In what language do you usually speak to God ? Presumably in your mother tongue. If you are Don Camillo, you would speak to Him in Italian. Don Camillo's daily chats with Christ about his encounters with the Communist mayor Peppone are really very candid affairs and very warm too. Take me for instance. I follow the dual language policy. I use Sanskrit in praising the Lord with a thousand names or in invoking His Divine presence in my religious rites. I use Tamil, which is my mother tongue, in pouring out my problems to Him and seeking a thousand favours from Him. I have no doubt that millions of people follow this dual language policy obviously for two reasons. First, God has no problems with languages. He is the greatest linguist ever known. He speaks and understands all the spoken and unspoken languages of not only humans but of every living being. Secondly, I have my limitation with Sanskrit which is considered the official medium of communicating with Him by the Hindus. So I have to speak to Him in the language known to me and in which I can communicate with Him effectively whenever I seek His Divine intervention in matters affecting me. Let us, for example, consider a situation in which my business is running into rough weather and my creditors are bugging me. So I make a bee-line to Him with a long fervent appeal and what do you think I should do? Explain to Him my predicament in the language in which I can eloquently communicate or translate my appeal into chaste Sanskrit and recite to Him? In doing so, I may have to enlist the services of a renowned Sanskrit pundit and he, in turn, will take his rightful place in the long queue of my creditors with his bill for professional services rendered. Being aware that He knows Tamil as well as Sanskrit, I'm sure you'll select option number one, that of speaking to Him in a language that comes naturally to you which will be invariably your mother tongue. This does not mean that you have to have recourse to your mother tongue in all your dealings with Him. Sometimes you may not have any favour to seek from Him except His abundant blessings. Or may be you just want to praise Him and build up your goodwill with Him. The action I'll recommend is to use the time honoured method of sticking to Sanskrit because a literal translation of the words of praise from Sanskrit to Tamil or any other language may not sound so solemn. The solemnity infact comes out of your ignorance of the language. In communicating with Him in Sanskrit, you may not know the meaning of what you tell Him. But He does. In fact, the language He understands most and simply loves is the silent one that comes straight from your heart!
