## Lesson 36. Introduction to Numbers.

Let's first get introduced to the numerals. Just 1 - 10 for the time being.
Numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4 have different number names for the three genders. 5
onwards, it is all the same.

## So "three men in a boat" would be translated into : : |

Three women on television would be : : |

## Three fruits in a basket would be | ( : = basket.)

And we'd have a : : E" on the seashore watching

the sun set slowly, the sky aflame in a blaze of orange melting slowly into a
deep enduring blue.

The farmer.
Madhav is a farmer. His life is filled with hard work. He wakes up everyday at
Brahma-muhurt. Having taking his bath and doing his japa and pooja, Madhav
eats breakfast at 6: o'clock . Every morning, he goes to the field after
sunrise. Before noon, he plows the field with the help of two bullocks.
At noon, his wife, Malini, comes to the field with lunch. He eats only two
chapatis and an onion. In the afternoon, he rests under the banyan tree for
some time and then works again.
In the evening, at 5: 15, he washes his bullocks and gives them time to rest. At
6:30 he gives his bullocks food to eat and clean water to drink. At 5 minutes
to 7, he comes back home. After having washed his face, hands and feet, he
prays to the Lord. At 7: 45, he eats his dinner. In the night, at 8:25, he goes
to sleep.

## Lesson 40. The Moon on my Head.

How else can i ensure that you click onto my lessons? i have to concoct titles

Time to work on our ending words.
The masculine nouns, which will go like

E"SX"_"o

## the one who lives in the heavens.... God,

Brahma, the Creator,
The Rishi Durvasa,
The One who lives in the forest .... a Rishi.
The feminine words like ( dawn) , and ( Apsara... Heavenly
nymphs) are also declined like E"SX"_"o |
The neuter nouns, which will go like ( meaning both water and milk), will
include words like

mind

\"E"_"o speech
O"uG"_"o Brightness/ Splendour
fame

S"W"_"o

sky

darkness
lake
cloth
age
Certain neuter words are declined in a slightly different manner. Our standard
for this set is meaning "a bow"... as in an arrow and bow.
Words that will be declined like it are:

age,

## Level 1 - Month 8 lessons 36 -40 B

www.chitrapurmath.net

244/249

## Step by Step Sanskrit Learning Programme Month 8

E"b"s_"o

eye

body
The word is an adjective. It means " better than". This is declined in a

different manner. The masculine will go like , the feminine like and
the neuter like |

, , . youngest
, , ... oldest
GY"pY"_"o, GY"pY"_"r, GY"pY"_"o ...eldest
, , ... loved.

## So we need to only have the masculine declined words in our Supplement.

Whenever you come across these ending words, you can look up
Supplement 30, to figure out what they mean. Our exercises will only deal
with the simple, commonly used words like moon, head, mind etc.
