, courtly poetry, drama, Upani?adic verse and sutras This course will introduce final-year students to the the early Vedic dialetc, the precursor of Classical Sanskrit. The thousands hymns of the ?gveda are the oldest literary works in any Indo-european language and have laid at the heart of Indic religious beliefs and practices for at least four millennia. The language of the Vedas is difficult and often obscure, yet reveals a startling world that sometimes resembles and sometimes challenges our own. This course is an introduction to the language, thought and practices of the Vedic thought-world through a dozen selected hymns
