We all know that the Mantras/Slogans are in many languages but which language did gods/goddesses/deities use, based on the YUGAs and how can we predict this? Is there any Purana/Itihasa having reference for this.

I heard that Someone of the peoples suggestions are in Sanskrit is it true.

  • Ordinarily it would be Sanskrit for our deities.

1 Answer 1


If you are asking-- what's the language of the Gods -- then it is Sanskrit.

From this Agni Purana chapter:

Sanskrit is the language of the gods. The language of humans is Prakrita. Poetry can be either in Sanskrit or in Prakrita. There are three types of poetry. These are gadya (prose), padya (poetry) or mishra ( a mixture of the two), Genuine poetry is, however, only padya.


Sanskrit Verse 7 of chapter 337 of Agni Purana:

Yonirvedascha lokascha siddhamannAdayonijam |
DevAdinAm samskritam syAt prAkritam trividham nrinAm ||
