Lesson 28. लोट् लकारः in the A.P.
A few lessons ago, I had introduced to you the लोट् लकार in the P.P.
लोट् लकार is the imperative mood.
|Recall: verbs used in the imperative mood, help you to express your thoughts, in the form of a command or a request, when used for others; and when used for oneself, as permission to perform the action, or, as a wish expressed.|
We've done a few exercises with the P.P. The A.P s are rather miffed at being neglected. So before they throw up a real royal tantrum, TODAY IS लोट् लकार A.P. TIME! ( All in capitals so that our A.P s can hear us loud and clear and feel kindly towards us once again....)
Naturally, the lot (लोट् लकारs) are in our . Supplement 12 There is one example from each गण । Supplement 13 has the A.P. conjugations of the कृ धातु in both the लट् and लोट् लकार। Have the section ready with you as you go through your concept lesson and exercise.
One particularly beautiful prayer has a combination of both A.P. and P.P. लोट् लकार verbs....
ॐ सह नाववतु । सह नौ भुनक्तु । सह वीर्यं करवावहै ।
तेजस्विनावधीतमस्तु मा विद्विषावहै ॥
ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥
You'll recognize the word forms in both P.P. and in A.P. now.
The teacher and student both pray to the Lord.... Protect us both together, may we both enjoy together. May we both grow strong together. May our study be vigorous. May we not be unfriendly towards each other.
And so, with that prayer in our hearts, let's move on.
On to the exercises with लोट् लकार in the A.P., in the next Lesson 28 A
