Dedicated to learning Sanskrit, the cardinal aim of this blog is to give the reader direct access to ancient Scriptures, Śāstras, Literature, Philosophy and so on. The approach is primarily grammatical, but opinion pieces will inevitably feature. I approach the Scriptures with respect, but from a historical, social and mythical point of view. If you are looking for swooning devotion, this is not the blog for you.
हे ब्रह्मन्, क्या बृहस्पति का मिठास से भरपूर वचन भी वचनों के परम अमृत को बनाने वाले तुम्हारे लिये विस्मयकारक है? हे पुरमथन, मेरी बुद्धी तो "तुम्हारे गुणगान के पुण्य से इस वाणी कॊ पुनीत करूंगा" इस अर्थ में निश्चित है ।
O brahman! is even the speech of Brihaspati, rich in sweetness, a matter of wonder to you, [who] are the author of the most excellent nectar of words [i.e. Veda]? O destroyer of [the three] cities, I [will] purify my speech by the merit which accrues from the description of your qualities - it is with this aim that my mind is resolved [on this composition].
