Weekly Photo Challenge: Connected Through Our Love of Sanskrit

Last month, I attended a three day Sanskrit immersion family camp being held at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington.  The camp was sponsored by Samskrita Bharati (संस्कृतभारती), an international organization that is “devoted to the mission of popularizing Sanskrit as a spoken language, and, thereby, engendering a cultural renaissance through rejuvenation of this language which holds the key to the unfoldment of India’s rich cultural heritage and knowledge.”

This was the fourth year I had attended their summer workshop.  I loved being with the faculty and students I had met in previous years, as well having the opportunity to meet the new students.  I felt very connected to everyone; connected through our love of Sanskrit.

A few days ago, I found a photo of the students and faculty who attended this year’s camp on the Seattle Samskrita Bharati Facebook page.  I don’t think you will have any trouble spotting me! 🙂

    1. It actually was a smaller group than the previous three years. There were four levels of Sanskrit classes plus the children’s class. I was in Level 2. There were only five of us in that class.

    1. I’ve written quite a few posts about Sanskrit on my blog. I just put Sanskrit in the search box and all or most of them showed up. So if you or your grandfather would like to see more you can check it out!
