      Is there any hyphenation dictionary plugin for sanskrit language? Please anyone advise on this.

          In more detail, we have a sanskrit book transliterated in english. To avoid loose lines, we need to hyphenate the sanskrit words, but we don't have the knowledge of sanskrit language for how to break.

           

          Here are the sanskrit words in english for your reference. Anyone suggest on this would be really helpful.

            I know absolutely nothing about Sanskrit, but you really are not asking about hyphenating the Sanskrit language, you're asking about hyphenating the English transliterations, for English-speaking readers, and I doubt there are rules for that other than put hyphens where they make sense. You could tag these words as English and the hyphenation algorithms would break them, probably badly, or you could add them to a user dictionary and include the preferred hyphenation of your choice.

             

            Of course, determining where the syllable breaks really are probably requires someone who is familiar with proper Sanskrit pronunciation...
