Dr. Prasannakshi's Lecture Collections

She has indepth subject knowledge and can co-relate many different Granta, Purana, Upanishad and Vedic texts to give a big picture on the essence of Sanskrit Scripts.

Because of her commitments she could not give much time to me. I am negotiating with her to get maximum knowledge out of her. Will be updated in due course.

Links to similar lectures are given below and this collection can grow with your help!
