Bhaṅgakula (भङ्गकुल).—(?) , Mahāvastu ii.251.6, in a list of enemies of birds, all gen. pl., after sākuntikānām (śā°), cāṇḍālakānām (mss. ca°), mṛgalubdhakānām, biḍālakroṣṭukānām, and nakulānām, comes (in text) bhaṅgakulānām (but mss. both °kulān; one ms. bhaṅgeṇa—so, ṇ!—for bhaṅga-). Senart thinks of muṅgusa-kulānām (Pali Lex. muṅgusa, mongoose, Childers); closer to the mss. would be AMg. maṅgusa, id. As Senart notes, this would seem to duplicate nakulānām, the preceding term. Possibly, however, maṅgusānām may have been the orig. reading, the last part corrupted by confusion with nakula. It might, possibly, have designated a different species of mongoose from nakula, which would justify the collocation of the two words.
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.
