Some Frequently asked questions

  1. Why should I join GGSS?

    By following the motivation of gurus and the principles of Sanatana Dharma, GGSS inspires people to be better human beings. For students, it not only teaches how to face Sanskrit exams, but also gives them courage, and builds confidence. It also develops the skills of leadership and team-building. GGSS helps to develop equanimity and give up jealousy, and leads you on the path to realise yourself.

  2. How do I join GGSS?

    Find out the branch located nearest to you from our list of branches. You can find the contact details of all our branches here . Call up the number and attend classes at the time instructed.

  3. What is the fees I have to pay?

    Dedication, Regularity, Punctuality and Commitment. We do not charge any fees for coaching. (You will have to pay a nominal price for the text books and materials provided).

You can appear for the examination if you clear the preparatory exams and the teacher is satisfied with your progress.
