Jai Masih Ki – What does it mean?

When trying to decide what to name my blog I wanted to come up with something that was original, but also something that had a special meaning.  Jai Masih Ki is a Hindi phrase that roughly translates to mean God’s Grace.  Indian Christians use it as a greeting instead of other normal greetings.  It is my hope that everyone who visits my page will understand what the Grace of God is.

Having said that I can not promise how often or what I will right about.  This is going to be a place where I can write about what is going on in my life and what the Lord is showing me.

May God Bless you all!

  1. Looking forward to your posts! I was trying to figure out what the name meant yesterday. I like it.

    Nice blog, FYI – “Jai Masih Ki” is not an “Hindu phrase” at all. Its a Hindi Phrase (Hindu- religion vs. Hindi- language). And it doesn’t mean Grace of God either; Masih is the name for Christ in the languages of the Indian subcontinent (Urdu, Hindi, etc) it stems from the word “Maseeha” or saviour/prophet. The phrase literally means “Hail Christ” or “Greatness of Christ” and is used by Christians in India & Nepal as an alternative to the Hindu greeting of “Namaste”.

  3. SS,
    Thanks for your response. I realize that the language is Hindi and not Hindu, it was just a typo that I did not catch. Also, I said that it meant ‘Grace of God’ because I spent 7 weeks in India two summers ago and that is what we were told that it roughly translated to that or Glory of God.
