Sanskrit and Old Norse Icelandic

Sanskrit and Old Norse Icelandic

our spiritual treasure is more profound than we have been taught hitherto.
Numerous terms and names in Norse Edda myths and poems are derived directly from Sanskrit.

Síðhöttur, name of Óðinn is said to mean: He who wears a white-brimmed hat, síður hattur.
According to etymology, it is derived from Siddhartha, meaning he whoo has perfection as a goal. Siddhi perfection, artha goal.


Name of Óðinn, Gangleri, meaning the walking one. According to etymology: a wave of wisdom from the sacred river Ganga lahari


In Óðsmál research project, I refer to Kesheva Deva Shastry and Christian Andreas Holmboe for Old Norse and Sanskrit.

Listen to pronunciation: Óðinn, Síðhöttur, Gangleri
