Vyakarana (Sanskrit grammar)

Source: Wikisource: A dictionary of Sanskrit grammar

1) Bha (भ).—The letter or sound भ् (bh) with the vowel अ (a) added for facility of utterance;

2) Bha.—A technical term in the Grammar of Panini given to a noun base before such case and taddhita affixes as begin with any vowel or with the consonant य् (y). The utility of this designation of भ (bha) to the base is (l) to prevent the substitutes which are enjoined for the final vowel or consonant of a pada (a word ending with a case-affix or a base before case and tad. affixes beginning with any consonant excepting य् (y)) just as the substitution of Visarga, anusvara, the first or third consonant, and others given in P. VIII. 4.37 and the following. For the various changes and operations for a base termed भ (bha) see P. VI. 4.129 to 175.

bhā : (f.) the light; splendour.

Source: Sutta: The Pali Text Society's Pali-English Dictionary

Bhā, (f.) (cp. Vedic bhā & bhāḥ nt. ) light, splendour; given as name of a jewel at an extremely doubtful passage J. V, 317, 318, where T. reads “vara taṃ bhaññam icchasi,” & C. explains. : “bhā ti ratanass’etaṃ nāmaṃ.” The v. l. for bhaññaṃ is bhuñjaṃ; the passage may be corrupt from “varatu bhavaṃ yam icchasi.” (Page 501)

— or —

Bha, (indecl.) the letter or sound (syllable) bh; figuring in Bdhgh’s exegesis of the N. Bhagavā as representing bhava, whereas ga stands for gamana, va for vanta KhA 109.—Like ba° we often find bha° mixed up with pa°; — see e.g. bhaṇḍa bhaṇḍati; bh represents b. in bhasta=Sk. basta, bhisa=Sk. bisa, bhusa=Sk. buśa.—bha-kāra the sound (or ending) °bha, which at Vin. IV, 7 is given as implying contempt or abuse, among other low terms (hīnā akkosā). This refers also to the sound (ending) °ya (see ya-kāra). The explanation for this probably is that °bha is abstracted from words ending thus, where the word itself meant something inferior or contemptible, and this shade of meaning was regarded as inhering in the ending, not in the root of the word, as e.g. in ibbha (menial). (Page 495)

context information

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.
