If anyone can help clear Judy's question, I will appreciate.

--------------------------------

Pir I know means saint, but does Pira, or Peera have any connection with the word saint? Is it a Gujerati word with a particular meaning?

I am also interested in finding a translation for the work Madolji. In one of the texts, Peera Dewjee is referred to as Madolji Peera Dewjee and I wondered whether it was a title - perhaps 'councillor'?

I look forward to hearing your thoughts

Best wishes

Judy

I think Pira or Peera also have similar meaning as of Pir. In Sanskrit language "a" is usually added after many names for example "Ganesh" is written as "Ganesha", Shiv as "Shiva", Raam as "Raama", Ashok as "Ashoka", Ramayan as "Ramayana", Chandragupt as "Chandragupta", Dev as "Deva"...so in that sense may be Pir (Which is not sanskrit word) but still written as "Pira" or "Peera" by the people who had some background in Sanskrit language.
