This course is for the study of the text Paramalaghumañjūṣā of Nāgeśa Bhaṭṭa. Paramalaghumañjūṣā is one of the basic texts in the ārthika/dārśanika tradition of pāninīya vyākaraṇa, which gives an idea of all the key concepts like sphoṭa, śakti-lakṣaṇā-vyañjanā, dhātvartha-ākhyātārtha-nipātārtha-nāmārtha, etc. This text is included in the syllabus of almost all universities which offer specialisation in Vyākaraṇaśāstra at the post-graduate level.
The course was in the form of live online classes. After classes, the audio files (in mp3 format) accompanied by notes (in pdf format) have been uploaded in the portal. There are also links to video-recordings of the webinar.
First half of the text including Sphoṭa, śakti, lakṣaṇā, vyajanā, śābdabodhasahakārikāraṇas (ākāṅkṣā, yogyatā, āsatti and tātparyya) have been covered in the course. The second half of the grantha will be covered in a separate course later.
