Many places in Sanskrit Slokas you see the three words - Jiv, jivo, jiva (जीव, जीवो, .. )

What does the three words mean? How does the suffix make a difference in their meaning?

  • @YDS this is pure Sanskrit question. Please cast close vote.

  • This sounds a pure Sanskrit grammar question which is off-topic here since this is not a Sanskrit language site. Btw, omitting 'a' in Rama may be related to this post Why we put 'a' after each Hindu name?

Visarga Sandhi, which depends on the following word (Also, I don't think "Jiv," is a thing unless it's a directly used root). See here: https://www.sanskrit-trikashaivism.com/en/learning-sanskrit-combination-rules-of-sandhi-1/435

  • Sorry, while reviewing I had to reject some of your other edits e.g., this one. I like using IAST in my posts too but it's just a personal preference. Users are free to use the transliteration of their choice. E.g., someone might want to use Harvard-Kyoto or Simplified. @AupakaranaAbhibhaa Nov 2 '20 at 16:06
