Asakṛt (असकृत्) refers to “more than once”, according to Bāṇa’s Kādambarī (p. 226).—There are apparently several Tantric rites that Bāṇa pejoratively associates with the priest: [...] “his collection of practices for mastering mantras for invisibility had grown”; “he was acquainted with a hundred tales about the marvels of the Śrīparvata mountain”; “his ear-cavities were punched by those possessed by Piśāca-demons, who had run to him when struck by white mustard seed he had empowered with mantras more than once (asakṛt)”.
Kavya (काव्य, kavya) refers to Sanskrit poetry, a popular ancient Indian tradition of literature. There have been many Sanskrit poets over the ages, hailing from ancient India and beyond. This topic includes mahakavya, or ‘epic poetry’ and natya, or ‘dramatic poetry’.
Ganitashastra (Mathematics and Algebra)Source: archive.org: Hindu Mathematics
Asakṛt (असकृत्) or Asakṛtsamīkaraṇa refers to “multiple equations” and represents one of the classes of Samīkaraṇa (“equations”), according to the principles of Bījagaṇita (“algebra” or ‘science of calculation’), according to Gaṇita-śāstra, ancient Indian mathematics and astronomy.—Brahmagupta (628) in the Brāhmasphuṭasiddhānta has classified equations as three classes [e.g., equations in one unknown (ekavarṇa-samīkaraṇa)] [...]. Bhāskara II in the Bījagaṇita distinguishes two kinds of indeterminate equations: (1) sakṛt-samīkaraṇa (single equations) and (2) asakṛt-samīkaraṇa (multiple equations).
Ganitashastra (शिल्पशास्त्र, gaṇitaśāstra) refers to the ancient Indian science of mathematics, algebra, number theory, arithmetic, etc. Closely allied with astronomy, both were commonly taught and studied in universities, even since the 1st millennium BCE. Ganita-shastra also includes ritualistic math-books such as the Shulba-sutras.
