Diśi (दिशि).—(= AMg. disi, for Sanskrit diś, diśā; not in Pali), direction. Noted only in (Ārya-)Mañjuśrīmūlakalpa, but not rare there; usually acc. sg. diśim; sometimes (notably 205.26, where it seems clearly to be taken so, § 4.59, end) this could be interpreted as loc. diśi plus ‘hiatus-bridging’ m; among the cases which are certainly acc. are: dakṣiṇāṃ diśim āśritāḥ (Ārya-)Mañjuśrīmūlakalpa 326.18, and…āśritya 626.26; prāciṃ (°cīṃ) diśim upādāya 620.1 (these all verses). The great corruption of the text of (Ārya-)Mañjuśrīmūlakalpa might tempt to emendation (diśam would be easy), but AMg. seems to confirm the form.
