Vyakarana (Sanskrit grammar)

Source: Wikisource: A dictionary of Sanskrit grammar

1) Ādeśa (आदेश).—Substitute as opposed to sthānin, the original. In Pāṇini's grammar there is a very general maxim, possessed of a number of exceptions, no doubt, that 'the substitute behaves like the original' (स्थानिवदादेशः अनल्विधौ (sthānivadādeśaḥ analvidhau) P.I.1.56.); the application of this maxim is called स्थानिवद्भाव (sthānivadbhāva); for purposes of this स्थानिवद्भाव (sthānivadbhāva) the elision (लोप (lopa)) of a phonetic element is looked upon as a sort of substitute;cf. उपधालेपस्य स्थानिवत्त्वात् (upadhālepasya sthānivattvāt) Kāś. on P.I.1.58. Grammarians many times look upon a complete word or a word-base as a substitute for another one, although only a letter or a syllable in the word is changed into another, as also when a letter or syllable is added to or dropped in a word; cf. पचतु, पचन्तु (pacatu, pacantu) ... इमेप्यादेशाः । कथम् । आदिश्यते यः स आदेशः । इमे चाप्यादिश्यन्ते । (imepyādeśāḥ | katham | ādiśyate yaḥ sa ādeśaḥ | ime cāpyādiśyante |) M. Bh. on I.1.56; cf also सर्वे सर्व-पदादेशा दाक्षीपुत्रस्य पाणिनेः (sarve sarva-padādeśā dākṣīputrasya pāṇineḥ) M.Bh. on P. I.1.20; cf. also अनागमकानां सागमका आदेशाः (anāgamakānāṃ sāgamakā ādeśāḥ) M. Bh. on I.1.20:

2) Ādeśa.—Indication, assignment; cf. योयं स्वरादेशः अन्तोदात्तं, वधेराद्युदात्तत्वं, स्वः स्वरितमिति आदेशः (yoyaṃ svarādeśaḥ antodāttaṃ, vadherādyudāttatvaṃ, svaḥ svaritamiti ādeśaḥ) R.Pr.I.30-32; cf. also आदेशः उपदेशः (ādeśaḥ upadeśaḥ) com. on Tai.-Prāt. II.20: cf. also अनादेशे अविकारः (anādeśe avikāraḥ) V.Pr.IV.131, where Uvvaṭa remarks यत्र उदात्तादीनां स्वराणां सन्धौ आदेशो न क्रियते तत्र अविकारः प्रत्येतव्यः । (yatra udāttādīnāṃ svarāṇāṃ sandhau ādeśo na kriyate tatra avikāraḥ pratyetavyaḥ |) cf. also एकारो विभक्त्यादेशः छन्दसि (ekāro vibhaktyādeśaḥ chandasi) A.Pr. II.1.2, where ए (e) is prescribed as a substitute for a caseaffix and त्ये (tye) and अस्मे (asme) are cited as examples where the acute acent is also prescribed for the substitute ए.

Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)

Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram

Ādeśa (आदेश) is a synonym for Ājñā (“command”), according to the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—The origin of the goddess Kubjikā, the teachings and their transmission are all the result of the power and transmission (saṃkramaṇa) of the Command (ājñā). [...] This term is very common in the contemporary vernaculars, as is its synonym ādeśa. When leaving, a junior may ask his senior for his 'ājñā' i.e. permission to do so. Or the junior man may ask his senior what he wants him to do by requesting him for his 'ājñā'. In a more sophisticated sense, a disciple will ask his or her spiritual teacher for his or her ājñā or ādeśa as the devotee would the deity for grace. Gorakhnāthis especially request Gorakhnātha, their teacher and deity, with great emotion to give them his ‘ādeśa’ or ‘ājñā’.
