Apanuda (अपनुद):—[tatpurusha compound] m. f. n.

(-daḥ-dā-dam) Who or what removes; only in composition with śoka i. e. śokāpanuda; on which word a Vārttika (Pāṇ. Iii. 2. 5.) observes that it does not merely convey the negative notion ‘removing pain’ but the positive idea ‘affording joy’, for the word which would express the negative meaning ‘removing pain’ is, according to Patanjali and his comm. śokāpanoda. (Patanj. śokāpanudaḥ putro jātaḥ…yaśca śokamapanudati śokāpanodaḥ ... Kaiyy. yaḥ saṃsārānityatodbhāvanādinā śokameva nivartayati na tu sukhamutpādayati sa śokāpanodaḥ ... Siddhāntak. yaśca saṃsārāsāratvopadeśena śokamapanudati sa śokāpanodaḥ.) In this sense therefore are to be understood passages like: paurā nivartadhvamiti nyagadīttātasya śokāpanudā bhaveta; or śarmadaṃ mārutiṃ dūtaṃ viṣamasthaḥ kapidvipam . śokāpanudamavyagraṃ prāyuṅkta kapikuñjaraḥ ... E. nud with apa, kṛt aff. ka.

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.
