Sanskrit Sandhi Rules

5 min - Tutorial

There are always exceptions to the rule. James explains how we will encounter places in Chapter 2 of the Bhagavad Gita where the verses can be recited in more than one way—with the intention of facilitating a clear and easy recitation for the listener. He offers examples to help us understand, introducing us to a feature in Sanskrit called Sandhi, where the ending of a word can sometimes change or is split to accommodate the next word that follows it. He assures us that both ways are correct.

Follow along with the attached PDF's: the transliteration of Chapter 2, Sanskrit Recitation and Metre, and Sanskrit Alphabet.
