Neela Sharma Bastola

Sanskrit Traditional Instructor

I was born and brought up in a family where Saṃskṛta was our primary language. Being immersed in Sanskrit growing up I received an immersive education of Sanskrit at my home in a traditional way. As well as this, I have completed my school level education from a Sanskrit School and have received my diploma from Nepal Sanskrit University specializing in Sanskrit grammar. As well as Sanskrit, I completed my Master’s degree in Sociology at Tribhuwan University. I have been teaching at Rangjung Yeshe Institute since 2020 as a traditional Sanskrit Instructor.
