Words from the Language of 330 Million Gods.

dhyāyato viṣayānpuṃsaḥ saṅagasteṣupajāyate।

saṅagatsaṃjāyate kāmaḥ kāmātkrodho’bhijāyate॥

Bhagavad Gitaa

This is a Mantra or you can say a Sacred Utterance, if chanted 1000 times daily one could get anything he is longing for, like the Jin of Aladin.

Ok wait.. Just kidding, that wasn’t a Mantra, That was a Shloka from the Bhagavad Gita which means “Thinking of objects, attachment to them is formed in a man. From attachment longing, and from longing anger grows”. Now tell me honestly, for a second you must be wondering “Oh my God what I have found today”. Ok I apologize for the jest and for the title too, because 330 Million Gods isn’t a joke right, but in Hindu beliefs there really exists 330 Million Gods. And the sacred scriptures are written in Sanskrit. So I assume that the language of Indian gods must be Sanskrit.

Now the best part is, there are some regular English words which are derived from Sanskrit, and in conclusion you are indirectly using the language that is spoken by the Gods. Wow!!! Ok Don’t feel yourself as a God now.

Ok sorry, I forgot the regular intro. Hi everyone… I hope everyone is fine and having a great time.So let’s start without much more chaff….

Mother

Original Sanskrit word Matr which means Mother, derived via Latin word Mater.

Father

Original Sanskrit word Pithr which means Father, derived via Latin word Pater.

Original Sanskrit word Bhrathr which means Brother, derived via Greek word Phrater.

That’s all for today, as there maybe thousands or words in English which may have originated from Sanskrit and still undiscovered. These are just some normally used English words that everyone uses regularly.

Now, In conclusion everyone in this world is our brother or sister from different mother as the root of our mother tongue is probably the same, so let’s spread peace and harmony. And Now you know that you regularly speak some words that Gods themselves use so let me know in the comments how you felt. And if you have read till now Thank you so much and see you in the next blog with some interesting facts. Till then spread love and stay safe.
