Sanskrit Alphabets origin from Maheswara Sutras

Maheswara Sutra is the most ancient known Sanskrit alphabet sequence.Sanskrit Alphabets origin are from Maheswara Sutras.
Sanskrit Language, which the Puranas describe as the Language of Gods, was from the sound of Lord Siva’s Damru, a percussion instrument which adorns Lord Siva’s hand.
After completion of His Cosmic dance, Siva sounded His Damaru as the Universe was being created.
These sounds create maintain regulate and destroy the Universe.

Sound are mentioned as the Creative Force of the Universe.

Nada Bindu Kaladi Namo.

A damaru (Skt.damaru; Tibetan ཌཱ་མ་རུ; Devanagari: डमरु) or damru is a small two-headed drum, used in Hinduism and Tibetan Buddhism.Damru is known as the instrument of Lord Shiva. Damru was first created by Shiva to produce spiritual sounds by which this whole universe has been created and regulated…

In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, the damaru is part of a collection of sacred implements and musical instrument was adopted from the tantric practices of ancient India. These reached the Land of Snows from the 8th to 12th century, persisting in Tibet as the practice of Vajrayana flourished there, even as it vanished in the subcontinent of India.
There are two types of Damaru, Skull Damaru and Chod Damaru.

नृत्तावसाने नटराजराजो ननाद ढक्कां नवपञ्चवारम्।
उद्धर्त्तुकामो सनकादिसिद्धादिनेतद्विमर्शे शिवसूत्रजालम्

Shiva Sutras (IAST: Śivasūtrāṇi) or Māheśvara Sūtrāṇi are fourteen verses that organize the phonemes of Sanskrit as referred to in the Aṣṭādhyāyī of Pāṇini, the foundational text of Sanskrit grammar.
A famous verse in Sage Panini’s Ashtadhyayi says that the Panini grammar that is in use now is graced by Lord Shiva. Hence the first known organized sounds are known as the Maheshvara Sutra – Maheshvara being another name of Lord Shiva. Here is the verse from Panini’s Ashta-Dhyayi:

At the end of His Cosmic Dance,
Shiva, the Lord of Dance,
with a view to bless the sages Sanaka and so on,
played on His Damaru fourteen times,
from which emerged the following fourteen Sutras,
popularly known as Shiva Sutras or Maheshvara Sutras

Original Sanskrit 


Within the tradition they are known as the Akṣarasamāmnāya, “recitation of phonemes,” but they are popularly known as the Siva Sutras because they are said to have been revealed to Pāṇini by Shiva. They were either composed by Pāṇini to accompany his Aṣṭādhyāyī or predate him. The latter is less plausible, but the practice of encoding complex rules in short, mnemonic verses is typical of the sutra style.

The fourteen sutras contain all the letters of the Sanskrit varnamala- the svaras (vowels) a, i, u, R^i, lR^i, e, ai, o, au and all the vyanjanas (consonants).
As per the Rig Veda Lord Siva brought this Sanskrit alphabet sequence, and the Sanskrit language to earth. The sounds of the alphabet originated from Lord Siva’s ‘damru’, probably some kind of a sound device.

The Sanskrit alphabet sequence is known as the ‘Varna-mala‘. The word ‘varna‘ (वर्ण) means a ‘syllable‘ and all the energies related to that syllable – colour, presiding force, the mouth part used to pronounce each syllable, the related body part etc.

From these 14 verses, a total of 281 pratyāhāras can be formed: 14*3 + 13*2 + 12*2 + 11*2 + 10*4 + 9*1 + 8*5 + 7*2 + 6*3 * 5*5 + 4*8 + 3*2 + 2*3 +1*1, minus 14 (as Pāṇini does not use single element pratyāhāras) minus 10 (as there are 10 duplicate sets due to h appearing twice); the second multiplier in each term represents the number of phonemes in each. But Pāṇini uses only 41 (with a 42nd introduced by later grammarians, raṆ=r l) pratyāhāras in the Aṣṭādhyāyī.

The Siva Sutras put phonemes with a similar manner of articulation together (so sibilants in 13 śa ṣa sa R, nasals in 7 ñ m ṅ ṇ n M). Economy (Sanskrit: lāghava) is a major principle of their organization, and it is debated whether Pāṇini deliberately encoded phonological patterns in them (as they were treated in traditional phonetic texts called Prātiśakyas) or simply grouped together phonemes which he needed to refer to in the Aṣṭādhyāyī and which only secondarily reflect phonological patterns.
Pāṇini does not use the Siva Sutras to refer to homorganic stops (stop consonants produced at the same place of articulation), but rather the anubandha U: to refer to the palatals c ch j jh he uses cU.

As an example, consider Aṣṭādhyāyī 6.1.77: iKo yaṆ aCi:

  • iK means i u ṛ ḷ,
  • iKo is iK in the genitive case, so it means ‘ in place of i u ṛ ḷ;
  • yaṆ means the semivowels y v r l and is in the nominative, so iKo yaṆ means: y v r l replace i u ṛ ḷ.
  • aC means all vowels, as noted above
  • aCi is in the locative case, so it means before any vowel.

Hence this rule replaces a vowel with its corresponding semivowel when followed by any vowel, and that is why dadhi together with atra makes dadhyatra. To apply this rule correctly we must be aware of some of the other rules of the grammar, such as:

  • 1.1.49 ṣaṣṭhii sthaneyogaH that shows that the genitive case in a sutra shows what is to be replaced
  • 1.1.50 sthane ‘ntaratamaH that shows that the substitute of i is the semivowel that most closely resembles i, namely ‘y’
  • 1.1.71 aadir antyena sahetaa that shows that i with the K at the end stands for i u ṛ ḷ because the Shiva sutras read i u ṛ ḷ K.

Also, rules can be debarred by other rules. Rule 6.1.101 akas savarNe dīrghaH teaches that when the two vowels are alike a long vowel is substituted for both, so dadhi and indraH make dadhīndraH not *dadhyindraH. The akas savarṇe dīrghaH rule takes precedence over the iKo yaṆ aCi rule because the akas is more specific.

We can invoke and heal by reciting each different syllable of the ‘varnamala‘ .
Maheswara Sutra as a healing mantra too as mentioned above a healing mantra and is was chanted to revive the sick or dying

    I could not find this reference on the links on bottom of the blog.

    I would like to know which chapter and which sutra of Aṣṭādhyāyī we are talking about.

    Could you please help?

    Once again, thank a lot!

      I have updated references. Bottom 3-4 are source but as author I changed when written for blog. Thank you again. These works are not human . They come from other universe which we do not know until get real meditations experience or after death from this earthly body. So really there is nothing real in this earth if you consider other shadow of self immortal in universe. It is really me talking to a 1 st grade kid explaining Algebra . I am same but trying to go further. Only proper mental meditation is the way to know real supreme.

        Let me tell you some more ancient Hindu science as looks like you are more interested . Om is the king mantra of Hinduism. It has a numerical representation of 108, the reason why all Hindu rudraksha malas contain 108 beads.

        Sri Yantra geometry was used in the construction of the Egyptian pyramids, whose architects were Maharishis from India.

        A tablet containing this sanskrit verse from Bhagawat Gita of 4000 BC was found in the great Pyramid. It is now in the British Museum. “vasanvsi jeernani yatha vihaya, navani ghrunnati naro parani”.

        This means “as a person puts on new garment, giving up the old ones, the soul similarly accepts a new material body giving up the old and the useless ones”.
        The great pyramid of Cheops Egypt has a base angle 51 deg 49 minutes like the 11000 year old Sri Yantra geometry large pyramid, showing exactly the same relationship between pi and phi . The ratio of the hypotenuse to half the base is phi, the Golden Ratio– or ‘divine proportion’, given by (1 + square-root 5)/2 (its value to five decimal places is 1.61803). It is a sure indication that the Pharaoh’s architects were NOT from Egypt.

        The most difficult part is that all 54 triple intersections meet at the same point. It requires a great deal of intelligence— to draw this on 2D. The Sri Yantra is a union of Shiva and Shakti ( male /female or opposites ) .

        So the number 54 pans out to 108, the divine Hindu number of OM- in sync with the rhythms of time and space and represents perfect totality.

        “OM is this imperishable Word. OM is the universe, and this is the exposition OM. The past, present and the future, all that was, all that is, all that will be is OM. Likewise all else that may exist beyond the bounds of time, that, too, is OM.” ( Verse 1- Mandulya Upanishad 5000 BC )

        54 is the number of Sanskrit alphabets ( my mother tongue Malayalam too ) beaten out by the damaru of Lord Shiva which Panini heard in his meditational trance.On Aug 10th 1990, the Crop circle of the PERFECT Sri Yantra 13.3 miles long lines ( 10 inches wide and 3 inches deep ) , was etched on a wet Mickey basin lake bed, at Alvord desert, overnight and was photographed by a Oregon US airforce pilot.

        It’s location in the desert of eastern Oregon is now a “sacred place” for UFO watchers worldwide who still make the journey to the Mikey Basin to be near the site where Sri Yantra was first discovered.

        Two hillybillys came up and told the press that they made it overnight with ropes and boards . These two MORONS were given a piece of A4 sheet paper, and told to draw a Sri Yantra on it— and take as long as many months as they want. All Hindu mantras are repeated 108 times.

        Sun’s diameter is 108 times that of the earth. The distance between the Earth and Sun is 108 times the diameter of the Sun .

        54 devas and asuras had churned for the amrit or holy nectar.

        There are 108 upanishads. Nataraja’s cosmic dance has 108 Bharatanatyam poses.

        12 rashis and 9 navagrahas of Hindu astrology multiply to 108.. Ayurveda and Kalari talks about 108 marmas.

        Shiva, Ganesha and Krishna has 108 names. The 108 th and heaviest element in the periodic table is Hassium ( 108 protons ) . The rest are too short lived.
        The mind of god represented by the Sri Yantra is cosmic music ( shabda brahman ) resonating through hyperspace.

        The dot in the middle of the Sri Yantra is Bindu, the witness ( consciousness ). The musical analogies of maths , physics , chemistry, quantum particles and contained in this diagram in the form of notation, harmony, melody and notes.Dmitri Ivanovich Mendeleev , the great Russian chemist and inventor formulated the Periodic Law, and the periodic table of elements.

        He was denied a Nobel prize for telling that his table is based on the divine Sanskrit alphabets. Mendeleev, studied Sanskrit at a university in St Petersburg, used Sanskrit prefixes eka, dvi, and tri to name those yet-to-be-discovered elements.

        Mendeleev had expressed his appreciation and debt to the great Sanskrit grammarian Panini of ancient India, who had created sophisticated theories of language based on their discovery of the two-dimensional patterns in basic sounds.

        He had to be punished for praising a coolie race fit to be ruled by the white man, and evil pagan religion.
        Like Nikola Tesla Mendeleev also saw the Sri Yantra in his dreams.

        “I saw in a dream a table where all elements fell into place as required. Awakening, I immediately wrote it down on a piece of paper.” —Mendeleev
        The sound thus produced symbolizes Nada, the cosmic sound of AUM of 7.83 hertz which can be heard during deep meditation. According to Hindu scriptures, Nada is the source of creation.

        The human range is on average from 20 to 20,000 Hz.

        If 300 Hz is played in one ear and 306 hz is played in the other ear via stereo headphones the binaural frequency will be 6 hertz .

        7.83 Hz This is Schumann’s resonance frequency or earth’s heart beat or frequency of Hindu king mantra OM frequency – a sound which cannot be heard by the ears( unless it is a harmonic ) but can be heard by the heart.

        Frequencies of the brain are below 40 hertz. Binaural beats in the theta (4 to 8 Hz) range have been associated with meditation and shamanic states of consciousness. Theta increases creativity, enhances learning, reduces stress, and awakens intuition.
        THE ORIGINAL GOD OF SANATANA DHARMA IS CALLED BRAHMAN – A MORPHOGENETIC CONSCIOUSNESS FIELD, WHICH CANNOT BE SEEN . ISLAM HAS LIFTED THIS CONCEPT.

        brahmIn is a mortal , brahmAn is god.

        There are two paths in Hinduism.

        One is the Advaita ( non-dual ) and the other is Dwaita ( dual ) philosophy of Sanatana Dharma.

        The Advaita looks at God as brahmAn, the intelligent morphogenetic consciousness field — the akasha , the space between the whizzing electrons in an atom.

        An atom is pure energy held together by a intelligent force. The conscious intelligent field lies in the empty space in between the electrons. 99.9999% of every atom is empty space. What we perceive as physical dense matter is actually 99.99 % empty space – large electron fields with very little matter in the center. We live in a universe created of “objects” that are actually 99.99% space.
        The electrons, protons and neutrons are only a small part of the atom. It is the space between them that is, ironically, the “substance.” Within the electromagnetic force of the atom is the key to everything: creation, transmutation . . -limitless power. This intelligent field decides why a electron should remain in a particular orbit. Electrons can change position instantly without taking time. They suddenly appear in another orbit of higher or lower energy or distance from the nucleus.

        Shifting a single electron from an orbit changes the element. Water molecule is H2O. In other words, 2 atoms of Hydrogen and 1 atom of Oxygen. Two gases combine to make a liquid. It is not a material difference: the protons are still protons, the electrons still electrons. When an electron is made to rise up to another shell or orbit and some energy was needed for this shift upwards to be done – this energy is the brahmAn.
        Dimitry Mendeleyev noted that Indian Sanskrit grammarian Panini who could think about this progression in alphabets of a language 7000 years ago . Hydrogen, the simplest atom, has 1 proton in the nucleus and 1 electron in orbit.

        Helium has 2. 3 protons in the nucleus and 3 electrons in orbit is no longer a gas, it is like magic . Lithium, a silver-white light weight metal of atomic number 3 . It goes on and on to Seaborgium, with 106 protons in the nucleus and electron configuration 2-8-18-32-32-12-2.

        Therefore, the difference between all matter is electromagnetic energy created by the different number of these charged particles, not in the basic make up of these particles as individuals. The reason Nitrogen and Oxygen are such different gases cannot be that Nitrogen has 7 protons and 7 electrons and that Oxygen has 8 of each.

        Hence it is the different amount of electromagnetic energy that that one proton and one electron make that changes the substance. The difference is not in the makeup of the particles, but in the space between the particles in orbit (electrons) and the nucleus (with protons). That space is the substance of everything. That space is electromagnetic energy.

        That space is “reality.” That space is the atom. Electromagnetism is the substance of everything. In essence, that “intelligent morphogenetic space” ( brahmAn )is the substance of all structure.

        Quantum Physics which suddenly appeared in the 20th century is the result of ancient Vedic Sanskrit texts being translated by the Christian invaders . These texts are 7000 years old.

        The Dwaita form looks at God as the trinity of creator Brahma , preserver Vishnu and destroyer Shiva –these are intelligent fields again, which we have personalized with female consorts.

        OM is the primordial throb of the universe. It is the sound form of Atma (Consciousness). 
- Maitri Upanishad 5000 BC.

        The Hindu King mantra OM ( shabda brahman ) has been lifted by other religions and races. These lifted versions have zilch magic.

        Christainity has mirrored it as AMEN.

        Islam has mirrored it as 786. When you show the OM symbol into a mirror you can read right to left as 7-8-6.

        Judaism has mirrored it to SHALOM.

        Sikhism has mirrored it to OMKAR.

        In ancient Egypt AMUN was used as a preface to all their gods. Example – the Sun god, Ra, as Amun-Ra, mentioned in old pyramids . Ra ( ravi ) is sun in Sanskrit.
        Now some history not told by western historians
        Putin went to visit Stonehenge at Arkaim when the Russians found the ancient Swastika symbol. The Russian Arkaim Stonehenge is 3000 years older than the British Stonehenge. The original name is ARKOM . Ark is sun is sun in Sanskrit , OM is brahmAn.
        The earth vibrates at 7.83 Hz and so does OM. The primordal vibrations of atoms and molecules is thus represented by OM. When 2 vibrating systems are in resonance with each other, a rise in the amplitude of the waves take place.
        Chanting OM produces a sonorous vibration like the buzz of a mighty transformer. The vibrations produce scalar waves which calms the mind. It produces an antigravity effect on water, due to the science of cymatics , and your body is mostly water.

        Th MMMM humming boosts the production of the magic molecule Nitric oxide in the body. This was known to Indians and documented 7000 years ago. In 1998, three research scientists won the Nobel prize in medicine when they discovered the natural nitric oxide cycle in our cells
        Chanting OM stimulated your Vagus nerve which releases anti-ageing neuro-trasnsmitters.. It helps regenerate your organs and cells by activating stem cells.

        Since life began, the Earth has been surrounding and protecting all living things with a natural frequency pulsation of 7.83 HZ—the ancient Indian 12 starnd maharishis called OM.

        Alpha brain Frequency of 7.83 HZ on the EEG, is also known popularly as Schumann’s Resonance . These frequencies start at 7.8 Hz and progress by approximately 5.9 Hz. (7.8, 13.7, 19.6, 25.5, 31.4, 37.3, and 43.2 Hz.).
        Ohm- 7.83Hz
        Gam – 13.7Hz
        Hleem – 19.6Hz
        Hreem – 25.5Hz
        Kleem – 31.4Hz
        Krowm – 37.3Hz
        Sreem – 43.2Hz

        7.83 HZ or the ALPHA frequency is the gateway that leads into deeper states of consciousness.
        I am the syllable OM…I am the sacred monosyllable…Among words, I am the monosyllable Om—Bhagawat Gita –Lord Krishna 4000 BC
        “The goal which all the Vedas declare, which all austerities aim at, and which men desire when they lead the life of continence … is OM. This syllable Om is indeed Brahman. Whosoever knows this syllable obtains all that he desires. This is the best support; this is the highest support. Whosoever knows this support is adored in the world of Brahma.” – Katha Upanishad I- 5000 BC

        The wisdom of OM has always been beyond the mental faculty nay-perception of the white invader who tried to convert it into a shepherd’s call to his goats to go home at sunset .

        OM is the first mantra in the 4 Vedas and the 108 Upanishads.

        OM is the first mantra and is the sound body of consciousness. OM contains all the sounds in itself.

        OM is the four states of consciousness, as per Patanjali Yoga:—-.
        OM is the waking state or jagrat. Beta brain wave
        OM is the dreaming state or svapna. REM sleep state
        OM is the deep sleep state or sushupti. (dream-less deep sleep state , the delta brain wave)
        Om is the transcendental state or turiya. (beyond all the states) , the fourth has been called nirvana.

        “Om ityetadaksharam idam sarvam, tasyopavyakhyanam bhutam bhavat bhavishyaditi sarvam omkara eva.”- Mandukya Upanishad -5000 BC

        “The Imperishable is OM, and it is ‘all this’. All this, whatever is visible, whatever is cognisable, whatever can come within the purview of sense-perception, inference or verbal testimony, whatever can be comprehended under the single term, creation all this is OM.”
        Matter is created by vibrations. On a macro scale everything is longitudinal sound. On a micro scale every disease is musical disharmony.

        Primal sound is referred to as Shabda Brahman – “God as word”. Closely related to this is the concept of Nada Brahman – “God as sound”.

        Just in case you wonder what is SHABDA and what is NADA – the former is masculine connoting artha ( meaning ) while the latter is feminine signifying the voiced sound .

        Music is Nada.

        The fundamental structure of the universe is based on Nada or sound vibrations.

        A mantra in its purest form , the inner power , is a manifestation of Nada.

        The movement of prana ( energy ) in the body is an expression of Nada.

        Nada is the celestial music within us. The word Nada is derived from the Sanskrit root nad, meaning “union through sound.”

        Again, Nada refers to the vibrations which make up the sound. Shabda refers to a discreet sound, separate from the meaning it conveys.

        The Nada Yogi sees the whole macrocosmic and microcosmic world as made up of sound. The Nada Yogi experiences the macrocosmic universe as a projection of sound vibrations; the whole world as having developed from sound alone.
        Like I said before, when a damaru is beaten, it produces dissimilar sounds which are fused together by resonance to create one sound. According to our Vedas , Nada is the source of creation.
        In the ancient wisdom of the Sanatana Dharma, the medium of creation is conscious sound vibration.

        “By His utterance came the universe.” (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 1.2.4) 5000 BC.

        Now Nada also contains sounds beyond the human audible range. But these sounds were perceptible to a 12 strand DNA maharishi. Nada is the sound that exists in all Kundalini Chakras. In the heart it exists as Anahata (unstruck sound).

        Shabda and Nada manifested in the cosmic energy of sound give rise to the energies of heat, light and other basic streams of energy existing in the universe. The Nada (cosmic vibration) of the Shabda (eternal sound) is the originator of everything that exists in nature.

        When a damaru is vibrated, it produces dissimilar sounds which are fused together by resonance to create one single sound . When the Damaru is twisted in one revolution, it often makes the sounds of three successive tones.

        Panini formulated the rules of Sanskrit morphology, syntax and semantics in fourteen verses, from the sounds of Lord Shiva’s Damaru, called Maheshwara Sutrani. These Sutras are also known as Aṣṭadhyayi, meaning eight chapters, the foundational text of the grammatical branch of the Vedanga. The knowledge of Shabda BrahmAn – Nada BrahmAn is thus the most important branch of the Indian school of spirituality. .

    WOW!

    All of this explanation is absolutely amazing and will help me in my next papers, for sure!

    I’m really flattered with all your attention! Thank you so much for your time and consideration, my friend.

    Additionally, I would like to thank you for the link you posted, too.

    So as you are being so attentive to me, in advance I would like to apologize for the insistence, but one thing is not clear for me yet, regarding the Māheśvarasūtrāṇi.

    In my research I found a version of the story that says that the Māheśvarasūtrāṇi were given by Śrī Śiva to sage Sanaka, once he went with other sages to Chidambaram to ask Him for a solution to avoid losing important parts of the vedic knowledge due to the death of several sages, and the, after that, Pāṇini used the sūtras as the basis of his work.

    So, regarding the fragment you use above:

    “At the end of His Cosmic Dance,
    Shiva, the Lord of Dance,
    with a view to bless the sages Sanaka and so on,
    played on His Damaru fourteen times,
    from which emerged the following fourteen Sutras,
    popularly known as Shiva Sutras or Maheshvara Sutras”

    It seem that the story I just mentioned is correct.

    However, you posted the link of the book Shiva Sutras, By Swami Sukhabodhananda, and according to the author, Pāṇini was meditating and then “tuned into” Śrī Śiva’s frequency while He was performing tāṇḍava and then received the sūtras himself.

    Given that, could you please help me decode these stories?

    Finally, I would like to ask you just one more question! =)

    Once again, regarding the fragment:

    “At the end of His Cosmic Dance,
    Shiva, the Lord of Dance,
    with a view to bless the sages Sanaka and so on,
    played on His Damaru fourteen times,
    from which emerged the following fourteen Sutras,
    popularly known as Shiva Sutras or Maheshvara Sutras”

    I noticed you have posted it on the original sanskrit (which is very COOL!). So, could you please provide in which chapter and which verse are these sayings on the Aṣṭādhyāyī?

    Once again, thank you so much for your patience and attention!

    All the best,

    Yuri

      The verse quoted in the beginning is not from the Ashtadhyayi of Panini, but from a later work, the Nandikesvara-kas’ika.

        Thanks a lot, onde again, my friend!

        I am preparing and academic paper. So, without the correct sources I cannot use them.

        Given that, could you please inform in which chapter and verse the citation mentioned above is the Nandikesvara-kas’ika?

        Once again, thank you so much!

        All the best,
