Dhaura (धौर).—(?) = (or error for?) Sanskrit dhaureya, in (puruṣa-siṃhena puruṣarṣabheṇa) puruṣa-dhaureṇa (puruṣajāne- yena, see -jāneya) Mahāvastu ii.133.8 (prose); in essentially the same passage in which other texts read puruṣa-dhaureyeṇa, but in Mahāvastu with v.l. °dhaureṇa, Lalitavistara 350.12; Mahāvastu i.229.8; ii.284.18. The word dhaureya, = Pali dhoreyya and (purisa-)dhorayha, occurs occasionally in Sanskrit, and seems to mean primarily stout animal, capable of bearing burdens, but then secondarily best of his kind (= mukhya, Schmidt, Nachträge). In the cliché passage just mentioned, it refers to superior men, especially Buddhas (used in reference to Śākya- muni at the moment of enlightenment). In…dhīrā dhau- reyā dhṛtimanto…, in the midst of a long description of the inhabitants of Sukhāvatī, Sukhāvatīvyūha 61.6 (prose); in Mahāvastu ii.364.16 (verse), of a man who worships at stūpas, dṛḍhavīryo dṛḍhasthāmo dhaureyo (replaced by vīraś ca in citation Śikṣāsamuccaya 299.3) dṛḍhavikramo. In all these it is not entirely clear how definite the lit. meaning, stout animal, remained. In any case (puruṣa-)dhaureya seems pretty well established as standard Sanskrit; and I suspect that dhaura is a mere error.
