This book is designed to serve as a convenient quick-reference guide to the grammar of Classical Sanskrit for the use of university students and others. It is not intended to be a complete grammar of the language. Rather, its purpose is to pre-sent, mainly in the form of easily read tables, essential reference information such as the rules of sandhi, the declensional and con-jugational paradigms, and the principal parts of major verbs. About two-thirds of the book consists of tables. The remainder is text, with advice on how to use the tables and explanations of the grammatical information has been abstracted, with substantial modification of the presentation, from existing Sanskrit grammars, especially those of Whitney, MacDonell, and Kale. An exception is the set of three indexes: Index to verb stems, Index to verb endings, and Index to noun endings(Tables 28-30). These probably have no counterpart elsewhere. The manual originated as a set of photocopied notes which was supplied, as a supplement to existing textbooks, to first and second year students of Sanskrit in the Department of Studies in Religion at the University of Queensland. Over a period of seven years those notes were progressively modified and expanded until they became the present fairly comprehensive reference work.

The traditional Indian method of learning Sanskrit is through oral transmission, by first memorizing texts and then learning their meaning. The Western academic approach methodically teaches the alphabet, declensions, grammar, syntax, and vocabulary building. Zoë Slatoff-Ponté's Yogavataranam integrates the traditional and academic approaches for a full and practical experience of Sanskrit study. Yogavataranam approaches language systematically and at the same time allows students to read important and relevant texts as soon as possible, while emphasizing proper pronunciation through its audio accompaniment. The first section teaches reading and basic grammar, the second covers more extensive grammar, and by the third, students can begin to read and understand even more complex texts, such as the Upanisads. Yogavataranam includes: Step-by-step instructions on how to correctly write the alphabet Exercises throughout, along with review exercises for each chapter Sidebars on Indian philosophy, culture, etymology, and more Vocabulary building based on important texts An extensive glossary of terms Consideration of translation techniques and challenges Original translations of passages from central texts, such as the Yogasutra, Bhagavadgita, Hathapradipika, and various Upanisads In addition, Web-based audio files accompany each chapter to teach proper pronunciation. Yogavataranam is appropriate for all levels of study, whether a student is brand-new to Sanskrit or already has experience in pronunciation, reading devanagari script, interpreting meaning, or learning grammar-and whether the course is academic or based in yoga. This new approach joins theory and practice to invoke an active experience of the philosophy, the practice, and the culture that together inform the multiplicity of meanings contained within the single and powerful word "yoga."
