I need help with in translating the following two sentences. Could someone please help. I find correlatives tricky although I do try to render it into Hindi first as I find this helps:

 

"I am satisfied with the fruit I get in this forest"

 

is it by any chance, "yAni phalAni etasmin vane ahaM vindAmi, taiH (phalaiH) aham tuShyAmi"

 

Is the phalaiH necessary?

 

Also, what's the translation of "I praise the clouds which wander in the sky, because the clouds give us water"

 

(how does one deal with 'because' as it doesn't appear to be a simple equivalent to the Hindi 'kyonki'?!)

 

Many thanks

Om Shri Raamachandra parabrahmane namah

 

It is apparent that you are familiar with English. There is a simple Samskrit book " Learn Sanskrit in 30 days" published by Balaji Publications, Madras (Chenai) 600014.

This book is available from HareKrishna Book stores. Please look for the website on "SanskritBharati". Please contacr me by email rgajavada@aol.com, I will be of some use.

 

Sincerely yours Raam

You know, something like those travel language series that teach you french while you're driving a car.

 

 

That's very dangerous. Safety first.

If you learn a language it is very important to use the language. Sanskrit seems to be an exception. Most people learn Sanskrit just to recite verses or to read scriptures. That is fine, but you have to speak Sanskrit if you want to be fluent in that language.

In the grammar of Panini Sanskrit is called “Bhasha”, from the verbal root “bhash” which means to speak.

There are still many people who know to speak fluently correct Sanskrit. No ascetics or hermits but people who are active in the worldly life.

The first thing what we have to do is to change and modernize the teaching methods for Sanskrit.

The Sanskrit department of the SriAurobindo ashram in Pondicherry publishes good books to learn practical spoken Sanskrit. There is also a Samskritha Bharathi in Bangalore which is active to promote practical Sanskrit.

What is the meaning of MAHAN?

 

Is it related to 'Great'? Brahman is also understood to mean 'Great' - What would be the difference in contextual meaning?

 

How does its meaning differ from 'mahat':the 'feeling of existence': i.e. one of the nine principles of the human form?

 

MAHAN (accompanied by the Paramatman)is said be Witness of every human birth. Paramatman is Brahman, therefore what different aspects are they representing
