Jīvati (जीवति).—(for Sanskrit jīyate, pass. to jayati), is conquered, is lost: yasya jitaṃ nātha jīvati Mv iii.91.19 (verse) = Pali [Page244-a+ 71] Dhp. 179 yassa jitaṃ nāvajīyati, which proves the meaning (and suggests nāva- for nātha = na atha?); if not a mere corruption, change of y to v, § 2.31.
Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family.
