English to Hindi translations [Non-PRO]
English term or phrase: FURTHER
The word "FURTHER" became a mantra in the late 60's for the hippy culture. It literally meant to push yourself further than societies normal boundaries, to expand your mind, to "break on through". The 60's philosophy has obvious links with Indian mysticism and I want a translation of the word in Sanskrit. Please help!!!!

Apni had se aage badho

'Apni had se aage badho' would be the Hindi translation of 'push yourself beyond your limits'. This would be the approximation of 'further' as used by the Beat generation in the 1960s.

Well, there have been connections between the Hippie culture and Indian mysticism but then the connections are not always on a one-to-one basis.

You would not find any single term to explain the meaning of 'further' as used in that specific context.

Thus it would only seem appropriate that you explain the term using a phrase. The one I have used seems quite appropriate to me.

Let me know if there are other doubts.
