Ābhoga (आभोग).—m. (derived by Leumann, Das nordarische Lehrgedicht des Buddhismus, AKM 20.1, p. 68, from bhuj bend, as Anbiegung = Anlehnung; an-ā°, ohne Anlehnung d.h. ohne Rückhalt oder Stützpunkt. Some Pali interpreters also derive from this root, see PTSD. Whatever the ety- mology, the primary meaning in BHS is clearly effort; so some Sanskrit lexx., = yatna. This also fits at least many Pali occurrences of ābhoga, but in Pali the word needs more study; dict. definitions are all unsatisfactory; it is often bracketed or equated with manasikāra, esp. with cetaso or cittassa, DN comm. i.122.6—7, perhaps as (mental) effort, e.g. Miln. 97.10), effort, earnest application (directed towards, loc.): Mvy 2092 = Tibetan sgrim pa, ḥjug pa, bzo (gzo) ba, endeavor; setting about; work; śīle ābhogaṃ kṛtvāna, having made effort for (in regard to) morality Mv ii.358.7; 360.9; ekāntaśukleṣv eva karmasv ābhogaḥ kara- ṇīyaḥ, one must strive for… Divy 23.30—24.1; 55.12; 193.15; 289.23; sarvābhogavigato 'nābhogadharmatāprāptaḥ kāya- vākcittautsukyāpagataḥ Dbh 64.15—16, rid of all (inter- ested) effort, arrived at a state of effortless (impassive, see anābhoga) condition, free of bodily, vocal, mental desires (said of the Bodhisattva); in Dharmas 118, list of six ‘hindrances’ (āvaraṇa) to samādhi: kausīdya, māna, śāṭhya, auddhatya, anābhoga, satyābhoga; here anābhoga lack of effort has a bad sense, not a good one as in Dbh 64.16; satyābhoga is obscure (saty-ābhoga, effort directed towards something concretely existing as distinguished from abstract goals? if satya-ābhoga, as cpd., I do not understand what it could mean as a hindrance to samādhi). See anā- bhoga, sābhoga, both clearly supporting meaning effort.Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: Edgerton Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit Dictionary

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family.
