      Dear Mukta and friends,

      "to the mountain" -- use accusative case.

      "in the mountain", "on the mountain" -- use locative case.

      Yong Peng.

      One thing we all must learn is that no language can be completely
      translated (with all its essence) in English. What seems similar in
      english, i.e. "to the village" & "to the mountain" is actually
      different if considered in Pali / Sanskrit (and relatively in Hindi
      too). In case of mountain, the sense is "on the mountain" and
      therefore it is different from "to the village".
