A beautiful phrase ‘Know Thyself’ is used for many purposes including books titles, creative art captions, and even on internet memes. Apart from the simple meaning, there is a deeper significance to this phrase because it is spiritually so elevating–a person, who has come to know the true self, has come to know God.
In Sanskrit, this phrase is translated equally beautifully and in two words can convey the same meaning and emotional luggage. For the use of users who are not yet accustomed to reading the Devanagari script, I am providing the Roman transliteration according to the IAST format.
Please feel free to let me know if you have any question or doubt about the pronunciation of any of the Sanskrit words. Our dear friend, Varalakshmi Kandregula, has helped in the Sanskrit translation.
