सीताया: पतये नम:

Tue, 05/29/2012 - 12:37
This is apart from the discussion on the correctness of सीताया: पतये नम: .
I have heard in a kathaakalakshepam by the well known Anantharama Dikshitar the explanation of why these different names are used denoting one person i.e. Srirama.

Doubt about visarga

Fri, 05/25/2012 - 22:48

अ: - aha
आ: - aaha
इ: - ihi..
ए: - ye-hey
*ऐ: - ai-hi*
ओ: - oho
*औ: - au-hu*

here, for ऐ औ, the visarga doesn't go similar to the svara. The doubt

सीतायाः पतये नमः

Thu, 05/24/2012 - 16:11
I have a doubt in the following verse
रामाय रामभद्राय रामचन्द्राय वेधसे ।
रघुनाथाय नाथाय सीतायाः पतये नमः।।
in the above sloka सीतायाः पतये is wrong. It should be सीतापतये or सीतायाः

Dear Sirs,
A friend of mine has come across a ganapati stotra in which the last line
has the word स्युर्वरोमतः which he has requested the meaning of. (could it
be construed as स्युः + वरः + मतः ??? I ask a boon वरः for my progeny may
they be always be engaged निरताः स्युः ( विध्यर्थ) in your worship?)
