    I’m really curious about one thing: what is the origin of the word अपार ? Is it sanskrit, arabic or something else?

    Namaste Dorothea,
    I am not sure if this word is from Sanskrit however, this words has “अ” as a prefix which is very common in Sanskrit and Hindi. अपार means Boundless or limitless and पार means boundary or limit. The same prefix could be seen with many Sanskrit words like अनिक्षित (Undecided), अनाथ (Orphan), अन्याय (Injustice) etc.
    Hope this help!
    Regards, Nitin
