I will be highly grateful to the people who can clarify the following for

1. How to pronounce "gam" , for example in the following and other places
like "kavigam" in Ganapati mantra? I understand , that because of some
grammer rule you write "gam" but pronounce differently.

"PatimvishvasyAtmeshwaragam shAshvatagam shivamachyutham".

2. In the following verses what and why is the differnce between

tamasastupAre   and  tamasas parastAt

vedAhametam purusham mahAntham Aditya varNam tamasas parastAt tam evam vidhvaan
amrta iha

vedAhametam puruSHam mahAntam | AdityavarNam tamasastu pAre | sarvANi
roopANi vicitya dheera: | nAmAni krtvAbhivadan yadAste || 16 || ...

3. The source and number in that source for the following:

Ayam Nijaha Paroveti ganana laghu chetasam
udaara charitaanamtu Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam.

4. In the Sri Sukta which is correct( and I have seen both equally):

Jaatavedo Ma maavaha or ma aavaha (mama vs ma).

Thanks and regards to all the learned people.
