One of the things I am passionate about is learning Sanskrit. There is a meditative verse that is often sung at Sanskrit events. In this song, students pledge dedication to their Sanskrit studies. I am going to begin this post by singing that verse. Please forgive any mispronunciation; some Sanskrit letters are still difficult for me to say correctly.
शुक्रवासरे अष्टाविंशत्-दिनांके -November-मासे भारतं गमिष्यामि
On Friday November 28, I will go to India.
द्विवादने विमानपत्तनं चालिष्यामि
At 2:00 I will drive to the airport.
पञ्चवदने भारतं-प्रति मम विमानं उड्डयनं करिष्यति
At 5:00 towards India my plane will be flying.
अष्टाविंशति-दिनाङ्के अश्रमं आगमिष्यामि
In 24 hours to the ashram I will come.
प्रति-आगमन-प्र्यन्तं मम Seattle-गृहे रमणः वसिष्यति
Until I return in my Seattle house Ramana will live.
Thank you Ramana
दशम-दिनांके January मासे मम विमानं Trivandrum-नगरतः Seattle-पर्यन्तं उड्डयिष्यति
On January 10 my plane will fly from Trivandrum to Seattle.
I will return to my Seattle home.
