    Ati Uttam!
    Please include following shloka under ‘kaliyugam’ and ‘aikyam’ –

    Krute mantra prayoge vaa, tretaayaam tantra saadhane
    Dwaapare vyuha rachane, shaktih sanghe hi saa kalou

    • slabhyankar अभ्यंकरकुलोत्पन्नः श्रीपादः May 11, 2010 at 11:29 am

      I think, in Devanagaree it would read as follows –
      कृते मन्त्र-प्रयोगे वा त्रेतायां तन्त्र-साधने ।
      द्वापारे व्यूहरचने शक्तिः संघे हि सा कलौ ॥

      It would be good to give the source for the quotation and also a translation in English.

      This seems to speak of शक्तिः, strength or rather how the strength will happen in different Yuga’s.
      कृते मन्त्र-प्रयोगे वा = (Strength is gained) in kRuta-yuga by mantraa’s or
      त्रेतायां तन्त्र-साधने = in Tretaa-yuga by techniques and technical equipment
      द्वापारे व्यूहरचने = in Dwaapaara-yuga by strategies
      शक्तिः संघे हि सा कलौ = in Kali-yuga by team-work.

      I think Shri Raam is deity or incarnation of kRuta Yuga and ShrikRuShNa is deity or incarnation of dwaapaara-yuga. Which is the deity or incarnation of tretaaa-yuga, which is suposed to have elapsed after kRuta-yuga and before dwaapaara-yuga ?

      शुभमस्तु | = May God bless!!

      • Sanskṛtasya November 8, 2011 at 12:58 pm

        Dear Abhynakar-ji,

        Kṛta·yuga is synonym for Satya·yuga. Dāśarathī Rāma was born in Tretā·yuga according to our scritpures.

        Thanks.! (For, you too are doing a great work for Sanskrit :-))

    • jack August 20, 2010 at 11:25 pm

      how do you write sewa in sanskrit.


    • Rossana February 22, 2011 at 8:14 pm

      Hi there,

      I’ve had something translated from English to Sanskrit and would like to find somebody who could proofread it to make sure it is correct. I know you must be very busy but if you could just guide me in the right direction I would really appreciate it.

      It is meant to say “From the muddiest waters grow the most beautiful lotuses/loti”.

      This is the translation I have been given:

      āvilatamāj jalāt sudarshanatamāḥ padmāḥ santi

      आविलतमाज्जलात्सुदर्षनतमाः पद्माः सन्ति

      I would really apprecaite it if you could help me out.

      • Rossana February 22, 2011 at 8:15 pm

        Any help would be appreciated!

      • Karthik Raman February 28, 2011 at 1:23 pm

        The translation sounds fine, except that it should be सुदर्शन instead of सुदर्षन।

        Also, santi could be replaced by jAyante (जायन्ते).

        You might also want to ask this on learnsanskrit.wordpress.com

      • hnbhat April 13, 2011 at 5:24 pm

        पङकतमादेव दर्शनीयानि पङ्कजानि जायन्ते will be correct interpretation.

        The name पङ्कज itself gives the meaning born out of muddy water and it is not used to pearls or any other aquatic products.

        And the word पद्म would be better used in neuter gender to mean lotus if you mean it to avoid ambiguity though it can be used according to lexicons, in masculine also.

  2. Avijit Lahiri February 22, 2007 at 7:26 am

    I want to know the full shloka for –
    “Chakrabat Paribartante Sukhani Cha Dukhani Cha”

    I would much appreciate if anyone can help me about this and let me know the entire shloka.

    This early morning, I almost feel like I have found a pot of gold (epecially checking Kalidasa)! Thankyou so much for all the wonderful hard work. It is a great service to the language and to the people who love the language but have given up due to various reasons!

  4. Ray Molacha April 27, 2007 at 2:16 am


    Wonderful. I love it. I wish I remembered enough to respond in sanskrit. You inspire me to dust off my books.

    I think a great pit of information to include in your “About” page would be how you compose the devanagari and the transliterated text. What system you recommend. Do you use a WordPress plugin? What else? Sometimes I use Baraha. I would like to start something similar for my favorite shlokas and bhajans, so I would appreciate any hints very much. (Setting up a server etc. is no problem. I just want advice about the devanagari and translit.)


  5. Himanshu Pota May 1, 2007 at 10:07 am


    I use Itranslator2003. It works with ITRANS encoding scheme. You can save text in Unicode or html or rtf format. I have put together some notes at: http://www.ee.adfa.edu.au/staff/hrp/personal/Sanskrit-External/unicodenotes.html . Please have a look.

    I will be most pleased to assist you.

    Excellent collection!
    Keep up the good task 🙂

  7. Chandrasekar Raghu July 6, 2007 at 2:41 am


    This is an excellent web site, a real treasure house indeed. It helps me in a great way since I am using a number of subhaashitaani here to teach samskrtam to young children.

    I suggest you also open up a samskrtam drama section where people could post some short skits for kids to get them to converse in samskrtam.

    vadatu samskrtam,
    jayatu samskrtam,
    jayatu manukulam,
    samskrtena sambhaashanam kuru!
    jeevanasya parivartanam kuru!

    Thanks for your comments. I will try and post some play-like thing as soon as I can lay my hands on something like that!


  9. Chandrasekar Raghu July 6, 2007 at 8:36 pm

    You may want to add the following subhasshitam under aarogyam:

    About eating discipline…

    poorayet asanena ardham
    trteeyam udakena tu
    vayos sancharanaarthaaya
    chaturtham avaseshayet

    While eating food, one should fill only half the stomach with solids. The third quarter is for water (or liquids), and the remaining fourth quarter is to be left empty so that the food and liquids have room to move around and mix with the air.

    A delightful experience to visit your site.
    Congratulations to those who worked to make it a success!
    I would like to leave a sloka but I have no access any other key board than the one I am using.

    Here’s a new one about a “True Friend”:

    paapaan nivaarayati yojayate hitaaya
    guhyam cha goohati gunaan prakatee karoti
    aapadgatam cha na jahaati dadaati kale
    sanmitra lakshanam idam pravadanti santaH

    He restrains his friend from committing sins, induces his friend to do good deeds, conceals the unseemly secrets of his friend, projecting only his good qualities to others, does not desert his friend in difficulties, but gives timely assistance – saints describe these as characteristics of a true friend.

    ” Ekadasyaam ahoraatram kartavyam bhojanatrayam”
    Please if you know the complete sloka of this, send me to my mail as soon as possible.

  13. Carl August 1, 2007 at 12:11 am

    Thanks a lot for this blog Karthik. I hope to start something similar in the near future. I may need your help with Sanskrit fonts, etc then.

    Could you henceforth also post the sources of the different subhASitANI?

    Thanks again.

  14. Karthik August 7, 2007 at 8:43 am

    The sources are in general varied.. it’s from some old book, memory, an internet site and so on… Will try and post the sources as and when I can… Good luck with your site .. will surely help!

  15. mansi shah September 7, 2007 at 1:29 pm

    Can i know the sanskrit version of “Health is Wealth”?

  16. Chandrasekar Raghu October 3, 2007 at 7:02 pm


    I think I found a new one:

    Na abhisheko na samskaarah simhasya kruyate vane
    vikramaarjitasatvasya swayameva mrugendrataa

    (Meaning: There is no official coronation ceremony held to declare the lion as the king of the jungle. He becomes king by his own attributes and heroic actions. Similarly, in our own life, when working towards some goal, we should not merely “demand” it. Rather we should try to “earn” the goal through our own good deeds and efforts. It is through our own hard work that we achieve.)

    Thanks to “Tattva” – International monthly magazine for the Hindu Yuva – http://www.hinduyuva.org/tattva

  17. Chandrasekar Raghu October 9, 2007 at 10:23 pm


    Hope this is new…

    chaayaamanyasya kurvanti tishThanti swayamaatape
    phalaanyapi paraarthaaya vrikshaah satpurushaah iva

    Trees are like good people. They themselves stand in the heat and make shade for the others. Their fruits are also for the benefit of the others.

    A person who is not related to us (stranger) but who helps us in difficulty is [indeed] our relative. Similarly, a relative who does us ill should be considered a stranger.

    Can i please have the above translated without the section below, as i would like to have this enscribed onto a piece of jewellery for my mother and can’t fit it all on…

    This is just like our own body’s disease, which is an stranger (enemy) to us, while a medicinal plant that grows in a forest (elsewhere) does good to us

    thanks so much, this is a gorgeous site well done

  21. Goutam November 25, 2007 at 2:57 am

    I am searching for a slokam (subhashitam) that ends with “Samam shakthi parakramaiH”. If any body know it, please post it.

  22. Raghunandanan December 4, 2007 at 12:48 pm

    नमस्ते। स्वस्तिरस्तु॥ namaste. swastiH astu.

    I am student of Sanskrit and started self study last year only. So please forgive the errors in the following sentences. सत्यमेव जयते इति मन्त्रस्य शब्दप्रयोगे मम संशयः जातः। तस्य निवारणार्थं भवतः साहाय्यं प्रार्थये। उदरनिमित्तं बहुकृतवेषमित्याप्तवाक्यस्य प्रमाणं स्वीकृत्य सौदि अरेबियायां देशे प्रवासजीवितं करोमि इदानीम्। अतः एव एतत् पत्रं लिखितम्।
    That makes it very difficult to get Sanskrit books for reference. Would you be kind enough to clear my doubt about the wording of the under mentioned mantra?

    सत्यमेव जयते नानृतं सत्येन पन्था विततो देवयानः।
    येनाक्रमन्त्यृषयो ह्याप्तकामा यत्र तत्सत्यस्य परमं निधानम्॥
    [From Mundakopanishat Ch 3 Section1 Mantra 6]

    [satyameva jayate naanRutaM satyena panthaa vitato devayaanaH| yenaakramantyRuShayo hyaaptakaamaa yatra tatsatyasya paramaM nidhaanam||]

    My source for this is the internet where I find different versions for the beginning of the second stanza as follows:
    येनाक्रम्न्त्यऋषयो / येनाक्रमन्ति ऋषयो [yenaakramantyaRuShayo / yenaakramanti RuShayo]

    My patchy knowledge of Sanksrit leads me to believe that “येनाक्रमन्ति ऋषयो – yenakramanti Rushayo” is the correct wording. Is there a Sandhi rule in use here इ[i] + ऋ[Ru] to make it read as येनाक्रमन्त्यर्षयो – yenakramantyarShayo?

    You may reply by email to me or publish it here as per your discretion.

    Thank you and best wishes.

    Also, to my brothers and sisters who are asking question on how to type sanskrit letters, please use http://www.google.com/transliterate/indic/

    You can type sanskrit in hindi (both are devanagari scripts)

    • ramu November 25, 2009 at 12:37 am

      Your link is a on-line. Here is one you can use off-line.

      One can also download a small wonderful (free) programme from http://www.baraha.com and type any vernacular language (including sanskrit) phonetically and that too in Unicode. and also can convert from one script to another using that. Also one may try ITrans.

      You may try that.

    विजानन्तोऽप्येते वयमिह विपज्जालजटिलान् न मुञ्चामः कामानहह गहनो मोहमहिमा॥
    Like a moth falling in fire, not knowing its burning power;
    Or like the fish caught in ignorance by the baited hook;

    We, despite knowing the dangers, do not renounce sensual pleasures.

    Like a tigress, fearsome is old age. Illnesses attack the body like enemies.

    Life flows like water from a leaky vessel. Yet, is it not a wonder that man engages in actions not conducive to well-being?

    Great job! But, I have an academic curiosity.

    I came here through the Blogg Roll Link for ‘शुभाषितानि’

    My understanding is that the word is ‘सुभाषितानि’.

    Can you please correct me if I am wrong?

    Thank you.


  39. Ashish Dabral October 12, 2008 at 11:23 am

    Its Excelliant.. Without any Doubt.. I believe we have to arrange these shlokas in more interective manner. Home page should be small and should have link to different type of shloka with detail discription… Whatever is there now is not less then anything.. Its Simply EXCELLIANT.

  40. Ram November 14, 2008 at 7:30 pm

    Vidya, I hope this help.
    Second one सुभाषितानि is right.
    Use su and not shu
    plural form of subhAShita.

    Absolutely delightful. How come some letters with questions about meanings and completion remain unanswered?

    • Karthik January 20, 2010 at 11:19 am

      Mostly, it’s because I haven’t been able to find the corresponding shloka, or merely, haven’t had enough time to dig deep… I would be glad if some of the visitors fill in the blanks 🙂

    I don’t know if this is acceptable. But can you please provide transla and literation of the material under Sanskrit wisdom?

    • Karthik January 26, 2010 at 5:35 pm

      Well, I don’t think it would be possible for me to translate/transliterate the lovely stuff from Sanskrit Wisdom. I do ask them from translations from time to time and they do it; maybe that’s what you should try. There may also be some online transliterator available. You can use some online dictionaries (such as spokensanskrit.de, webapps.uni-koeln.de/tamil/ – Monier Williams). They write in nice simple Sanskrit, which you should be able to get a hang of pretty soon…

    I don’t know if these verses have placed here earlier.
    Jeevana grahane namraah:gruheetva punarunnadaah:
    Kim kanishtaaha: kimu jyeshtaah:
    kateeyantrasya durjanaah:
    Who is eder and who is younger between the waterdispenser(the barrel that goes down to fetch water from below and pours it out on being raised) and the wicked?The wicked too,bow down to get their wishes fulfilled. They hold their heads aloft in pride they rise in position.
    Drudadhara nibadha mushte; kosha nishannasya sahaja malinasya;
    Krupanasya krupaanasya cha kevalam aa kaarato bedah:
    Krupana- miser and krupaana -knife differ from each other by merely an aa kaaram. They are same in nature.The knife must be held tithtly by the fist. The miser is indeed tight fisted.The knife is held in its holder-kosha.The miser clings on to his kosha -treasury.As the knife is made of iron it is black in nature.The miserto save the cost of washing clothes is always badly dressed.

    Excellent job! I’m a beginner, but I’m going to visit your blog a lot in the future to practice. Keep up the good work!

    I’d like to invite beginners who are starting to learn Sanskrit to have some fun at a lottery I’ve set up on my blog at http://classlang.org/2010/06/24/lottery-win-a-set-of-devanagari-keyboard-stickers/ You can win a set of Devanagari keyboard stickers which are very helpful (I’m a beginner too and I use them on my laptop). Cheers and good luck!

    It is a very good site. thanks to all members involved in making this site so knowledgeable.
    The best thing I liked was that all shloks are catagorised under headings. Thanks once again.

    This is a wonderful website.
    I would really appreciate if you can guide me to a book/place where I can find the roots of a word (Dhathus if I am correct).
    Eg: Agre niyathi iti Agnihi, jaayathe gachathe iti jagath, gaayantham rayatheethi Gayatri etc.
    Thanks in advance.

    Its me, Arun. Here is my request to the blog runner or whoever thinking of helping me out with…
    I’m studying MSc (IV Sem) Chemistry at National Institute of Technology Karnataka (NITK). I’m thinking of doing M.A in Sanskrit thru’ correspondance, parallel to my PhD in the future. Which is the best university where I can take up MA programme in “Samskr’tam”.
    My native is Sringeri. There is a division of RaashTreeya Samskr’ta Mahavidyaala. But I don’t think they would offer corresponding Aachaarya (M.A)
    Plz let me know, which would be better.

    बहवः धन्यवादानि 🙂

    Hi, Its me, Arun.

    Here is a request to the blog runner, or whoever wishing to help me out…

    I’m studying IV sem MSc Chemistry at National Institute of Technology Karnataka (NITK). I ‘m thinking of pursuing M.A in Samskr’tam, parallel to my PhD in future. Can you please let me know which is the best university for taking up M.A in Samskr’tam, thru’ distance learning programme. I have studied Samskr’tam as a langauage for my BSc.

    My native is Sringeri. There is a division of RaaSTreeya Samskr’ta Mahaavidyaalayam. But I don’t think it would offer Aachaarya (MA) there.

    I ‘d be very grateful for you if you could let me know about the university.

    बहवः धन्यवादानि 🙂

    One very interesting aspect of this they have a site for promoting the self-study of Sanskrit. See the link: http://acharya.iitm.ac.in/sanskrit/tutor.php
    I have saved 12 lessons from this site in pdf format and can send them to you as attachments to e-mail. Please send me your ( the blog’s) email so I can send them. Or let me know how to join this blog so I can post it here directly.

    This is quoted often as coming from Valmiki Ramayana. Does anyone know the exact reference? (chapter, verse) देह-बुद्ध्य तु दसोऽस्मि जिव-बुद्ध्य त्वदम्शकः। आत्म-बुद्ध्य त्वमेवहम् इति मे निश्चित मतिः॥
    deha-buddhya tu daso’smi jiva-buddhya tvadamśakaḥ |

    Namaste ji,

    I am looking for the 16 types of wealth – shodasa sampattiH – In tamil we normally bless young ones as ‘Patinarum petru peru vazhvu vazhka’. I am sure there should be a samskritam equivalent. Can you either publish it in your blog or mail me : kali1947@gmail.com


  78. hnbhat May 25, 2013 at 8:25 am

    I don’t think there should be equivalent for every Tamil native expression in Sanskrit Language and I think it is not a wise thing to look for everything in Sanskrit.

  79. Pawan Mishra February 9, 2014 at 3:12 am

    No words of praise or gratitude! Pranam!
    I have been unable to download and apply the fonts for transliteration in to English. How does one do it please.
    Thank you!
