Introduction to Avestan: SOAS – BORI Course, Pune


Dear Friends,

UNESCO Parzor is happy to announce the first of the Educational Outreach programmes in collaboration with SOAS, University of London.

Professor Almut Hintze, Zarthoshty Brothers Professor of Zoroastrianism, will be offering a 10 day Course at the Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institute, Pune this July. Due to a kind donation there is no fee for this course. At the end of an intensive programme the student will have acquired an Introduction to Avestan, with a comparative perspective of the Indo- Iranian heritage shared by Vedic and Avestan.

Therefore this Course is of interest to all those who are students of Vedic Studies and will add to their knowledge.

I will be grateful if you could circulate this information and the attached Course Structure    and Registration Form on your websites and Facebook groups to reach as large an audience as possible at the earliest. Kindly print out the Poster for display at popular sites on your Campus as well. Interested individuals are most welcome as well.

We look forward to a good response.

With warm regards,

Dr. Shernaz Cama,

Director, UNESCO Parzor Project,
