Each week, the Sanskrit class I attend opens with us singing “Naiva Klishta Na Cha Kadhina.” I love the song and it frequently plays in my head during the day and during the night.
Last week I found it on YouTube.
I asked my teacher what the words meant and he suggested that members of the class translate it. One of the other students and I are going to do that. As you can see below, there are lots of verses.
I finished my attempt at translating the first verse. It appears to be a list of some of the qualities of Sanskrit.
lovely, easy to understand, universally agreeable to the mind.
elegant, beloved, to be enjoyed
not obscure and not difficult
I look forward to working on the other verses. And I am also looking forward to seeing what my classmate comes up with!
