Bhūyosya (भूयोस्य) or Bhūyasya or Bhūyaso.—with (in Mahāvastu rarely without) mātrayā (instr. of Sanskrit mātrā), or once mātrāṃ, = Pali bhiyyoso-mattāya, adv. or adverbial phrase, in specially high degree. The common [Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit] expression is bhūyasyā (instr. fem. of Sanskrit bhūyas-) mātrayā, e.g. Saddharmapuṇḍarīka 23.1; Lalitavistara 321.17; Mahāvastu ii.345.2 (verse, probably read with v.l. °sya, m.c.); exceptionally bhūyasya (a m.c.?) mātrāṃ (so mss., Senart em. °aṃ) Mahāvastu ii.338.13 (verse); twice, at least, in Mahāvastu the noun mātrayā is omitted (by error?), and text presents bhūyasya (so, a! but here prose) alone, i.231.13. or, according to Senart with 5 of 6 mss., bhūyosya (compare Pali) i.3.14 (prose); in Saddharmapuṇḍarīka 71.10 (prose) ed. with Nepalese mss. has the usual bhūyasyā mātrayā, but Kashgar recension bhūyaso (intending Sanskrit °śo; compare Pali bhiyyoso) mātrayā. See also s.v. yadbhūyasā.

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.
