‘Awesome’ in Sankrit

Awe is what a finite feels when it encounters the infinite face-to-face. It is the feeling which Arjuna felt when Krishna showed him his divine avatar, or Kung Fu Panda felt when he saw Furious-Five in action.

In Sankrit ‘awesome’ is ‘aucharya’. (औचर्या ), wonder is ‘vismaya’ (विस्मय).
