Sandhifying ahaṃ and sasaṃ/sasanto together

ahaṃsasanto
ahaṃsasaṃ
sasantohaṃ
sasantahaṃ
sasantonahaṃ
Are my best guesses

What is the objective of this thread / topic? :confused:

How to apply the correct from of sandhi when combining the words sasaṃ and sasanto, which is what someone who is writing in Pāli might want to do. :slight_smile:

followed by s is already euphonic, so in the first two examples no sandhi has occurred and there’s no call for not writing the two words separately.

The third is ok.

The fourth requires vowel lengthening: sasantāhaṃ

The fifth seems to involve consonant insertion of a kind that’s never found in the texts.

By the way, what is it supposed to mean?

ahaṃsasanto is at part of a poem that I’m working on. It means “as I breathe”
