SANSKRIT · An invitation to an intensive period of grammar and translation

Q centre for experimentation invites a teacher of Sanskrit for an
intensive period of grammar and translation of the 36 verses of the Parâtrîshikâ,
one of the most important tantras linked to non-dual Shivaism of Kashmir.

Q is a retreat space in the countryside (Maestrazgo region, Teruel, Aragon, Spain),
where to experience a simple and conscious life, with low environmental impact.
A way of life that integrates ecology, degrowth and consciousness, physical, intellectual
and spiritual work; active life and contemplative life, being an example of their symbiosis.
(more about Q in Way of Life and General Information)

Sanskrit is one of the subjects of study of Neus Buira Ferré (ideator, co-founder and manager of Q).
With the desire to deepen its study and open a bridge between Q and Sanskrit translators, Neus invites
a Sanskrit teacher for a minimum of 3 months for an intensive period of grammar and translation,
in exchange for a personal retreat stay, and if desired, to participate in the daily life of the project.

Dates to be agreed with the teacher interested in this stay and exchange.

Regarding the language to communicate:

My native languages are Catalan and Spanish.
I have a good level of French, a language I studied from the age of 7 until I was 19, outside regular school.
And a basic level of English and German (Mittelstufe-I), which allow me to understand and make myself
understood, especially in philosophical and metaphysical contexts. in philosophical and metaphysical contexts.
I have much more vocabulary in German than in English, but on the other hand, I read better in English thanks
to the texts in the better in English thanks to the Sanskrit grammar texts and the Sanskrit-English books that
I have been reading for years. With any of these 5 languages it would be possible.
