Many words have very fricative pronunciations, e.g., {aa-sa.} and {aaSh} sounds, which seemed to be very close to each other in Myanmar ears. Moreover, they sounded very unnatural. However, as Myanmars become more familiar with spoken English, the pronunciations become easily distinguishable. - need to work with more knowledgeable peers. - UKT 100416

From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ashvini 100417

Ashvini is the first nakshatra in Hindu astronomy, corresponding to β and γ Arietis .[1] In Jyotiṣa, Ashvini is ruled by Ketu, the descending lunar node. In electional astrological, Ashvini is classified as a Small constellation, meaning that it is believed to be advantageous to begin works of a precise or delicate nature while the moon is in Ashvini.[2]


Unsurprisingly, Ashvini is ruled by the Ashwini Kumaras, the horse-headed twins who served as physicians to the Gods. Personified, Ashwini is considered to be the wife of the Ashwini Kumaras.[3] Ashvini is represented either by the head of a horse, or by honey and the bee hive.[4]


Jyotiṣa states that the constellation through which the moon is passing during the time of a person’s birth has an effect on the personality traits later in life.[5] A person born when the moon is in Ashvini moves quickly and easily. They are brilliant, bright and intelligent. They also tend to possess physical beauty. Once Lord Indra tried to stop the Ashwini Kumaras from seeking medicinal education from the Sun God. Hence people born with Ashvini Nakshatra may have gaps in their education life, but will complete their education because of devotion and dedication. Ashvini nakshatra is said to have "enemical relation" with Jyeshtha nakshatra as Jyeshtha is ruled by Lord Indra.

Naming practices

Under the ancient traditional Hindu principle of naming individuals according to their birthstar (see Jyotisha), the following Sanskrit syllables correspond with this Nakshatra, and would belong at the beginning of a first name:

• Chu ( चु)
• Che ( चे)
• Cho ( चो)
• La ( ला)[6]
