BTW, if you have determined that your guru is from a traditional gurukulam
and is a good teacher (which I assume you must have since you are learning
from him), you should just follow what he says and not solicit advice from
people you don't know, especially on the internet.
> My Rigveda teacher is just around 20 years old and a fresher from
shrungeri pAthashAla. He has learnt kramAnta and he almost knows & recite
all saMhita maNtra-s by heart. But I dont think he knows the rules of
svara-s & Sanskrit grammar in detail. Recently we both went for some veda
pArAyaNa programme, where we had to recite maNtra-s with some other
ritviks, others just recited those maNtra-s with svarita whereas we both
recited those same maNtra-s with deergha svarita. You know how it would
be when same maNtra has been recited with different svara-s in a sabha!!.
Later on I asked him about this difference, he could not explain it in
detail, he just said it is pAtha bedha, but I didnot think that way since
those other ritviks have learnt these maNtra-s in our style only i.e.
shrungeri pAtha !!
I realize that I am shooting myself in the foot somewhat, given my
previous reply. But just
take it as a friendly suggestion.
> Thanks for your kind suggestion prabhuji. I thought, by asking this
question in forum I would get more authentic answer.
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
