Bhramantra (भ्रमन्त्र).—nt., a high number: Mahāvyutpatti 7881 = Tibetan gzhal thim (thil); gzhal = mātra, suggesting bhramātra, q.v., as the true reading. However, the form is cited from [Page413-b+ 52] Gaṇḍavyūha, and Gaṇḍavyūha 133.17 has the same form as Mahāvyutpatti. In Gaṇḍavyūha 106.7 atramantrā, q.v., seems to correspond.
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.
