Common question

- No
Just come as you are and let you be guided in this auspicious language

Is Sanskrit useful?
Yes!, it is useful to learn Sanskrit for many reasons:
It is the language of the Vedas and Upanishads, which contain some of mankind's highest and most subtle spiritual discoveries and express them in beautiful metaphors.
The most practical value of learning Sanskrit trains the mind to think logically, brings clarity of expression, develops intellectual strength, and provides keen insight into the meanings of Sarasvati's सरस्वती words.

Committed to a spiritual lifestyle, Ingela इन्दिरा has been studying and teaching Vedānta, Sanskrit, Vedic chanting, yoga and sacred ceremony since 2005.
She first came to Bali, ‘The Island of the Gods’, in 1999; “I knew right from the start that there was something special about Bali. The vivid traditions, culture and the spirit of the island fascinated me. I truly believe that, with its spiritual essence, Bali has so much to share with the rest of the world.”

Ingela इन्दिरा is a dedicated and long-time student of her revered Sanskrit and Vedānta teacher, Svāmī Vāgiīśānanda Sarasvatī.

If you have a longing to learn the basic in Sanskrit संस्कृत . I can really recommend this class.
It’s a true pleasure and among my favourite thing to learn at the moment. I am definitely not a language person. It doesn’t come easy for me, it’s more of a struggle but this is different thanks to our beautiful teacher, Ingela Pinglan she has an unique way of encourage us all to learn in a fun and a relaxed way.
This is also for my sanga friends who are studying the Vedas and Upanishads but haven’t been able to read the Devanagari. That missing piece is actually essential.
