Temporal order of words in Sanskrit

This site is about reminding the people India, the facts about their nation that they have forgotten due to centuries of slavery. It is about the ideology, philosophy, language, culture, real history and the eternity of India. In fact, we don’t even remember the name with which our ancestors used to refer to this great nation viz. bhArata. Hence the name of the site uttiSTha bhArata meaning “Rise up, O bhArata”. Subscribe to the site if you like the articles. And if at all, you wish to be unsubscribed, you may comment on this page asking me to do so.

Request: If anyone can translate any article on this site in any Indian language, we shall post the translation as well so that those who do not know English are able to comprehend it. Please comment on this page if you are interested in translating so that we may get in touch.

The articles here are arranged in the form of the series mentioned below.

    This another great blog and impressed alot with your work shri Gaurav Shah. I want to state a website here which is useful as your blog. If it is already known to you, apologies from me. It is shrivedabharathi.in.

    This was created by Dr. Avadhaanulu who is a doctorate in vedas, sanskrit, memaamsa e.t.c. He is preserving and propogating our sanskrit, vedas and vedic maths. He is making audio recordings of vedas. This organisation is funded by central government and foriegn members. His work is great and one should see it. If you see it useful, it may be useful for your blog I think so. Incase found any wrong please forgive me.

    Hi.. could you please throw light on the use of the colon ( : ) after a word in Sanskrit. What does it signify? And can it be used for every noun? For instance, God?
    Thanks

    • gshah says:

      This colon is called “visarga”. The rules for usage of the visarga can be found in ashtadhyayi, but they are very complex and can’t be explained on a blog. But you can still use the visarga correctly, if you memorize all the vibhaktis and lakaars. Note that the visarga does NOT signify any particular thing. it is just like, say, the vowel ‘e’. Does the usage of the vowel ‘e’ in a word signify anything ? Similarly, the usage of visarga also does not signify anything, but to use it correctly you need to know the rules of grammar, just as to use ‘e’, you need to know correct spellings.

      • vipul says:

        One of the advantages that I have heard are that pronouncing visarg makes you do a bit of Kapalbhati Pranayam every time. If you are speaking in sanskrit you will end up doing kapalbhati without even knowing it. The benefits of the pranayam are very well known and this goes to further demonstrate how sanskrit is meant to be a real language not just meant for communication but also cleansing, healing and keeping one focused, along with much more.

        • gshah says:

          Having said that, I have observed, most people pronounce the visarga in a wrong way (and hence do not do kapalbhati). They pronounce रामः as रामह​. But the fact is that visarga cannot be replaced by any other letter. It has an altogether independent pronunciation. (which of course, I can not write here.)
