In Kerala they learn/write Sanskrit in Malayalam script, not Devnagri. :)
Writing Sanskrit in Devnagri was popularized by the British, in the 19th century.
:) Sanskrit is much older than Devnagri. I wonder how it was written long ago. :)

Javanese is influenced by Sanskrit in vocabulary and phonology..Sanskrit words are mostly used in Javanese literature and Wayang Kulit show. While there are sanskrit words in Javanese, there are also Javanese native equivalent. Those sanskrit words are also known as Kawi words. Javanese grammar remains unchanged.

A few links that have some Sanskrit reading material:
http://mahabharata-resources.org/
http://sanskrit.safire.com/
http://www.archive.org/details/asanskri ... 01lanmgoog

I'm sure there's more, but that's all I found of interest in a quick web-search.

I've tried to learn sanskrit for some years having as only resource the book "Teach yourself sanskrit" by Michael Coulson.

I've done the full book about 3 times and tried to read sanskrit in bilingual books - some bilingual editions of Kalidasa texts, all I could find. The result was that I could read it very slowly, with lots of gaps, using the aid of the transliteration to latin script and online dictionaries. Still, I couldn't understand exactly half of the meaning of the poems, and only the "sakuntala" piece was more understandable, althought I could read it only veryyy slowly, so I never finished the first part...

In fact, I've never grasped well the grammar(the many declinations and verb conjugations for example) neither some aspects of writting aglutination, for considering Michael Coulson's book the toughest language book I ever had in my hands... I also had little experience in more extent reading, as his book only provides little phrases for practicing.

In this situation, is there a material someone could recommend to me? A learning-grammar more easy and with more reading than Coulson's? Or indicate some literature and bilingual-texts I could practice better than with Kalidasa's ones?

I was thinking on re-working all Coulson's book again, this time with more attention, but I don't know if this would be finally succesful.

It seems quite a few people in the Amazon reviews for Coulson's book recommend supplementing it with Egenes' Introduction to Sanskrit, particularly its volume 1, particularly for those who don't have a background in heavily-inflected dead languages.
You might want to try a graduated reader with notes about grammar etc. instead of jumping straight into bilingual texts. I read Lanman's Sanskrit Reader at that point in my studies and I feel it helped a lot. Its copyright should be expired everywhere in the world, so hopefully you should be able to read it online here.
If you have any questions I can try answering them.

The Upanishads state that God/the Ultimate Reality is neither masculine, feminine, nor neuter. Is this reflected gramatically in religious texts in the original Sanskrit?

Are you thinking of a particular text?
At any rate, a noun in Sanskrit has to have a grammatical gender. The most important words for absolute reality and the God which is identical with it are Brahmā and Brahman. They're actually the same word in Sanskrit--in the -an noun declension, neuter nouns in nominative singular end in -an and masculine nouns in nominative singular end in (the n drops out and the vowel lengthens to compensate). The masculine Brahmā is typically used to refer to the personified being of God, while the neuter brahman is used to refer to the abstract, transcendent phenomenon.
