The Sanskrit language in many parts of the world is a new element in today's education. It is an ideal study for the young because its systematic grammar orders the student's mind. At the same time, Sanskrit literature provides the student with an exciting and profound interaction with a classical culture.
Stories from the Mahabharata, a new series of Sanskrit textbooks, retells the epic 'Mahabharata' in simple Sanskrit episodes which gradually develop a students knowledge of grammar. In each chapter a theme which appears in the Sanskrit epics is also discussed. It is suggested that students should have completed the preceding sections of this course, Sanskrit is Fun (Parts 1, 2 and 3), The Stories of Krishna (Parts 1 and 2), and The Story of Rama (Parts 1 and 2) before starting these books.
In this volume (Stories from the Mahabharata, Part One) basic noun and verbs forms are revised. New topics introduced include complementary sentences, question words, indefinite expressions, relationship nouns and passive verbs. There are also three crossword puzzles testing grammar and vocabulary.
