    Hi guys,
    What is the best english word for communicating the meaning of Astitiva?
    अस्तित्व

    Came here to actually seek help; the best person I think would have been @Novalis ! her exactitude with words and expressions in English is so spot on! I do not though know if she still is visiting the forum .
    Suggestions please
    The word 'Existence' really doesn't convey the complete essence of this word we have in hindi

    :hello:
    उदाहरण : मैं भूत के अस्तित्व में विश्वास नहीं करता हूं।
    Usage : I dont believe in the existence of ghosts.

    अस्तित्व {astitv} = BEING(Noun)

    Usage : a point of view gradually coming into being

    But then you are not happy with “existence “ in that case try using synonyms available for existence . Even essence seemed to be equivalent and near substitute.

    Thanks and Regards.

    @Thyagarajan
    Thanks Sir
    agreed ; i am trying to use this word for a inanimate object and essence seems closer.
    Thanks
