Pali is the language of the Tipiṭaka, which is the sacred canon of Theravāda Buddhism and contains much of the Buddha’s speech. Closeley related to Sanskrit, both languages are used interchangeably between religions.
Anigha (अनिघ).—adj. (= Pali id., also anīgha), free from evil (? see nigha, nīgha); occurs chiefly (in Pali literature, aside from commentarial etymologies, only) in the neg. form; ep. of Buddha, or at least of perfected saints. In Pali often rendered calm, unperturbed, but it seems that free from evil (whether sin, pāpa, or misery, duḥkha) will suffice in all Pali and BHS occurrences. Regularly in lists of formulaic epithets which give little clue to a more precise meaning: LV 358.5; Mv ii.397.16; iii.400.2 (same verse in Pali Sn 534 with anigha); 418.14; Ud xxix.34; Gv 284.6.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. 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.
