I'm proud to say that my daughter can recite the Gayatri mantra (one of the oldest Sanskrit mantras) by heart: Om bhur bhuvah suvaha tat savitur varenyam bhargo devasya dheemahi dhiyo yo na prachodayath.
"Mudra--symbolic or ritual gesture in Hinduism and Buddhism. While some mudrās involve the entire body, most are performed with the hands and fingers." And here I am thinking it's an "okay" symbol. What does the mudra mean?
Sanskrit is considered to be the oldest language of the gods, as it is made up of the primordial sounds. Today, Sanskrit is the classical language of Indian and the liturgical language of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism.
