SVAPNAV?SAVADATTAM

The drama Svapnav?savadattam, comprising of six acts, was composed by Bh?sa, one of the most eminent authors of Classical Sanskrit literature. The complete manuscript of the drama was discovered in Kerala in 1912. The play is based on the legend of the romantic narrative of the Vatsa king Udayana and queen V?savadatt?.

It is a great privilege for the students to be acquainted with this critically acclaimed literary work of ancient India.

K?DAMBAR?

K?dambar? is an acclaimed prose romance of Sanskrit literature. It was substantially composed by B??abha??a in the first half of the 7th CE. Beside the marvelous storyline, some dramatic elements such as, multiple incarnations of the characters, narration by a parrot etc. seem very novel and attractive to the young readers. The preface of the prose, the ‘Kath?mukham’ and the sermon of the minister named ?ukan?sa, the ‘?ukan?sopade?a?’—these two portions have been selected to be taught.

GENERAL GRAMMAR AND TRANSLATION

The students are to be acquainted with some basic topics of Sanskrit grammar following the A???dhy?y? of P??ini. Sandhi, Sam?sa, N?madh?tu, K?t, Taddhita, San and Ya?--these are enlisted in the course. To enhance the writing skills, translation from Sanskrit to English and English to Sanskrit are included in this paper.

PAPER II

R?JAV?HANACARITAM

Da?akum?racaritam is a prose romance written by Da??in. It has eight chapters. It describes the adventures of ten young men, the Kum?ras, all of whom are either princes or sons of royal ministers, as narrated by the men themselves. R?jav?hanacaritam is the first chapter of this great prose where the prince R?jav?hana asserts his own experience.

ABHIJÑ?NA?AKUNTALAM

Abhijñ?na?akuntalam is considered as the best composition of K?lid?sa, the most acclaimed litterateur of Classical Sanskrit literature. Inspired by the ?akuntalop?khy?nam of Mah?bh?rata the poet composed this drama comprising of seven acts. This drama has been translated into every Indian regional language as well as in many foreign languages also, allowing the erudite community all over the world to read and research about this excellent work. It is a great privilege for our students that they are acquainted with the original text, the commentaries and of course the personal history of the dramatist.

KIR?TARJUN?YAM (CANTO-1)

Kir?tarjun?yam is a Sanskrit epic by Bh?ravi, written in the 6th century or earlier. It is an epic in eighteen cantos describing the combat between Arjuna and ?iva at Indrakil?dri in the present-day Vijayanagada in the guise of a Kir?ta or a mountain-dwelling hunter. Along with Nai?adhacaritam and the ?i?up?lavadham, it is one of the larger three of the six Sanskrit Mah?k?vyas, a great epic. It is noted among Sanskrit critics both for its gravity or depth of meaning and for its forceful and sometimes playful expression.

K?VY?LA?K?RAS?TRAV?TTI

V?mana is the author of the treatise titled ‘K?vy?la?k?ras?trav?tti’ (S?tras on poetic embellishment). The book was consisted of three parts and was written in the form of aphorisms (s?tras) with glosses (v?tti). V?mana believed that the ‘R?ti’ (poetic styles) was the soul of the poetry. He distinguished three forms of R?ti—P?ñch?l?-- which is marked by a tender, sweet sound; Gau??-- which is distinguished by brilliant, forceful poetic expression and Vaidarbh?-- which combines all the qualities of poetic speech and is considered the perfect form.

PART II

PAPER III

S?HITYADARPA?A?

The ‘S?hityadarpa?a?’, authored by the famous rhetorician Vi?van?tha Kavir?ja is a canonical book on Sanskrit poetics and dramaturgy. The sixth and the tenth chapters of this book are prescribed in the syllabus.

The characteristics of dramatic K?vya (R?pakas) and the principal type of R?pakas along with subsidiary ones (Upar?pakas) are discussed elaborately in the sixth chapter of S?hityadarpa?a. The comparative studies of the N?tya??stra of Bharata and the Da?ar?paka of Dhanañjaya are imperative in this connection. The students will be acquainted with the style of eminent dramatists like K?lid?sa, Bhavabh?ti, Bha??an?r?ya?a, R?ja?ekhara etc, their works, their influence on Indian theatrical performance and their relevance in present days. The objective of teachings is to highlight and inculcate the Indian heritage of dramatic K?vya.

The tenth chapter of ‘S?hityadarpa?a?’ deals with the Ala?k?ra (Figure of Speech). The Ala?k?ra doctrine in Sanskrit poetics is perhaps as old as the theory of poetry itself. In broad significance it stands for ‘Kavyasaundarya’ or poetic beauty and in the narrow sense it applies to the figure of speech like Upam?, R?paka and so on. The two major divisions of Ala?k?ra – the ?abd?la?k?ra and Arth?la?k?ra, both are discussed exhaustively with ample illustrations. This knowledge of rhetoric is requisite for every student of Sanskrit to understand any literary work.

ESSAY IN SANSKRIT

To enhance the composition skills of the students, essay writing has been included in the paper.

BHA??IK?VYAM

The Bha??ik?vyam, originally named as ‘R?va?avadham’, was composed in 7th CE. This epic focuses on two deeply rooted Sanskrit traditions—the R?m?ya?a and the Paninian grammar. This is an original piece of literature intended to teach grammar through the verses. The epic is the earliest sample of an ‘instructional poem’ or ??stra-k?vya.

PAPER IV

 HISTORY OF CLASSICAL SANSKRIT LITERATURE

The huge stock of classical Sanskrit literature includes epic, lyric, tragedy, comedy, pastoral and other forms of writings. Through the study of this literature, the students are acquainted with Classical Sanskrit Poetry as well as our cultural heritage. The image of society emerges in literature. So, in addition to the experience of the marvelous literary styles of K?lid?sa-Bh?sa-Bhavabh?ti-B??abha??a-Bilha?a and many others, the students will also get to know about the contemporary social, political and religious conditions.

HISTORY OF VEDIC LITERATURE

It is well known that the Vedas are the oldest literature of the world.  The Vedas are primarily a collection of hymns and religious texts written in India between 2000-1500 BCE. The prescribed portion of Vedas help us to know about the traditional Indian knowledge and ancient Indian literature. It includes elements of literary materials as well as mythological accounts, poems, prayers and rules and rituals. The divisions of Vedas, age of Vedas, social life of the-then society—these are the important sections of the history of Vedic literature.

HISTORY OF SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL SANSKRIT LITERATURE

Like the classical literary works, the scientific and technical knowledge of the scholars of ancient India touched the apex of brilliance too. Through books and scriptures, we can know about the excellence in various branches of Science, such as, Ayurveda, Mathematics, Astronomy etc as well as the technical studies on various schools of Music, Dance and Drama.  Our culture is indeed indebted to this ancient stock of knowledge. Our students should know about our scientific and technical heritage and be able to compare between the ancient and the present developments.

PART-III

PAPER V

VEDIC HYMNS

The Vedas are the earliest and most important religious texts of ancient India. Composed in Vedic Sanskrit, these texts constitute the oldest layer of Sanskrit literature. The main objective of teaching Vedic literature is to make the students aware of the literary heritage of ancient India. We have five hymns to teach from Rgveda-- Agnis?ktam, Hira?yagarbhas?ktam , Dev?s?ktam , Ak?as?ktam and Sa?jñ?nas?ktam.

 Agnis?ktam is the first hymn in the Vedas. Agni, the fire-god, is considered a cosmic power, who protects and guides human beings towards perfection. Hira?yagarbhas?ktam is the source of the creation of the universe or the manifested cosmos in Vedic philosophy, as well as an avatar of Vishnu in the Bh?gavatpur??a. The Ak?as?ktam deals with the damaging effects of gambling. The Dev?s?ktam is also called the ?dhy?tmikas?ktam. In the present day, the s?kta is popularly chanted during the worship of the Dev?, in the daily rituals of temples, and in various sacrificial ceremonies. Sa?jñ?nas?ktam is the last s?kta of the ?gveda which is chanted to create harmony.

BH?MIS?KTA

Land is our mother. Our mother always protects us like a cow who protects her calf. In the Bh?mis?kta, we see how the ancient sages have panegyrized or eulogized her by reciting hymns.

MANUMATSYAKATH?

 Manumatsyakath? is an ancient story where we see how Matsya Incarnation rescued the submerged world and saved all lives. The aim of the course is to get the students acquainted with Vedic hymns briefly.

B?HAD?RA?YAKOPANI?AD

The B?had?ra?yakopani?ad is one of the principal Upani?ads and one of the oldest Upani?adic scriptures of the Vedic literature. The main objective of the B?had?ra?yakopani?ad is ?tmatattva or Brahmatattva. It is entirely based on philosophical knowledge.

The rules of Padap??ha of the hymns and the basic laws of Vedic grammar are also taught in this syllabus.

PAPER VI

The entire paper deals with the survey of literature of Dharma??stras, Artha??stra and N?ti??stras. The history of social rules and ethical codes which are not mere legal codes but also comprehensive codes to regulate human conduct and the whole life of a man have been taught herein. Hindu law of the present day and its link to the original texts and commentaries of Dharma??stras have been discussed in subsequent classes.

 Y?JÑAVALKYASA?HIT?

The Y?jñavalkyasa?hit? is one of the best composed and systematic specimens belonging to the Dharma?astra tradition. The theories within the Y?jñavalkyasa?hit? are presented in three books, namely, the ?c?rak???a, the Vyavah?rak???a and the Pr?ya?cittak???a. Selected portions from the Vyavah?rak???a only is prescribed in the syllabus. This book is enriched with many judicial process theories, which had great influence in medieval India’s judiciary practice. Our students have come to know about the extensive discussions on judicial processes, evidences, law of inheritance and crimes and punishment of the-then society. 

MANUSA?HIT?

Seventh chapter of the Manusa?hit? which deals with politics and principles of royal policy including origin of kingship, appointment of ministers, envoys, political expedients which are s?ma (conciliation), d?na (gift), bheda (digression), da??a (punishment), six kinds of forts, weapons used in war, the law of war, the policy of tradition, several arrangements of army, rural administration and inter-state relation- all these topics have been duly covered and vividly explained in class lectures and relevant class notes have been given wherever needed. Some of these topics are relevant even in the present context. This has also been explained in the class lectures which were well-accepted by the students.

ARTHA??STRA

The main objective of teaching several chapters of the Artha??stra is to imbibe the importance of different branches of learning and logical analysis of these branches of vidy?s which emphasize the role of the educated king, control over the senses, which is the very foundation of leadership, importance of appointment of ministers, envoys (d?tas) as a part of internal administration, massive network of spies, agents operating within the state and also in surrounding and enemy states as well as security measures taken by the king have also been taught in class lectures. Comparative study with the Manusa?hit? in connection with selected copies has been suggested.

PAPER VII

This paper deals with two topics --

1) K?rakaprakara?a and Sam?saprakara?a according to the A?t?dhy?y? of P??ini

2) Elements of Linguistics

 K?RAKAPRAKARA?A

Sanskrit grammatical tradition began in the late vedic India and culminated in the A???dhy?y? of P??ini. Morphology and syntax of the-then Sanskrit language have been scrutinized in this legendary work. ‘K?raka-bibhakti’, meaning the case endings are the integral part of the construction of any Sanskrit sentence. The extensive study of Paninian ‘K?raka-bibhakti’ along with the ’B?lamanoram?’ commentary of Bha??oji D?k?ita, is mandatory for any student of the Sanskrit language.

SAM?SAPRAKARA?A

The aim of this course is to get the students learn the basic of Sanskrit grammar through Vaiy?kara?asiddh?ntakaumud? based on Sam?sa. Students will be able to learn the application of P?nini’s s?tras, so that they can use it for better and more compact writing skill.

 LINGUISTICS

 ‘Linguistic’ means the knowledge of modification of language by time to time. It introduces us with the ancient and modern form of a language and describes the process and the reason of this conversion. Through this subject we get an opportunity to be familiar with various languages of this world, as well as to decipher our valuable ancient text with this knowledge. Last of all, our philological experiences are enriched, which can help in our higher studies.

PAPER VIII

This paper gives a thorough knowledge of Tarkasagr?aha and the general acquaintance with the main systems of Indian Philosophy.

 Indian philosophy refers to ancient philosophical traditions of the Indian subcontinent. There are six major schools of orthodox Indian Hindu philosophy- Ny?ya, Vai?e?ika, S??khya, Yoga, M?m??s? and Ved?nta and three major heterodox schools-C?rvak, Jain and Buddhist. There are huge differences between their opinion, but they all have a common aim to attain eternal salvation or bliss. Each school explains their objective in different manners. Through this discussion our philosophical thoughts developed.

Tarkasagr?aha is authored by Anna?bha??a. The author himself has given a detailed commentary called Tarkasa?grahad?pik? for the text. He composed the text as well as the commentary in the second half of the seventeenth century CE. The text of Tarkasa?graha is a small book with about fifteen pages only and it was composed to help boys and girls to learn easily about the basic principles of Ny?ya. Of all the works of Anna?bha??a, Tarkasa?graha and its commentary attained the widest acceptance. The text presents the ontology, logic and epistemology of the Ny?ya-Vai?e?ika system.
