Abhyāvartam (अभ्यावर्तम्):—[tatpurusha compound] ind. By repeatedly coming; by being re-peated; e. g. Śatap.: tena retasā siktenemāḥ prajāḥ punarabhyāvartaṃ prajāyante (Sāy.: = abhyāvṛtyābhyāvṛtya); or (said of the verses in a stotra) Śatap.: yadūrdhvā stomā anuyanti . yajñamabhyāvartaṃ sāmabhiḥ kalpamānāḥ; or upāvartadhvamiti vā anyāni stotrāṇi . abhyāvartaṃ dhuryai stuvata imā vai prajā etāni stotrāṇyabhyupāvṛttāstasmādimāḥ prajāḥ punarabhyāvartaṃ prajāyante; or caturviṃśāḥ pavamānāḥ . trivṛdabhyāvartaṃ catuścatvāriṃśāḥ pavamānā ekaviṃśamabhyāvartam &c. (where abhyāvartam is not to be taken as a neuter in the sense of āvṛttistotra; for in the gloss of Harisvāmin—Ms. E. I. H.—: ‘pañcabhiretābhiḥ kalpāntaraṃ prapañcyate . tatra prathame yāvadahani trayopi pavamānā yāścaturviṃśāyānu (?) abhyāvartayanti . abhyāvartaṃ dhuryai stuvate tattrivṛt (Ms. natṛvṛt sic) . pavamānavyatiriktānyāvṛttistotrāṇi trivṛnti bhavantītyarthaḥ’, the word āvṛttistotra explains the ‘sense’ but not the grammatical quality of abhyāvartam. It should be observed that in this and similar passages trivṛt, ekaviṃśa, trayastriṃśa, ekaviṃśa &c. are names of Stomas which qualifiy the Stotra: the former expressing how often the verses of a Stotra are to be repeated, while the Viṣṭuti explains the order in which such a repetition takes place; comp. e. g. Mādh. Jaiminīyany.: teṣu triṣu tṛceṣūrdhvagānena trivṛtstomo bhavati . na tvatra pañcadaśasaptadaśastomādīnāmivāvṛttagānamasti; or atra (I. 4. 3.) triṣvapi vākyeṣu trivṛtpañcadaśasaptadaśaśabdā guṇavidhāyakatvena saṃmatāḥ .…tasmādvahiṣpavamānādiśabdāḥ stotranāmadheyāni .—tairnāmabhiḥ karmāṇyanūdya trivṛdādiguṇā vidhīyante). E. vṛt with ā and abhi, kṛt aff. ṇamul (with the udātta on the penultimate, which accent the word would not have, if it were a regular accus. of a deriv. with ghañ).

context information

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.
