Amazing affinity of Russian and Sanskrit August 18, 2013

The linguistically proven facts show the amazing affinity of Russian and Sanskrit languages, obviously pointing out that these two languages must have lived closed together in some periods of antiquity.

Dr. Weer Rajendra Rishi (1917 – 2002) was a well known Indian linguist. He was fluent in Russian and worked in the Indian Embassy in Moscow between 1950—1952. Dr. Rishi was the author of (1) Russian-Hindi Dictionary (foreword by the late Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru), (2) Russian Grammar in Hindi, (3) Russian Folklore in Hindi (4) Hindi translation of Pushkin’s poem ‘Gypsy‘, (5) Marriages of the Orient, (6) Roma—The Punjabi Emigrants in Europe, the USSR, the Americas etc. (7) Romani-Punjabi-English Conversation Book, (8) Romani-Punjabi-English Dictionary and (9) Multi-Lingual Romani Dictionary (Romani Hindi English French Russian).

One of his last works was a book India & Russia – Linguistic & Cultural Affinity. This book is now very rare and it is undeservingly forgotten so I would like to bring it back as a tribute to Dr. Weer Rajendra Rishi.

The book has XIII chapters but it is Chapter II Affinity in Language which is, in my view, the most interesting part of the book. These are some excerpts from this chapter:

“As mentioned in the preceding chapter both Russian and Sanskrit belong to the satem group of the Indo-European family of languages. This, however, creates one mis-understanding in one’s mind that the relation between Sanskrit and Russian is as distant one as that between Sanskrit and other Indo-European languages. As will be explained in this chapter, the relation between these two languages is very close and correspondence between these two languages is so minute that, to use Dr. Sidheshwar Varma’s words, it cannot be a mere chance*.

“In the sphere of vocabulary, there is such a large number of words which are common to these two languages that it has not been possible to mention all of them in this chapter. Only a list of basic words common to both these two languages has been given. Moreover, as explained in the succeeding paragraphs of this chapter many of the grammatical rules are common to both these languages and the number of words common to these two languages formed after the application of such common grammar rules could be further multiplied. This is not so when we compare Sanskrit with any other language belonging to the Indo-European group, leaving aside Iranian and Persian.“(p.14)

“That the melodiousness of the rhythm of the Russian folklore and the Sanskrit verse synchronises with each other is confirmed by a news item published in the Soviet Land (No. 2 of January 1968) published by the Information Services of the Embassy of the USSR in India, New Delhi. It is stated that the style of the verse of Russian folk legends and Puskin’s tales is closer to the rhythm of Sanskrit verse. Professor Smirnov (1892— 1967), the reputed Sanskritologist of the Soviet Union has translated Mahābhārata into Russian in this type of verse. Professor Smirnov had with him a recording of an extract from the Mahābhārata read in Sanskrit original by Professor Nirmal Chandra Maitra of India to the accompaniment of Indian instruments. When after playing the recording of the Sanskrit version, Professor Smirnov read his Russian translation, the enchanting melody of the rhythm was found to be very much like that of the Sanskrit original as read by Professor Nirmal Chandra Maitra and sounded in unison.“(p.16)

On the following pages Dr. Rishi gave some interesting comparisons of Russian and Sanskrit noun declension, verbs, prefixes and suffixes, prepositions concluding the chapter by an impressive list of Russian- Sanskrit common words. The full text of this chapter can be found here.

    Hi Axinia –
    Interesting and amazing –

    I am an Indian who has studied Sanskrit – have functional understanding of the language . I am reading GITA – deep dive reading and have been reading Sanskrit vocabulary closely from last 3 years .

    My natural speaking language is Hindi. I was unaware of this fact and whenever I travelled to Turkey , I was surprised to find them using words common to HIndi i.e. Paneer – Fresh cottage Cheese , Darwaza – Door etc. I was fascinated that humanity may be spread across, but there is a deeper connectedness that the present world is unaware of.

    Even with across the different religions and religious practices – I prefer to call them spiritual practices; the thread of the divinity points clearly and unambiguously towards common message and worshipping. Unfortunately majority of the world is missing the message and worshipping the messenger.

    The science of VEDAS and Purana’s and Upnishada’s are so tell telling that any person’s would be shocked to realize how deviated humanity has got from the source and the center of spiritualism . Sahaj Yoga is tantric science lost thousands of years back and Gita contains the hybernated seed of kundalini safely passed on to the future generations by farsighted YOGI’s when they saw the world entering the dark ages of its cyclical period of Kaliyuga .

    Today we seee the signs of awakening everywhere , this piece of yours , this discussions and all the spiritual effort is clearly showing the path of revival and time of spiritual enlightemement has started .

    • Priya Says:

      Rohit Paneer and Darwaza came from the Turkish conquest of India not any other deeper connection you are looking at.

    • Tamara Says:

      Sanskrit came from Russia due to it is the only language Russians talk for 100s of centuries; and, it does not tie to any other live language but old Russian and other Slovenians. Hury Hury is (slavenie) means praising

      • Shwetha Says:

        My dear
        Sanskrit is much older than the old Russian.

        • John Arbuckle Says:

          They both share a common Indo European ancestor that originated just north of the baltic about 3500 bc. Lets do some research before talking about conquests and spiritual connections people.

      Thank you for your research, Rohit.

    • Samik Says:

      These Turk words were brought to India by the moguls .. The Turks imposed their rule and their language and slowly Sanskrit words got displaced by Turk and Arabic . Since Delhi was the centre of Turk rule – Hindi is a highly arabised language

  3. mahadeepa Says:

    In 1994 we had gone to Russia. The hotel in which we were staying had a cafeteria on each floor. I went there to get tea but try as much I would the lady just kept saying ‘nyet’ I tried hand gestures, trying to explain cafe & then ‘tea’ but she kept saying ‘nyet’. I thought there goes my morning cup of tea. Then suddenly a light bulb lit up in her brain and she asked ‘Chai? !! OMG, & here I had spent a good 15 minutes trying to tell her that I wanted tea!! Chai is what we say in India. Then I needed sugar. But that was faster because there was table salt which I gestured 7 then made hand gestures as the other one. She did not understand sugar, but she said ‘ sakhar’? That solved my problem.
    After Ram, his sons Luv & Kush went north. Kush went to China & Luv to Russia. The Sanskrit language was taken there, and it was blended with the local language which the Slavs who are descendents of Luv used.
    This is a very useful article. Thanks.

    Part 12
    Many years ago,some Russian scholars had come to Chennai for a research on Hindu
    culture. Maha Swami was then camping at Mylapore and so they had darshan of Him
    and took many photographs of Him. They gave the photographs to the Russian Ancient
    Culture Academy in Russia also.In 1987, Russia held a festival of Indian Culture in the
    Soviet Cultural Academy in Chennai. Dr.Padma Subramanyam gave a lecture on
    Bharatham, Kutchipidi, etc. Then, she was invited to Russia, where she met
    Prof.Ribakov, who was the chief of Russian Scientific Academy and Russian Ancient
    Culture Institute. She was surprised to see a portrait of Maha Periava in his room. When
    asked, he said it was given by a friend who had visited Him in Chennai and he also
    wanted to meet Him and clarify a few doubts. Subsequently, he came to Chennai and
    Dr.PS accompanied him to Kanchipuram. But, Maha Swami was down with fever and
    the sishyas said they cannot meet Him. They were disappointed and didn’t know what to
    do. Just then another sishya came to them and said that Periava asked them to come in.
    They went in, and Prof.Ribakov and Periava kept looking at each other for a while. Then,
    Dr.PS asked the Prof to clarify his doubts. But the Prof said that all his doubts have
    already been clarified. Now comes the best part. Periava asked ‘Russians speak their
    language mixed with Sanskrit, but in Northern Russia do they speak the language
    without any mix of Sanskrit?’ Ribakov was surprised and said ‘yes’. Then Periava said, ‘
    you say Russia now. In the ancient times it was known as Rishivarsham.You know why?
    That is where Rishis like Yagnavalkiyar were running a Vedic Research Center. Then he
    spoke about the history of Russia at length. Then the Prof said that he wanted to
    become a Hindu. Periava said ‘you already are’.But the Prof insisted on a Hindu name
    for him. Periava laughed and said ‘ he has grey beard like Rishis. So, from now on his
    name is Rishi’. Well, that Rishi, runs a branch of Ramakrishna mutt in Moscow now.

  7. Ai On Says:

    Lithuanian language has many identical words to Sanskrit.
    So might be, that Russian inherited the similarity to Sanskrit from Baltic languages. Eastern Balts (Galindians) are ones of the ancestors of Russian ethnos. Eastern Balts were assimilated by Slavs.
    Only two of many Balts languages survived – Lithuanian and Latvian.
    The Lithuanian language is often said to be the most conservative living Indo-European language, retaining many features of Proto-Indo-European now lost in other Indo-European languages.

    • Anna Katharina Emmerick Says:

      The first tongue [proto indo european], the mother tongue, spoken by Adam, Shem, and Noah, was different, and it is now extant only in isolated dialects. Its first pure offshoots [indo-iranian] are the Zend, the sacred tongue of India, and the language of the Bactrians. In those languages, words may be found exactly similar to the Low German of my native place. The book that I see in modern Ctesiphon, on the Tigris, is written in that language.

    Hi Axinia This is Shrirang Sudrik from Pune India Indeed a very excellent work on russian and sanskrit. I am also studying sanskrit. Now it has been proved that russian is also derived from Sanskrit. The list of words you have given is awesome. I will suggest one book for you to read on this titled INDIA THE BIRTHPLACE OF HUMAN SPEECH, SANSKRIT THE MOTHER OF ALL LANGUAGES BY MR. NIRANJAN SHAH FROM USA. Ancient India ruled Russia in very very ancient times I think Russia came from Rushi a Vedic Sage i.e. Land of Sages. Can I share your views with my study circle and in Russian Embassy in New Delhi India
    Please let me have your views on this
    Once again thanks for such a nice info pl keep it up

  9. Shwetha Says:

    Russia’s older name was Rishivarsha. And they word comrades in Russian is derived from Tavrishi..
    This is because many Rishis lived in olden days North Russia.

  10. Shwetha Says:

    Same way how California was kapilaranya
    . Sage kapilas ashram.

  11. David Nelson Says:

  12. Nandkumar Says:
