Ok, I know what it means. But, what's the proper pronunciation?

:LOL I'm having fun creating all these threads. Too much fun...

So, another question: People who don't believe in or worship diety, do they use this word? (I understand it to mean "The god in me, sees/acknowledges the god in you.") And, (I'm on a roll, watch out!) is this a non-gender specific term, or is there a different pronunciation for replacing goddess with god, or a different version for speaking to males vs. females?

See? I do go on...

I think it depends on interpretation. I've been told it means "the light which is in me, blesses the light which is in you". And other variations.

I use this word.

I don't believe there's any gender associated with it. It's sanskrit. That would be before Jesus' time, ie: no maleness or femalness to your diety - but, based on my original interpretation, no diety. However, I realize that opens a can of worms, as well.


I say, interpret it as you choose. Go by what your teacher told you or go by what's in your heart.

namaste, CF
