Cetayika (चेतयिक).—(?) (v.l. ve°), Mahāvastu iii.442.10, some sort of enter-tainer. Form and meaning alike obscure; no correspondent in parallel passages iii.113.4 (see Senart's note here) etc. If the reading ve- were accepted, one might think of reading vetālika or °ḍika (Sanskrit vaitālika), were it not for the fact that this word seems likely to have been read in 442.8 in the same list (Senart here tālika, but mss. vetaddika, vetarddi°), and in 113.2 Senart em. vaitālika for mss. tetalika, tetarika.

context information

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family. 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.
