Avavaraka (अववरक).—(also avaraka? m. or nt.; = Pali ovaraka, Sanskrit apavaraka, which is read also in mss. of Divy), [Page075-a+ 71] a secret apartment or chamber; acc. to Speyer Av ii.158.10 n., a subterranean room. Several times mss. (of Av, Divy) present avaraka, which might be regarded as a case of haplology or haplography; but twice, at least, Pali seems to read (a)varaka instead of ovaraka: jāto (')varake Jāt. i.391.21 and Vv comm. 158.14 (PTSD would understand jāt' ovarake; both prose): KP 71.1 (prose) gṛhe vā layane vā avavarake vā; Mmk 519.27 (prose) guhye pradeśe avavarake vā; 534.10 (verse) prachanne…svagṛhe vāvava- rake 'pi ca (meter corrupt); Av ii.54.5 avarakaṃ praviṣṭā udbandhanahetoḥ (to hang herself); here text with ms. avara°; 55.7 avavarakam (so ms., text avara°) avabhā- samānā; 158.10 avavarakaṃ praviśa, and °kaṃ praviṣṭā; Divy 471.8 apavarakaṃ (no v.l.) prāviśat; avavarake (or avarake) strī prasūtā Divy 471.9 (text apav°, but no ms. has -p-; they point to avarake or avavarake); 479.25 (text apav°, but all mss. avarake), 26—27 (text apav° with 1 ms., 2 mss. (a)varake, actually varake after -e).

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family. 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.
