Avadyabhīru (अवद्यभीरु).—dreading (and shunning) reproach (blame, evil, sin), epithet of the family into which a Bodhisattva is born in his last existence: Mahāvastu i.198.1; ii.1.11; Lalitavistara 24.4. All these are forms of the same passage; in Lalitavistara text anava- dya-, with v.l. avadya-; in Mahāvastu ii.1.11 Senart reads anava- dya, tho he recognizes at i p. 532 that the corrupt mss. point rather to avadya-, which he reads with mss. at i.198.1. The reading avadya- is confirmed by Tibetan on Lalitavistara kha na ma tho bas (= avadya, see [Tibetan-English Dictionary] s.v.) ḥjigs pa (= bhīru). Note the noun avadya-bhī Rig Veda 10.107.3 (isolated).
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.
