Type your query in the search box above.
This interface supports Sanskrit-to-Sanskrit, Sanskrit-to-English and English-to-Sanskrit koshas. Sanskrit input can be given either using devanagari script or with any of the standard transliteration schemes. You can also select the word from the left menu.
Tips for getting good results:
  • Make sure to remove विभक्तिप्रत्ययाः before searching. For example, instead of searching for "रामस्य", search for "राम".  Similarly, instead of searching for "पठति", search for "पठ्".
  • In order to get all possible results, try out the प्रातिपदिकम् as well as the प्रथमैकवचनम् form. For example, try both - "हनुमत्" as well as "हनुमान्".
  • When searching for words with अनुस्वार, try the परसवर्ण-version as well. For example, search for both "संख्या" as well as "सङ्ख्या".
  • Sometimes, searching with forms having optional द्वित्वम् can also help. For example, "वार्तिक" and "वार्त्तिक".
  • While trying out English queries, use singular forms. For example, instead of 'gods', search 'god'.
  • Do no prefix the English verbs with "to". For example, search for "eat" instead of "to eat". Similarly, avoid tense-specific suffixes like "ed", "ing", "en" etc.
