Bhāvavikāra (भावविकार).—Kinds of verbal activity which are described to be six in number viz. production, existence, transformation, growth, decay and destruction. These six modes of existence first mentioned by Vāŗș-yayani and quoted by Yāska are explained philosophically by Bhartŗhari as a mere appearance of the Śabdabrahman or Sattā when one of its own powers, the time factor (कालशक्ति (kālaśakti)) is superimposed upon it, and as a result of that superimposition, it (i.e. the Śabdabrahman) appears as a process; cf. षड् भावाविकारा भवन्ति इति वार्ष्या-यणिः । जायते अस्ति विपरिणमते वर्धते अपक्षीयते विनश्यति इति । (ṣaḍ bhāvāvikārā bhavanti iti vārṣyā-yaṇiḥ | jāyate asti vipariṇamate vardhate apakṣīyate vinaśyati iti |) Nir.I.2; cf. also Vākyapadiya III.30.

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.
