Re-Starting Online Classes.

It occurs to me that I would like to re-start my online/on-phone/on e-mail classes, on subjects relating to the sort of things I write about here on Ancient Indians.

These are paid classes. (No free ones I am afraid – Lots of people offer free classes online and in person so you can join those if you are a little short of cash!).

Bandwidth supports only 1-4 students per batch, maybe not even that many, so you may be the only student in class.

I would like to start with these three, for the simple reason that the ‘lecture notes’/text-book is already available here :

You are also more than welcome to download these for free and do a self-study if you like.

The emphasis is on meaning and chanting/reading will be taught only on request.

Bunking classes and showing up late is neither tolerated nor allowed.

Commitment is required.

That said, we can negotiate the times.

Leave a comment or send me an e-mail if you are interested.

I tend to advaita and draw from s’ankarAcArya.

Ancient Indians University (eGurukula): Update : Congrats Radhika!

Congratulations to Radhika Kiranmayi, for completing 5 chapters of Bhagavad Gita Yesterday at AIU.

It has been a rather joyous journey for both of us understanding Krishna’s words and ideas.

We have done Chapters 12, 15, 2, 3 and 4. It is her quick grasp, regularity, punctuality,  trust and accommodating nature that has helped us cover so much ground in so much depth in just a few months.

Congratulations to Guillermo, for learning how to read and chant the Gita slokas on his own.

The notes are fine (he IS a musician after all), and the pronunciation is so much more according to Panini now than when we started.

Welcome to Lasya for her Upanishad Classes.

She demonstrates so much s’raddhaa, inspite of the myriad and incessant demands on a gruhini, it is a joy to teach her and have her at AIU.

Welcome to Vaishnavi.

She has an uncanny ability and predisposition to Vedas, Upanishads and of course her favorite Bhagavad Gita, for one so young.. it makes me wonder who she was in her previous birth. She attends whichever class her schedule permits and it is fun to teach her.

Farewell to Srinivas NLR.

His busy schedule as well his concerns about Vedas not being meant for women have led to his dropping the courses at AIU.

Hope to see you back soon!  to the vacationing students, Dileep, Lavanya, Lakshmi and Chaitanya.

Seeking Krishna’s blessings for potential students, Phaneendra, Krishna, Nalini and Priya and Rahmanuddin. May our classes go well. May we attain enlightenment together.

Ancient Indians — eGurukula

Actually the term eGurukula was coined by my friend Sai Padma when I was trying to explain how I wanted knowledge to be accessible to all and some who afford to pay, could do so, at their levels of affordability. She liked the idea a lot.

I like the term eGurukula. I was thinking I could also run short term courses, with definite time frames and syllabus and give people a certificate of successful completion.. at this time I don’t know the legalities yet, but I could find out,,,

In USA virtual university vu.org does something a bit like this. 2 of my courses were published there…

Here are some areas.

  1. Ancient Indian Philosophy
  2. Ancient Indian History
  3. Ancient Indian Astronomy
  4. Ancient Indian Astrology
  5. Ancient Indian Calendars
  6. Ancient Indian Instruments
  7. Ancient Indian Scientists and Philosophers
  8. Ancient Indian Languages – Sanskrit…

And so on…
