October 27, 2010

“San or Chan”,  in Tamil denotes somethings that exist in groups/multiples, many meaning united, some claim this to be of  Sanskrit origin,  We will see the many words claimed to be of Sanskrit origin that has “San” are actually also in  Tamil and “San” and  “Sa” came from the root sound  “ச்” + “அ”  or “Cha” meaning  joined with. in Tamil.

We will see the list of words containing “San” in Tamil.

(One who (பொருள் சேர்) learns/understands the true meaning of God Who do not belongs to the two extremes that brings darkness, will only be called as a true achiever)

The two extremes could be “Kedu” – Suffering/Loosing everything and “Perukkam” – Having/Gaining too much without considering others.
