Jinamitra (जिनमित्र) refers to one of the Pundits travelling with Rin-chen-bzaṅ-po (Ratnabhadra): one of the translators of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā: one of the three great works of Vāgbhaṭa.—Ratnabhadra paid three visits to adjacent Kashmir and there studied Tantrayāna with 75 pundits; the most eminent among them were Śraddhākaravarman, Kamalagupta, and Jinamitra. At the age of 49, he joined the order of Bla-chen, which sought to remedy the abuses of Buddhism that had cropped up after its persecution by King Glaṅ-dar-ma.

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.
