Sanskrit[edit]

Can any one give me the word in Sanskrit for motivation? —This unsigned comment was added by 116.68.83.19 (talk) at 13:30, 28 June 2009‎.

A couple of problems[edit]

  1. A willingness of action especially in behavior.

Does this even make sense? 'Willingness of action' makes sense, though it's clumsy as Hell, but what does 'especially in behavior' even mean? Next point

  1. Something which motivates.
  2. An incentive or reason for doing something.

Are these actually distinct, could they be merged with a semi-colon, as in:

  1. Something which motivates; an incentive or reason for doing something.

They sound like two different viewpoints on the same thing to me. Renard Migrant (talk) 23:08, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
