Damodaran Nair
What are the equivalent words in English for "Sankalp", "Iccha", "Chaahanaa",
"Manchaahi" and "Kaamanaa"? What are the differences between them, please help
Thank you very much,
Hare Rama - Hare Krishna !
The following Gita Slokas have immediately come to my mind and those are steps of senses that lead one from Sankalpa through Kaamanaa, and further up to Pranasyati:
Shree Hari Ram Ram
KAAMNAA - Desire for sensual enjoyments and pleasures (pertaining to the body) and desire for hoarding - these are called "Kaamnaa" (Sensual Desires).
SANKALP - dictionary meaning is strong intentions, will, resolves, aim.
ICCHA is Wish
Chaahanaa is liking something
Manchaahi is wanting things to happen according to your desires, or what your mind wants.

Sankalp means conveying. Example: You are conveying (Sankalp) something during yagna to dead parents, and it reaches like mobile SMS. Here that SMS (Sankalp) can be converted to any material form. But not our SMS.
Iccha Sakthi, Kriya Sakthi and 3rd one I dont remember. Iccha is trying for something physically or mentally.
Other 3 words you have mentioned if elaborated as per your posting, may be I can reply.
Well, Prabhuji, I am in no way qualified to answer this....so, just making an attempt to share my point of view. In my humble opinion, all the words other than "Sankalp" probably mean one and the same thing, dont you think? They all can be described by a single word "Desire".
"Sankalp" on the other hand, SEEM a little bit pure!
AH!! Another thought comes to mind. You see, all these are probably just words and could mean anything based on what exactly is the thing being desired! If a Jeev makes a Sankalp to attain Shri Hari, that is indeed where you would use a word Sankalp. However, In My Opinion, the same can be applicable to all the other words. Like "Meri icchaa to sirf Prabhu ka naam lene ki hai" or "Meri Chaahana sirf Shri Hari ke charanon ki hai" or "Meri Kaamanaa hai ki mai Shri Hari ko praapt ho jaaoon". Now, in this, Manchaahi may mean that something you are doing as per whatever you feel rather than following a path described by our saints or Shastras....
Well....I guess, I am just brainstorming.
Hari Hari Bol....Radhey Radhey...Jai Shri Ram...Narayan Narayan...
