3) Cuttle fish bone; the same as abdhikapha or samudraphena (according to the Nigh. Prak.), comp. also arṇavaja. (The meaning ‘moon’ is not given in the Koshas; but as the word occurs in the second meaning, in a mathematical Index, similarly as amṛtadīdhiti, and as the synonymes of candra q. v. are used likewise so, it seemed to me necessary to infer this mathematical application from the meaning ‘moon’, which would arise from the etymon of the word in the same way as abja 2. 1. q. v. Comp. also śvetadhāman ‘moon and cuttle fish bone’.) [b.]) m. du.

(-jau) A name of the Aśviṃs q. v., these two gods having sprung from the ocean when it was churned for the amṛta. 3. n.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
