srila prabhupada studied in college, runs his family by working in pharmacy but i didnt heard srila prabhupada that he learnt sanskrit from any sanskrit school. please help me solve my confusion about how did srila prabhupada learnt sanskrit and from where.
but according to avaya charan movie srila prabhupada did not get much chance to meet his spritual master. so how was it possible. i am also from bharat barsh but most of the people nowadays do not know sanskrit. school curriculum is also not like that way? please clear my confusion.
It say Prabhupada himself in an interview
Prof. Gombrich: Yes. But did you yourself study Sanskrit at Vṛndāvana or...?
Prabhupāda: No. We had studied Sanskrit in school, colleges. In our time, Sanskrit was compulsory. In our days. Nowadays, I don't think so...
Indian man: I, I also had compulsory up to...
Prabhupāda: Sanskrit compulsory, and additional there was Sanskrit. So I took both, compulsory and additional.
Prof. Gombrich: I see.
Prabhupāda: Up to my I.A., I regularly studied Sanskrit, and in my B.A., I gave up Sanskrit. I read history. (laughs) No. Not in B.A. B.A., my combination was economics and philosophy. In I.A., I.A. was intermediate. I.A. I had history and Sanskrit.
