General definition (in Hinduism)

[«previous next»] — Atmanepada in Hinduism glossary
Source: Learn Sanskrit: Ātmanepada

Ātmanepada, meaning "word for the self." The traditional definition is that the "fruit of action," meaning the result, goes to the one who acts. Hence, they are "self-serving" verbs, or verbs "for the self." We can think of the ātmanepada verbs as reflexive verbs since the result of the action, whatever it is, goes back to whatever acted in the first place.
