Bhadrajit (भद्रजित्).—name of a disciple of Buddha: Sukhāvatīvyūha 2.3; in form the name = Pali Bhaddaji, but actually it is evident that it is a substitute for Bhadrika (2), since it follows the names of the four other bhadravargīya; perhaps it was altered under the influence of Aśvajit, the second of this list.

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.
