Sanskrit even heals!

If there’s one language I would have chosen to learn from heart, then that would be the sacred sanskrit. I have come to believe that the words pronounced in sanskrit essentially create certain vibrations that further exemplifies in energies beneficial to our body, mind and soul. Like for example the Gayatri Mantra!

I am taken a back by the wisdom found in the sanskrit stotrams. Most of them are finest composition of metaphors, that have the potential to resonate with each one of us at different phases of our lives and with different meanings at same time. They are absolutely filled with astute wit.

I have been learning nirvana shatakam and several others. In there, If one observes the magnified impressions upon each given word in the verses, it certainly provokes our consciousness to reflect upon the universal truth.  Its a divine poem infused with grace and wisdom.

Nirvana Shatakam

I feel so disappointed sometimes thinking that I could never fully learn the essence of sanskrit language due to lack of time and discipline required. At this moment of life, there are thousand other things knocking at my door, things that are mundane, commercial and promise basic survival.

However, if not learning the language itself, it is still convenient to take one strotra at a time, or per week, study it, reflect upon it and embrace all that it delivers to nourish our souls. The spiritual appetite is never left unattended by the universe. 🙂

  1. Learning from the wisdom of our ancestors truly validates our existence as a species, and personally brings us closer as individuals to the connected spirit of human existence and success. Even if you can only experience it a bit at a time, that is so much better than never having known….

      • I often worry or wonder the same thing…. But then think, that these traditions and words and ways have been passed down, they are not lost to the darkness of obliteration like every book in The Library at Alexandria was, or like the deeds of great warriors from small and extinct tribes….And there are people like us, right now, learning and pondering and meditating. Where two people unconnected by anything else can agree on things like what you wrote, then there must be hundreds more out there….

        We shall strive, and continue.

      • Thanks for being so optimistic. I’m also grateful to the modern technology that has helped me source the information from the very far corner of this world. ( for example even websites like amazon have helped me stack books that I wouldn’t have known otherwise a decade ago) Unlike earlier where the only way was to give up current life and shift to mountains to meet those wise men. 🙂
