Sanskrit numbers 1-100

With the popular demand of our readers, we have ventured to provide Sanskrit counting from 1-100 in Hindi, English and numerals.

It’s quite easy if you understand Hindi–learning the Sanskrit numbers and counting becomes piece of cake.

It should also be noticed that there are lots of Sanskrit counting numbers that we use in our daily life because they are so much similar to their Hindi counterpart.

Our main intention is to provide these numbers so that it could help people who are learning Sanskrit language living in India or abroad.

We hope that the demands of our readers have been met now.

  1. Many of these numbers are quite wrong. Please understand, learning Sanskrit numbers are simple, many people over-complicate things. The following is all you need to know practically speaking:
    -memorize single-digits: 0-9 (sUnya, eka, dvi, tri, catur, pa~nca, SAS, sapta, aSTa, nava) and the double-digits: 10 (dasha), 20 (vi.nshati), 30 (tri.nshat), 40 (catvAri.nshat), 50 (pa~ncAshat), 60 (SaSTi), 70 (saptati), 80 (aSIti), 90 (navati)

    -for 11-99 concatenate the single-digits first with double-digits second using external sandhi rules THERE IS NO NEED TO MEMORIZE ALL 100 NUMBERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    -remember the following simple rules:
    2 – dvi becomes dvA, tri becomes trayah and aSTa becomes aSTA

    -remember 5 irregularities:
    11 – ekAdasha vs expected ekadasha, 16 SoDasha vs expected SaDdasha, 82 – dvyashIti vs expected dvAshIti, 83 – tryashIti vs expected trayo’shIti, 96 – SaNNavati vs expected SaNnavati

    If you REALLY want to count very technically, you MAY count the 0-5 in the neuter form (ekam, dve, trINi, catvAri) and state the tens in their nominative form (just add a visharga to the tens ending in ‘i’). However, this is unnecessary since doing number declension in Sanskrit is really overkill as PaNinian grammar allows numbers to be used without declining for case or gender if you compound them with the object they are trying to enumerate. i.e. Tridvipāḥ vs. Trayo dvipāḥ.

    Trust me on this, I know Sandhi and Sanskrit grammar. My advice is don’t try to over-complicate things or you will fall into confusion very quickly with Sanskrit. All the best. 🙂

    1. I don’t see in your comment where you mention which one is wrong. All you have mentioned is how to memorize it.

      1. OK, I should have been clearer in my previous post; your listing of Sanskrit numbers is not “incorrect” but the list is somewhat “incomplete”.

        You have provided several optional versions of certain numbers, but omitted some others; for example, you wrote dvi-, tri- and aSTa for 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, and 90s, but this can also be dvA-, trayaH- and aSTA-. For instance, 52 could be dvApa~ncAshat in addition to dvipa~ncAshat.

        Also, I provided the rules to form the numbers 1-100 through the logic Sanskrit offers, rather than “memorize” them blindly.


  2. सर,यह पैकेज मुझे बहुत अच्छा लगा.मै गाँव के सरकारी स्कूूल में पढ़ती हूँ.जहाँ आसानी से कुछ नही मिलता.

    1. मुझे जानकर अधिक प्रसन्नता का आभास हुआ, समृद्धि। मन लगाकर पढ़ो। मेरी शुभकामनायें तुम्हारे साथ हैं।

  3. It should be just ‘एकादश’ , ‘व्दादश’…so on
    No ‘न्’ in the end.
    Anyways,thanks fr the rest of the numbers.
