I find this world a fascinating place

Sanskrit is a fucking incredible language.


"Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu" actually means "May all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute to this."

Not many languages could say that in four words.

And what an incredible thing to wish upon the world. It’s not just all people on earth, it’s literally every life form currently in existence, and it’s practically an oath to try and contribute to their happiness and freedom from suffering in any way you can.
