Āvyūhati (आव्यूहति) or Āyūhati.—exerts oneself towards, carries out, performs, with acc.: Mūla-madhyamaka-kārikā 298.13; 517.20 sa na kaṃcid dharmam āvyūhati nirvyūhati tasyaivam anā- vyūhato 'nirvyūhatas traidhātuke cittaṃ na sajjati. Is nirvyūhati a near-synonym of āvyūhati, as niryūhati certainly is of āyūhati in Gaṇḍavyūha? Or is it (as assumed by Tibetan and La Vallée-Poussin) an antonym of āvyūhati, as niryūhati is of āyūhati in Laṅkāvatāra-sūtra, and as (a)niryūha is of (an)āyūha? See s.vv anāyūha, anāvyūha, anirvyūha.

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.
