The following words are used for SYMMETRY in Sanskrit. They have their own
nuances.
1) SAMMITI (f) : equal in measure from both / all sides
2)Chaturastrata(f) : equal in all four corners ( sides). The number of
corners and sides can be increased at will. The Sanskrit word for the number
will change accordingly, ASRATA remaining as it is. When the number of sides
is infinite it becomes a circle. The circle is the epitome of symmetry.
3) Samata(f) : Equal all over around the axis or centre line
4) Samapramanata(f) : Equal proportions all over.

Sir,
Sammiti can be used for Symmetry.

I am trying to find the proper word for the English word
symmetry. I found the word saushThavaM being used for
that purpose. But I feel this word denotes more beauty
than symmetry. I coined a word tAdrUpaM. This is not in
the dictionary. I coined this word based on tAdAtmya
(sameness of nature). The repetition of motifs and figures
forms an integral part of symmetry. tAdrUpa represents
this better than saushThavaM. I'll be grateful for any
suggestions.

With kind regards - mOhana

re SYMETTRY:

Monier-Williams has only a couple of suggestions, both relating to symmetry
of body: and

*samma - f. equality in size or number, symmetry [aitBr. PancavBr.] *

is his only good suggestion.

I think that, from a philosophical viewpoint, the Classical Sanskrit mind
thinks of <samAsama>, what is the same and not the same.

If anyone can dig up MW's sources in Aitareya Brahmana and "PancavBr." (a
source MW does not further identify in his List of Works).

I found the word saushThavaM being used for
that purpose.

As ever, I wish people would use the H-K transliteration. Does this mean
<sauSThava> or <sauSTava>? What's your source for this?

Thank you for bringing up this interesting notion.
