Abhisameti (अभिसमेति).—also (hyper-Sanskrit? or denom. to abhisa-maya?) °samayati (= Pali °meti; Critical Pali Dictionary identifies this with Sanskrit both abhi-sam-i and abhi-sam-ā-i, but neither of these is used in any such meaning in Sanskrit), realizes (intuitively), understands perfectly (compare s.v. abhisamaya, to which this is the verb, but the noun is commoner): °meti Mahāvastu i.312.10 (dharme, acc.pl.); ger. (satyā) °metiya (Senart's em. m.c., mss. °metya) Mahāvastu i.165.11; in Mahāvastu iii.382.3 mss. abhisame (aor.?) catasro satyāṃ (i.e. the Four Noble Truths); Senart em. abhisamita (evidently as n. pl. of ppp.) catasro satyā; Laṅkāvatāra-sūtra 139.5 abhisamita-dharmaḥ, one who has grasped the dharma; Divyāvadāna 617.11 abhisamayati (caturārya- satyāni).
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.
