Who says Sanskrit is a dead language?

Sanskrit is a language that was not taught in my high school. Its vocabulary has not slipped into the street chat that is the beachhead for any new lexicon, although the increasing popularity of yoga may change that in the future. But in the meantime, anyone wanting to know how pronounce their favorite pose can turn to the Online Sanskrit Pronunciation Guide. This service is provided by Tilak Pyle, and I see my daughter Stephanie using it all the time for her teacher training studies at Flow Yoga. This is not a tutorial for learning Sanskrit, but is does take some of the mystery out of the nomenclature.
