Anyamanya (अन्यमन्य).—adj. or pron. (= Pali aññamañña, in both mgs.; compare anyonya), (1) one another; as pron., adj., or adv. (°nyaṃ) or in composition, mutual, reciprocal (= an- yonya): Saddharmapuṇḍarīka 209.5 (verse) paraṃparā eva tathānyamanyaṃ te vyākariṣyanti; 359.2 (verse) ye cānyamanyasya karonti ghoṣān; Lalitavistara 176.9 (verse) anyamanyopacayena, by mutual assistance; Suvarṇabhāsottamasūtra 16.12 (verse) anyamanyānukūlena; Rāṣṭrapālaparipṛcchā 38.11 (verse). In prose of most texts replaced by anyonya; but Mahāvastu has it often in prose. Note anyonya Saddharmapuṇḍarīka 163.11, 12; Lalitavistara 51.16; 410.19, 20; while in the same passage (prose) anyamanya is used in Mahāvastu i.41.8 = 230.3 = iii.334.11 = 341.15 (but in i.240.13 anyonya). Inflected like anyonya in Sanskrit: °nyaṃ, acc., Mahāvastu i.10.12 (here adv.); 13.8; ii.436.16, 17; iii.453.7; °nyasya i.27.7; 266.1; °nyasmiṃ i.16.10; (2) like Pali aññamañña and like anyonya in [Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit], also various, different, with no reciprocal sense: Saddharmapuṇḍarīka 125.14 (verse) °nyehi arthehi; 358.11 (verse) ghoṣāṃs tatha cānyamanyān; in this meaning also replaced by anyonya in prose generally, but in Mahāvastu retained in prose: iii.390.5 °nyāhi parivrājikāhi.

context information

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.
