Just before going to “List of beautiful Sanskrit (classic) words with meaning“, let us have some brief information.

Sanskrit has been the ‘adi bhasha‘ (Grand first language) of the world.

Without Sanskrit no other languages of the world can exist.

Either directly or indirectly all the languages are taken from the great Sanskrit language itself.

It may be Europe or Africa, or Chinese or Japanese, or Arabic or any language on earth is definitely taken from Sanskrit language.

Sanskrit is the most beautiful language on earth.

And not only earth, this language is also spoken in the higher and lower planets –

Starting from the highest planet Vaikuntha in other higher planets like Brahma Loka (Satya Loka), Svarga Loka etc.

Similarly in the lower planets like Atala, Vitala, Sutala, Talatala, Mahatala, Rasatala and Patala in all the planets only Sanskrit is spoken.

Now, let us few of the most beautiful Sanskrit words with meaning:
