Abhibhavati (अभिभवति).—(not recorded in this physical sense; Sanskrit and Pali only overcomes and the like), mounts, climbs upon or over; passes over: Lalitavistara 197.4 (verse) (mīḍhaṃgirī…) abhibhūya caṅkramati tatra ca nopalipto; Lalitavistara 198.16 (verse) kuḍyā ca vṛkṣa abhibhūya, (the Buddha's radiance, ābhā) passing over walls and trees (leaves no shadow).
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.
