Anokāśa (अनोकाश).—adj. [bahuvrīhi] (= Pali anokāsa; for an-ava- kāśa), having no sufficient space, corwded: Mahāvastu i.175.12 °śā kṛtā svargā, the heavenly worlds are made crowded (by Buddha's appearance, which leads many to heaven). Most mss. read anākāśā, but there can be little doubt that Senart's text is correct.
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.
