With my mother Saroja

Born and raised in Bangalore, India; Shantala Sriramaiah founded Sanskrit Belgium with the intention of continuing her family tradition. She credits much of her knowledge to her mother, Saroja, who taught regular classes in their home for over 30 years. Shantala feels very fortunate to have attended a school with Sanskrit in the mainstream curriculum. She had the opportunity to learn the script, grammar as well as important epics and scriptures from an early age.

More recently, she certified to teach Vedic chanting under the strict guidance of Radha Sundarajan and continues almost daily lessons and practice with her. Shantala is keen to make this tradition accessible to an international audience.
