Sanskrit offers pupils a superb grammatical training and inspirational literature. It resonates strongly with our philosophically inspired approach which also includes meditation.

  2. Hello,

    I am looking for a Sanskrit teacher to translate a phrase for me. Do you know anyone in London who can help?

    Many thanks,



    • Dear Raghavendra, if you are thinking of St. James, you must postulate there. As for Universities and other research institutes in Europe, there are not that many positions, unfortunately, and in any case, one must write an application whenever one is advertised. If you have a PhD, you can try with the one currently advertised at the Vienna University. Best of luck!
