Abhauti (अभौति).—(°-) (?) , in Laṅkāvatāra-sūtra 17.5, text abhauti-bhautikānām; Suzuki things created and uncreated; the mss. are very confused; some simply abhautikānāṃ; perhaps read [Page060-b+ 71] abhautika-bhaut° (and perhaps render rather of things non-elemental and elemental). Surely no stem abhauti should be recognized. See bhautika (2); one possible reading for the above passage might be bhūta-bhauti- kānām, of gross elements and (subsidiary elements or) sense-objects.

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.
