Khaṅkhaṭa (खङ्खट).—(°-) (in [compound]), according to Tibetan (re śig) a little: svaro Mūla-Sarvāstivāda-Vinaya ii.80.10, a little sound. (MW quotes from Wil- son khaṅkhaṇā, a tinkling sound.) khakkhaṭa would not be a likely reading here since the omen is favorable, indicating rebirth as a god.

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.
