27 December 2020 to 3 January 2021

Welcome to our information page on the Australian Sanskrit Week. The Week is open to current students of the Schools of Philosophy in Australia and New Zealand who are aged a minimum of 18 years, practise mantra meditation & have attended at least one weekend residential held by their School of Philosophy.

Each year a residential Sanskrit week is held during the Australasian summer. Philosophy students from New Zealand and Australia are able to spend time in the company of like-minded people studying this most powerful and ancient language. The week caters for beginners as well as for those with greater experience of Sanskrit.

This year in Auckland we are privileged to be guided by Mr. Warwick Jessup, Head of Sanskrit in the School of Philosophy and Economic Science based in London.

The Sanskrit Residential Week offers an ideal opportunity for quiet study, meditation, chanting, discussion, studying the grammar of Pāṇini, electives and simple kitchen and house-keeping service. The main focus for this week will be a passage from one of the Upaniṣads.

Enrolments & Registration

The early bird cost for the week is $500 including accommodation and meals if paid by October 20 – and $600 thereafter. The location will be the Auckland School’s beautiful home at 268 West Tamaki Rd, Glendowie.
