Learning Braj Bhasa


Recommended Posts


Some of you may find Rupert Snell's book The Hindi Classical Tradition: A Braj Bhasa Reader an interesting read. It is helpful in understanding the language of Dasam Granth so that you don't have to rely on other people's translations.

Most of it is in English transliteration, but it is helpful for you to learn Devanagari script.

Rupert Snell is the same guy who wrote the Teach Yourself Hindi book, so he has former experience of language teaching which makes his book on Braj Bhasa a fairly straightforward read. However, the book is not primarily a teach yourself Braj Bhasa book, but it goes into some depth as to how Braj differs from regular Hindi.

If you work through his book on Hindi, then read his Braj Bhasa book, you should find the language of Dasam Granth much easier to understand.

The book is available direct from the publisher Routledge or from amazon.
