For those who are not directly involved with Shibumi, some of the names appearing in our recent blog posts were probably confusing. Pallav, Kiri, Tarang and Isaura are the names of our four age-wise student groups.
The youngest group is named Pallav, which in Sanskrit refers to ‘young shoots and leaves’.
Kiri, the next group, is a Cambodian word for ‘mountain’.
Then comes Tarang, Sanskrit for ‘wave’,
and finally the senior most group — Isaura, a Greek word meaning ‘soft air’.
The staff group is named Dharitri, which is Sanskrit for ‘earth’, but we rarely have to use this group name!
Nice posting. Do you know about these Sanskrit books?
