That familiar tug…

19 Apr

I’ve hit one of those phases where I am dying to learn something new, constructive and not time-consuming. In fact, one of the things that  I love about blogging, is the level of introspection that is enabled through the act.It is a constant reminder of visiting new places, experimenting with new recipes, learning to photograph using the DSLR (from the Mister), learning to read Sanskrit(I am only now learning to identify the letters), practicing a greener lifestyle. I hope to be inspired by my readers.  If you have suggestions for me, please leave them in comments!

    Sanskrit has fascinated thinkers in all parts of the globe for centuries. The structure of the language has provided rare insight in the field of communication to top NASA scientists. It is a language nobody can master but anyone can use with great liberty!!

    Language learning is one of the ways of keeping alive the spirit of youth. Sanskrit opens the key to several Indian and even European languages. The oldest text of the world is in Sanskrit. One little-known fact is that Sanskrit is so highly malleable that one can form words independently.

    Learning Sanskrit is exciting. Repeatedly we encounter known words, and we tell ourselves ” so this is the root and this is how the sense is derived.” No one can master the language, but even a novice can coin words and compose verses!

    I found this holy Geeta app (android app) which is SUPER cool. If you want to add it to one of your learning tasks (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rudhratek.holygeeta&hl=en).
    It has Chinmayananda ‘s commentaries which I am finding a little bit easier than ISKCON. The sloka also comes up as a chant (the version we are all familiar with).

    Funny, I just typed a comment and it disappeared!!
    I am saying it again. I found this holy Geeta app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rudhratek.holygeeta&hl=en)
    that is SUPER COOL. It has Chinmayananda ‘s commentaries which I am finding it slightly easier than the ISKCON version. Just wanted to suggest another task (not so time consuming) (since you asked for suggestions 🙂

    Nice blog by the way!!

      Nice suggestion! I checked it out but mine is a Windows 7 phone. There doesn’t seem to be any good apps. But it is something to learn from my computer atleast.
