Sabda Brahman

Philosophy of the Grammarians

Three-quarters of language remain hidden in a cave, while the fourth part fashions creation.

Thinking is seen as internal speaking to which not enough prana or breath has been added to make it overt. Writing, the focus of attention for the modern West, is seen by vyakarana as a coded recording of the oral, which can never perfectly represent all the nuances of the spoken word and is therefore always secondary.
