Sanskrut classes

An open invitation to all to learn the Sanskrut language of our eternal and universal Vedic scriptures. Everyone is welcome to join the classes anytime – absolute beginners to advanced masters; children and adults. Come and experience at least once. Please spread the message!

We have been running Sanskrut classes since 2003. Currently we hold the following at VHP mandir:

  1. Every Tuesday 7.30pm to 9.30pm and Saturday 1.00pm to 3.00pm. General classes for all beginners (adults and children).
  2. Every Tuesday 7.30pm to 9.30pm and Saturday 1.00pm to 3.00pm. Separate structured and tailored classes for exam preparation at GCSE (Options A & B), AS and A levels.

Generally, courses are for one academic year starting in September leading to exams in following May/June. For exam purposes we are accredited with and use the materials of St James Independent Schools. For more information please visit and feel free to browse. Sitting for the exams is not essential but is very important as it positively supports the system of excellent international examinations and thereby, ensures that the University of Cambridge International Examinations Board continues with these world-wide exams for the benefit of all students in the future. Each exam student makes a vital contribution and significant addition to the world-wide numbers.

  1. Every Wednesday 7.30pm to 9.30pm. Special class purely studying the original Shrimad Bhagavatam text with our Guruji (Pandit Purushottam B Dave).

The classes are run by teachers on a purely voluntary basis. There are no charges except for the cost of recommended textbooks and exam fees.

NB: We are willing to consider starting additional classes at other locations, dates and times where there is sufficient demand. Also, we would welcome contact/suggestions from any other interested parties – schools, colleges, universities, temples.
