About this course
In this major course, students study various Indian thoughts and religions, including Buddhism. Specifically, students read works written in Sanskrit and Pali (the language stemmed from Sanskrit). Although Sanskrit appears to be difficult for beginners, it is actually an extremely "clear" language. The Indian philosophy that uses such language of definite meanings is therefore very logical.
