Apāsana (अपासन):—[tatpurusha compound] n.

(-nam) I. Throwing away, quitting, fore-going. E. as (cl. 4.) with apa, kṛt aff. lyuṭ. Ii. Killing (comm. on the Amarak. and Hemach. = māraṇa; a special meaning ‘carnage’ given to this word is without authority). E. Accord. to the commentators on the Amarak. like the former; but it seems preferable to derive the latter meaning from a denom. apāsi (apa-asu, denom. aff. ṇic), kṛt aff. lyuṭ; lit. ‘making to lose the life’; or from as ‘to be’ in the caus. with apa, kṛt aff. lyuṭ lit. ‘to produce cessation of existence’.

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.
