Shri V Subramanian has mentioned about learning of Sanskrit (by correspondence) and Advaita Philosophy (thro' Skype) (medium of instruction would be either in Kannada or Sanskrit).  I have visited the website of Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan and getting enrolled.  If there are scholars who could teach Advaita philosophy either through Tamil/Telugu/English, I will be interested.  I am currently based in Bengaluru.
Please help me.

With profound regards,

> He told me that currently there are three popular courses: prAk Shaastri,
> ShAstri and AchArya.
> Anyone interested in starting afresh or furthering their knowledge in

> There is another scholar in Advaita Vedanta, Vidwan Shri Vasudeva Karanth,

> periphery of Mangalore can make use of this scholar's knowledge.
> Since this is a traditionally based study, the aspirant is expected to have
> the minimum requirement of having been initiated into upanayanam and doing
> sandhya vandanam regularly. A basic knowledge of Sanskrit would be a great
> advantage.
> Interested persons may please contact me by email to take this initiative
