Abhikrānta (अभिक्रान्त).—(= Pali abhikkanta; on confusion with ati°, partly no doubt graphic, see atikrānta), (1) adj., advanced, eminent, successful: Divyāvadāna 311.5 f. abhikrānto 'haṃ bhadanta (note p. 707 would read ati°, but Pali abhikkanta is used in mgs. very close to this; instead, read abhikr° for atikr° Divyāvadāna 462.13); Mūla-Sarvāstivāda-Vinaya i.54.5; 58.16, etc.; (2) adj., fine, beautiful, of color (Pali abhikkanta, also with vaṇṇa): probably read in Lalitavistara 398.11 abhikrāntena varṇena; Lefm. em. abhisaṃkrāntena v°; most mss. abhisaṃskāreṇa (seems senseless); v.l. atisaṃkrāntena; Calcutta (see LV.) atikrāntena, which is the usual [Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit] form in this meaning and may be right; (3) n., approach: °ta-pratikrānta, approach and recession, Mahāvastu i.301.5 (mss. ati°); iii.60.5; 182.12 (mss. ati°); °tena pratikrāntena Mahāvastu iii.171.2; atikrāntābhikrāntaḥ Divyāvadāna 47.16 (? so mss., ed. em. atikrāntātikrāntaḥ), perhaps having passed over the ap- proach (to the religious goal)?
