Gadyasaṅgraha is a collection of prose portions from various famous gadyakāvyasof Samskṛta, prescribed by the Chittoor board for its fourth level examination (Samartha). Prose is considered a difficult genre in Sanskrit, giving rise to the adage “गद्यं कवीनां निकषं वदन्ति” (Prose is the touchstone of poets). Sanskrit prose is forceful in nature, full of long samaasas – ओजःसमासभूयस्त्वमेतद्गद्यस्य लक्षणम् । Consequently, learning to read gadyakāvyas is a crucial step in the education of a Sanskrit student.
In these Audio lectures in Tamil, Ms. Visalakshi Sankaran leads the students through the various prose pieces with ease, ensuring both understanding of the text and appreciation of the linguistic aspects. These lectures are sure to be of a great help to students preparing for the examination.
We thank Ms. Visalakshi Sankaran for permitting Vyoma-Samskrta-Pathasala to share these valuable resources with our students.
