This is from Nancy to Jerry HE I can't shed light on the philosophical discussion on swabhava or swabhavat, but I studied Sanskirt for a while, and you can pretty much ignore the ending <t> as probably not being significant to the meaning of the word. Sanskrit has no separate prepositions (to,from, etc) instead, it changes the ending of the nouns to agree with quantity, gender and case. Case endings take the place of prepositions. Karma and Karman is a good example.
