Abhimānin (अभिमानिन्):—[tatpurusha compound] 1. m. f. n.

(-nī-ninī-ni) 1) (In Philo-sophy.) Conceiving objects with the notion that they refer exclusively to one’s own self; esp., however, with the implied sense that such conception is erroneous; (comp. abhimāna 1.); e. g. (in the Vedānta, the inferior degrees of the absolute Spirit, each of which conceives the world as referring exclusively to itself) Ved. Sāra: etatsamaṣṭyupahitaṃ caitanyaṃ vaiśvānaro virāḍiti cocyate sarvanarābhimānitvādvividhaṃ rājamānatvācca ‘he is called Vaiśvānara, because he conceives the whole of mankind as referring to him exclusively &c.’ (where the affix tva belongs to the whole compound sarvanaraabhimānin).

2) Conceiving (in general), but esp. with the implied sense: conceiving erroneously, fancying, imagining; e. g. Udyogap. Mahābh.: prajñābhimānī pratikūlavādī tyājyaḥ sa tādṛktvarayaiva bhṛtyaḥ.

3) Personifying, personating; e. g. Śankara in his comm. on the Chhānd. Up.: …te sarverciṣam (i. e.) arcirabhimāninīṃ devatāmabhiniviśanti (i. e. pratipadyante) &c. …. te dhūmaṃ (i. e.) dhūmābhimāninīṃ devatāmābhimukhyena saṃbhavanti &c. …. naite karmiṇaḥ prakṛtāḥ saṃvatsaraṃ (i. e.) saṃvatsarābhimāninīṃ devatāmabhiprāpnuvanti; or Mahīdh. in the comm. on the Vājas.: śākhādīnāmacetanatvepi tadabhimānināṃ devatānāṃ sattvāddevatātvam . abhimānivyapadeśastviti vyāsasūtrokteḥ; or saṃvatsarābhimānī prajāpatiḥ stūyate; or Sāy.: yadyapi tisra eva devatā ityuktatvātkṣityādyabhimāninyo devatāstisra eva &c.; or Prabodhach.: madhumatyā ca bhūmimāpannaḥ sthānābhimāninībhirdevatābhirupacchandyate ‘…by the deities who personated the place’, i. e. who created in Purusha’s mind the illusion that it was mount Meru; or Vedānta-Sūtra: abhimānivyapadeśastu viśeṣānugatibhyām (Śaṅkara: na khalu mṛdabravīdityevaṃjātīyakayā śrutyā bhūtendriyāṇāṃ cetanatvamāśaṅkanīyam . yatobhimānivyapadeśa eṣaḥ . mṛdādyabhimāninyo vāgādyabhimāninyaśca cetanādevatā vadanasaṃvadanādiṣu cetanociteṣu vyavahāreṣu vyapadiśyante na bhūtendriyamātram); or Daśakumārach.: kaścinnarendrābhimānī māṃ nivarṇya &c. ‘somebody personating a doctor &c.’.

4) Proud, not bearing a slight, haughty; e. g. Rāmāy.: abhimāninamudbhrāntamātmasaṃbhāvitaṃ śaṭham .…ghnanti vairiṇaḥ; or Gītagov.: harirabhimānī rajaniridānīmiyamapi yāti virāmam . kuru mama vacanaṃ &c. (comm. laghutvaṃ na sahate).

5) Wishing, desiring; e. g. Vijnānāch. on a Sāṅkhya S.: …ahaṃkāra indriyādihetuḥ . loke bhogābhimāninaiva rāgadvārā bhogopakaraṇanirmāṇadarśanāt (v. 1. bhogopakaraṇakaraṇadarśanāt).

6) Doing injury, hostile, an enemy; e. g. Sāyaṇa (in the comm. on abhimāti): abhimātīrabhimāninaḥ karmavighnakāriṇaḥ śacūn. 2. m.

(-nī) 1) A name of Agni as the eldest born of Brahman (masc.); according to the Viṣṇu Purāṇa.

2) The name of a son of the Manu Bhautya who presides over the fourteenth Manwantara. (There is probably an allegorical connexion between the name of these personages and the Sāṅkhya doctrine which makes ahaṃkāra originate in the principle of intellect.) E. man with abhi, kṛt aff. ṇini; 1. 4. perhaps not a [tatpurusha compound], but abhimāna, taddh. aff. ini.
