The present grammar has been prepared with a view to meet the growing educational need of university students. The author has done his best to bring the present grammar up to the requirements of the students. In writing the various chapters of this book, the author has closely followed Pannini, as explained by Bhattoji Diksita. Many of the rules given here are translations of the relevant Sutras of Panini. The original Sutras are given in footnotes, where necessary. Sandhis and declensions are fully treated; compounds which dominate classical Sanskrit literature have received special attention; formation of feminine bases has been illustrated; Taddhita affixes have been arranged in an alphabetical order. A special feature of the present grammar is the chapter on the "Conjugation of Verbs." The general rules given are amply illustrated by examples. All the verbs which change their pada when preceded by particular prepositions are given in an alphabetical order. The chapter on Syntax contains almost everything given in the first 20 chapters of author's Guide to Sanskrit Composition; the chapter on Prosody is based on the Chandomanjari and the Vrttaratnakara. The author has spared no pains to make the book as useful and as complete as possible.

This book is designed to serve as a convenient quick-reference guide to the grammar of Classical Sanskrit for the use of university students and others. It is not intended to be a complete grammar of the language. Rather, its purpose is to pre-sent, mainly in the form of easily read tables, essential reference information such as the rules of sandhi, the declensional and con-jugational paradigms, and the principal parts of major verbs. About two-thirds of the book consists of tables. The remainder is text, with advice on how to use the tables and explanations of the grammatical information has been abstracted, with substantial modification of the presentation, from existing Sanskrit grammars, especially those of Whitney, MacDonell, and Kale. An exception is the set of three indexes: Index to verb stems, Index to verb endings, and Index to noun endings(Tables 28-30). These probably have no counterpart elsewhere. The manual originated as a set of photocopied notes which was supplied, as a supplement to existing textbooks, to first and second year students of Sanskrit in the Department of Studies in Religion at the University of Queensland. Over a period of seven years those notes were progressively modified and expanded until they became the present fairly comprehensive reference work.
