Annādya (अन्नाद्य):—I. [karmadharaya compound] n.

(-dyam) 1) Food fit to be eaten, food in general, used in the same sense as anna; also elliptically: the eating of food; e. g. nivartathāmyāyuṣennādyāya (comm. = annabhakṣaṇāya); or annādyāya…abhiṣiñcāmi (comm. annādyamannabhakṣaṇasāmarthyam where the ‘fitness’ (of eating food) however, is rather implied by the dative instead of inhering to the meaning of the base); or annādyādeḥ saṃvibhāgo bhūtebhyaśca yathārhataḥ; and in the mystical acceptation of anna; e. g. athātmanennādyamāgāyat; or etamṛgvedamabhyatapaṃstasyābhitaptasya yaśasteja indriyaṃ vīryamannādyaṃ rasojāyata (comm. annādyamannaṃ ca tadādyaṃ ca yenopayujyamānenāhanyahani devānāṃ sthitiḥ syāttadannādyameṣa rasojāyata yāgādilakṣaṇātkarmaṇaḥ).

2) Food fit for the occasion at which it is eaten, proper food; e. g. kuryādaharahaḥ śrāddhamannādyenodakena (comm. annādyeneti tilairvrīhibhiryavairityāderupādānam); or annādyena (scil. brāhmaṇānbhojayet) i. e. with choice dishes (comm. = miṣṭānnena).

3) Boiled rice. E. anna and ādya (to be eaten). [In Röer’s valuable edition of Śaṅkara’s comm. on the Bṛhadār., tadadyaṃ p. 279 (annādyamannameva tadadyaṃ ca) is probably a misprint for tadādyaṃ, conformably to similar explanations of the same author, e. g. Bṛhadār. p. 100, Chhānd. p. 161.] Ii. [bahuvrihi compound] m. f. n.

(-dyaḥ-dyā-dyam) Rice and so on (see the meanings of anna); the same as if the latter part of the compound were ādi; e. g. sārvavarṇikamannādyaṃ saṃnīyāplāvya vāriṇā (comm. = sarvaprakāramannādikaṃ vyañjanādibhirekīkṛtya &c.). E. anna and ādya (first).

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.
