Lesson 53. A Glimpse of Vyanjana Sandhi.
When consonants join the joining bandwagon, we get, what you call, Vyanjana Sandhi..... व्यञ्जन-सन्धिः। One of the most frequently used sandhi is the जश्त्व-सन्धिः, We can do the rest of the व्यञ्जन-सन्धिः at a later date.
जश्त्व-सन्धिः (1 ) Go by these rules:
If a word ends with the first व्यञ्जन of the five वर्ग s ( that is : either क् , च् , ट्, त् or प् ) and is then followed by a word beginning with any swara then that व्यञ्जन of the first word gets transformed into the third व्यञ्जन of the same वर्ग .
That is :
क् + any swara becomes ग्
च् + any swara becomes ज्
ट् + any swara becomes ड्
त् + any swara becomes द्
प् + any swara becomes ब्
Then it gets added to the swara of the next word again to form a new letter.
