The explosive power of stories
Here's a secret that all of the world's great language learners know: we acquire a language by engaging with content that we like and understand. That's all we need, and that's the only way it can happen.
That's why we created our free library of Sanskrit stories for all ages and levels. All you have to do is keep reading books you like. Even a complete beginner can find something in our library to read and enjoy.
Whimsical stories about about a boy and his friends.
An adaptation of the Valmiki Ramayana.
Original verses from the Bhagavad Gita.
The life of the Buddha, and other Buddhist stories.
Adaptations from the Panchatantra.
Lessons on phonetics and pronunciation.
