This website is intended to provide the resources for learning Sanskrit grammar using the rules of Pāṇini. It has the recordings of the online classes taught by Br. Shankara and Śri Satish Karandikar on weekends. It also has posts and responses to the questions on the posts as well as an archive of the various documents that are used in the class.
Introduction to Sanskrit
The AVG-Weekend classes were started at AVG by Br. Shankara.
The recordings of the classes by Br. Shankara are available here – http://avg-sanskrit.org/notes-for-saturday-class/saturday-class-recordings-2009/. These classes give an introduction to the language without using Pāṇini’s rules.
Before starting with the classes please study this article on Māheśwara Sūtrāṇi which is like the ABC of Sanskrit grammar – http://avg-sanskrit.org/introduction-to-sanskrit/माहेश्वर-सूत्राणि/
The Pāṇini sutra lectures by Satishji are available at the following link – http://avg-sanskrit.org/recordings/saturday-vyakaranam-classes-2010-and-beyond/.
The सूत्र-सूचिः document referred to in the class has all the sutras that have been covered in the class so far along with their वृत्तिः and English translation of the वृत्तिः। Currently there are five parts to the सूत्र-सूचिः। The उदाहरणानि document has the examples that are covered in the class. There are 2 parts to this document. These can be found in the pages section on the right hand side of the avg-sanskrit.org home page.
