Annāda (अन्नाद):—[tatpurusha compound] m. f. n.

(-daḥ-dī-dam) Eating food &c. (see the meanings of anna); also eating the metaphysical or mystical anna 2. 2.; said e. g. of the Supreme Soul ‘ahamannamahamannādaḥ’ (comm. advaita ātmā nirañjanopi sannahamevānnamannādaśca); or ‘saiṣā virāḍannādī’ (comm. saiṣā virāḍdaśasaṃkhyā satyannaṃ cānnādinī ca). E. anna and āda (ad, kṛt aff. aṇ). [Nb. This etymol. is the regular one, but according to the comm. of Pāṇ., restricted to the classical dialect; in the Vedas the word is treated as if the latter part were ada (ad, kṛt aff. ac) or, in other words: annāda, fem. ºdī is in the vaidik literature udātta on the last syllable, while in the classical dialect it would be udātta on the first. This is the bearing of the instance annādāya (dative of annāda) in the comm. on the Kārikā to Pāṇini Iii. 1. 85., when the comm. observes ‘aṇviṣayec’; comp. Mahābhāṣya on Pāṇ. Iii. 2. 1.; ‘annādāyeti ca kṛtāṃ vyatyayaśchandasi’ . annādāyeti ca kṛtāṃ vyatyayaśchandasi draṣṭavyaḥ . annādāyānnapataye . āhutimannādīṃ hutvā . karmaṇyaṇ; whereupon Kaiyyaṭa: annādāyeti . annamattītyaṇaḥ prasaṅgecpratyayaḥ kriyate . tena annaadāyetyevamavagraha upapadyate.—In the present edition of Pāṇini there is a misprint annādāyaḥ instead of annādāya (the latter being correctly given in the corresponding place of the Siddh. Kaum. fol. 217 b. line 15); in the mutilated reprint of that edition the error has been repeated, as in similar cases, and somewhere else a new vaidik word has been founded on it viz ‘annādāya adj. ved.’ with a meaning ‘taking food’ and with an etymology ‘anna and ādāya’; it needs not be observed that the quoted words ‘aṇviṣayec’ would become quite meaningless with such a formation ‘annādāya adj.’, since the āgama yuk could not occur in a derivative with kṛt aff. ac.]
