Dhyuṣita (ध्युषित).—(?) , adj., epithet of garments or cloth, according to [Boehtlingk] blendend weiss: cīvarāni (so) °tāni Kāraṇḍavvūha 78.22; °ta-paṭam 81.7, see s.v. indra-paṭa. There is a very dubious record of a Sanskrit n. pr. (proper name) Dhyuṣitāśva, [Boehtlingk and Roth], but this is probably incorrect. The word paṭa is often preceded in composition by duṣya- or dūṣya-, designating a very fine cloth, and I am inclined to read this; the text of Kāraṇḍavvūha is so corrupt that it seems not implausible.

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.
