Anonymous asked: The sanskrit phrase शुभ कामनाएँ really means something like blessings and 'I wish you well' etc. Its usually said when greeting someone for a festival and things like that. So it could sort of mean good luck. And its pronounced as shubh- kaam-na-yein (the last 'n' being only the nasal sound - sorry im a pronunciation nazi!)

Thank you, that was super helpful!

The Sanskrit phrase शुभ कामनाएँ really means something like blessings and ‘I wish you well’ etc. It’s usually said when greeting someone for a festival and things like that.  So it could sort of mean good luck.
