Apsukṣit (अप्सुक्षित्):—[=apsu-kṣit] [from apsu] mfn. dwelling within the clouds, in the region between heaven and earth, [Ṛg-veda i, 139, 11.]Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: Goldstücker Sanskrit-English Dictionary
Apsukṣit (अप्सुक्षित्):—[tatpurusha compound] m. (-t) (ved.) Residing in the intermediate region, in the region between heaven and earth, viz. the eleven gods which form one class, besides the class of eleven gods which reside in heaven, and another class of eleven gods which reside over the earth. (An interpretation ‘residing in the waters’ has been applied to these gods probably in order to suggest what Hindu mythology ought to have been, but it is neither countenanced by Sāyaṇa nor by Mahīdh. nor by any other authority.) E. apsu (loc. of ap 2.) and kṣit.
[Sanskrit to German]
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.
