Sanskrit vs. Middle Indic: literary languages as precursors to vernacular languages?
(I had initially thought to post this to r/sanskrit, but figured it might be of broader linguistic interest, since it concerns methodology in etymology in general, esp. as relates to literary vs. oral language use. If I'm wrong and should just post there instead, let me know!)
I often come across etymologies of words in modern South Asian (SA) languages that trace them back to earlier Sanskrit words. For instance,
But afaik, Sanskrit was primarily a literary and elite language, not a popular or vernacular language. Though there's scholarly dispute about this, there seems to be some consensus that at least by the first millenium CE (about millenium before the emergence of the modern SA vernaculars like Hindustani, Kannada, Telugu, Bengali, etc.), Sanskrit --- if not also Prakrit --- was confined to royal and religious elite groups. I believe the linguistic predecessors to modern SA languages are known as "Middle Indic" languages, which developed independently of (though alongside) classical Sanskrit.
But if that's so, how can we legitimately cite Sanskrit words as etymological precursors of modern SA words? Aren't we assuming here that Sanskrit words somehow "filtered into common usage"? Wouldn't it be better to cite vernacular South Asian languages, or just generically refer to "Middle Indic" precursors? Or is this just a matter of scholarly convenience, since we rely on Sanskrit texts for historical attestations of words?
Has anyone here memorized any Sanskrit slokas from The Bhagavad Gita?
How many slokas have you memorized?
How long have you been learning/practicing?
How did you get your start?
Do you have any advice or techniques for memorization?
What methods do you use to keep memorized slokas fresh?
How much time a day do you devote to memorization?
Are you self-taught or did you have assistance from a tutor or an instructor?
Thank you in advance. Namaste. 🙏🏾

Is a Sanskrit Tattoo offensive?
Hello Friends, I feel really dumb for asking this question and im not sure if this is the right subreddit for it. Anyways, so i been practicing buddhism for quite a while now and i was thinking about getting a tattoo on my body. My idea was getting the word peace/inner Peace (shanti) in sanskrit tattooed on me. My question is if this would be offensive to the indian culture or in general people in india/buddhists. Thank you for your answers and apologies if it is the wrong subreddit to ask this :)
