Dharmarājikā (धर्मराजिका).—once dhārm° (from dharmarājan 1), [Page281-a+ 71] lit. (edifice) which belongs to (serves for relics of) the king of the doctrine (= Buddha); a stūpa. So correctly [Boehtlingk and Roth]; Burnouf Intr. 370 n. 1 and 631 is uncertain; Divyāvadāna Index wrongly royal edict on the law. The meaning seems clear from (caturaśīti-) dharmarājikā-sahasraṃ pratiṣṭhāpayeyam Divyāvadāna 381.14, °sraṃ pratiṣṭhāpitam 18, 23, while in the same passage, describing the same performance, in verse, we read: cakre stūpānāṃ…sāśīti…sahasram 21. To my mind this settles the matter. Other occurrences, always with forms of pratiṣṭhāpayati, establishes, founds: Divyāvadāna 379.22; 381.5; 402.19; 405.15, 16; 419.15; 429.13; 433.27; 434.1; also dhārmarājikā 368.28.
