hi Brenda..

Whoaaa.a..the guy who did the first test messed up big time.

TYS -- Sanskrit Test 1: www.traditionalyogas...sanskrit_test01.html

He says the meaning of Hatha is Force and Forceful and not Sun-Moon..He/She made a massive programminer error..You might wanna pass it on to those guys..

Yours truly

Dear Viraagi,

There is NO error in the definition of "hatha" that you find on our site. You might want to check a reputable Sanskrit/English dictionary. Force/forceful is correct. Sun/moon is the esoteric connotation and not the literal meaning.

Kind regards, in Yoga,

Hi Brenda..

aaha.. I should have checked first, before passing out the statement like that..I checked a few online dictionaries..(that's the only immediate resource I have at my disposal..)..and they agree with you..

I am still somewhat skeptical...I'll get back to you on this before I make any more rash statements..Sanskrit is a quite complex, even people who have been learning it for over a decade, can make pronounciation mistakes, there by changing the entire meaning..
