The Directorate of Higher Education of Goa gave clearance to Sanskrit language which will be introduced as a new course by the Kundaim Mutt’s Shree Brahmanand Sanskrit Prabodhini organization in the state.

This is for the first time that Goa will be offered with such a course for its students. Meanwhile the given proposal will be under perusal by the Goa University’s (GU) academic council.


Sources confirms, that it is expected that the course will possibly be offered in Goa from the academic year 2016-17 itself.

The foundation will be based within Kundaim Mutt’s campus and will be known as Swami Brahmanand Mahavidyalaya. It is also mentioned that students from any stream can join the degree programme, although some knowledge of Sanskrit will be desirable.

At present, only primary level is being offered with Sanskrit course in Goa schools.

It was only then in November when a 13-member committee was constituted in Goa headed by former chief election commissioner N Gopalaswami to suggest how best the interest in Sanskrit can be regenerated among the young generation and the citizens.
