I got a tattoo a year ago, and I had contact with someone that knew Sanskrit and told me it was correct. After reading more online, I have realized that the symbol I have is not even common.
I am devastated and I am sure it doesn't even mean love :(
Could you please help me? If you click on the link, you will see what symbol I got tattooed in Sanskrit. It's the first one, love.
PLEASE TELL ME IT MEANS SOMETHING!
प्रीतिः (Preetihi) is the correct translation of Love in sanskrit. Of course, it is one of the
अनुराग: (Anuraagaha) or प्रेम: (Premaha) are some more synonyms.<o:p></o:p>
<em>I don't know Sanscrit</em>
...And i'm not even able to type the word Sanskrit correctly))))AAaaa.
I don't know Sanscrit. As I can see it is English words 'love' ('pease', friendship' etc.) transcribed in Devanagari. Devanagari is the name of alphabet (not language).
Sanscrit has a number of words which can (loosely?) be translated this way (I even rememebr a couple of them). But I don't think any of them is 'love' or "lava'.
Now, judjing from what i see having typed this (लव) in google images, modern Indians do use this word in Devanagari. I suppose the texts i see there are in Hindi? Seems like they occasionaly use an English word. I really hope some Indians here wil explain to which extent and when:)
Also if you really need soemthing more ancient, there was an epic character named लव :
