In Sanskrit "Vibhakti" (case) means difference in formation of words.

Prepositions are used to indicate the relationship of one word with the other in English. Where as in Sanskrit the case terminations are part of the word, which serve the purpose of prepositions .

We have seven cases. They are:

Prathamaa Vibhakti 1 The subject word in an active voice is in prathama vibhakti

.EX. vanarah vriksham arohati (The monkey climbs the tree.)

Nominative case The object word in passive voice is also a prathama vibhakti

EX. vanarena vrikshah aaruhyate( The tree is climbed by a monkey )

Hence this vibhakti is used to denote a subject in an active voice and an object in the passive voice.

EX Raamah raajamanih sadaavijayte.(Victory to Rama , the best of the kings

EX Krishnah rakshatu nah jagatraya guruh ( May Krishana protect us the Universal Teacher )

 

Dvitiiyaa vibhakti 2 This is used to indicate the object in an active voice

this is an active voice in which Vriksham is an object and is in dvitiya vibhakti

EX Ramam Ramesham bhaje ( I worship Rama ,the Lord of Sita)

EX Krishnam namasyaamyaham ( I salute Krishna )

 

Tritiiya Vibhakti 3 This is used to indicate an instrument ( with , by )
