The titles are the following.

Grammar Reference Coursebook Gita Dictionary Gita Reader Gita Sanskrit Key Reading Tutor

Grammar Reference

The Aruna Sanskrit Grammar Reference is the first title in the series. The Grammar Reference follows the reference style presentation of grammar. This will provide a logical, consistent and complete exposition of the grammar for reading only proficiency. The grammar uses minimal wording and presents the material in outline and chart form as much as possible to maximize your visual memory of the information. This method also greatly assists review and re-review of the grammar, necessary to master the subject. This text is the same as, though not as up-to-date as, the html version in My Offerings.

Grammar Coursebook

The Aruna Sanskrit Grammar Coursebook: 64 Lessons Based on the Bhagavad Gita Chapter Two is the second title in the series. The lessons in the Aruna Coursebook give a relatively quick overview of the entire Grammar Reference—its layout, its methodology and how its grammar rules are to be understood. Enough explanation with little redundancy is provided to explain the outlined and charted grammar presented in the Grammar Reference so that you can learn on your own with little or no assistance from a teacher, assuming you can apply a post-high school aptitude towards this work.

Gita Dictionary

The Bhagavad Gita Dictionary is the third title in the series. This is a Sanskrit to Sanskrit and English dictionary of the entire Bhagavad Gita. Many entries include reference citations to grammatical rules for their peculiar formations presented in The Aruna Sanskrit Grammar Reference. The derivation of many words is included as appropriate. The entries also provide Sanskrit synonyms and/or meanings, plus contextual Sanskrit analysis of compound words, so that your vocabulary builds beyond the Gita with each use. The goal of this vocabulary building is to encourage you to start to think in Sanskrit while you read Sanskrit—a multiplying effect that greatly enhances learning and builds the skills necessary to progress to Panini and the full grasp of the Sanskrit language, if you so choose. This text is the same as, though not as up-to-date as, the html version in My Offerings. View or download a PDF Preview of sample pages from Upasana Yoga here.

Sanskrit Reading Tutor

The Sanskrit Reading Tutor: Read It, Click It, Hear It! is an additional tool in the Aruna Sanskrit Language Series. This is a uniquely formatted PDF file that has the alphabet sections from the Grammar Reference plus the Script Reading Exercise of the Aruna Sanskrit Grammar Coursebook. This exercise contains all the verses of the second chapter of the Bhagavad Gītā, chanted by Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati.

The special feature of the PDF is that one can click on any of the characters in the alphabet section to hear its pronunciation, and on any of the individual lines, quarter verses, or their syllables of Script Reading Exercise to hear their pronunciation.

Unfortunately, these sound clips cannot be played by many PDF Preview programs or apps. They require the full, free Adobe Reader program, and even that cannot play the sound clips on some computers. This PDF is getting outdated and replaced by the html version in My Offerings. Try the html version first here. Otherwise, see if you can download and play a sample page of the Sanskrit Reading Tutor here and here.

If the PDF version is playable on your computer and you wish a full version, instead of the html version in My Offerings, click the below address. Please note its large size before downloading.
