  'Get Your Sheet On'  

We’ve been receiving a large amount of emails asking us where the name ‘Karmasheetra’ came from and also whether we had realised that we'd misspelt the word ‘Karma’ as it should be ‘Kama’.

In order to help you understand the origin of the name we have put the following information together. We really hope that this helps you to see that a large amount of time and effort was put into the 'Karmasheetra' product as well as the name that it goes by.

It makes sense that a fantastic new product needs a fantastic name!

Karma sheet ra
Karma:
Sanskrit: from the root "to do", [meaning deed] meaning action.
This is an action sheet after all and we've all heard of 'good Karma'

Kama Sutra:

noun: an ancient Sanskrit text on the art of love and sexual technique
Need we say more!

We have blended the words ‘Karma’ and ‘Kama’  through means of a ‘homophone’  In essence we’re using the ‘action’ theme from ‘Karma’ and the love and sex theme from 'Kama'
Now we're getting technical aren't we!

 

Sheet:
noun:
a large rectangular piece of cotton or other fabric, used on a bed to cover the mattress or as a layer beneath blankets.

 

Ra:

name: “Mumm-ra”; taken from fictitious cartoon character who was the arch enemy of ‘Lion-O’ (Lord of the Thundercats)

Thundercat Title 

Mumm-Ra Lion-o

'Mumm-ra'

'Lion-O'

 You too can be a an animal like 'Lion-O' or go 'Mumm-ra' on the Karmasheetra!

So there you have it - Karmasheetra is a portmanteau word. A mix or 'karma' (kama) - 'sheet' and 'ra'

Oh, just in case you were wondering what these were...

Portmanteau word

oun: Port
manteau word - a new word formed by joining two others and combining their meanings; ‘motel' is a portmanteau word made by combining `motor' and `hotel’; `brunch' is a well-known portmanteau from the blend of ‘lunch’ and ‘breakfast’"

Homophone - each of two or more words having the same pronunciation but different meanings, origins, or spelling (e.g. 'new' and 'knew')
