Mānatva (मानत्व).—nt. (also mānāpya, q.v.; = Pali mānatta), a kind of penance which is superimposed, after parivāsa, on a monk guilty of a saṃghāvaśeṣa offense which he has concealed: [Prātimokṣasūtra des Sarvāstivādins] 487.11—12 bhikṣuṇā…mānatvaṃ (12) caritavyaṃ bhavati, cīrṇa-mānatvo (after he has undergone the m°) bhikṣur…; for mānāpya, Mahāvyutpatti 8652—5, v.l. mānatva (so Index; ed. mānātva), but Mironov mānāpya without v.l.; Tibetan renders Mahāvyutpatti mgu bar bya ba, making glad ([Tibetan-English Dictionary] = ārādhanā); Chin. respectful behavior; this accords with the Pali commentary (629.29) on the Vin. passage (iii.186.15 f., bhikkhunā…bhikkhu-mānattāya paṭi- pajjitabbaṃ, ciṇṇamānatto bhikkhu…) corresponding to [Prātimokṣasūtra des Sarvāstivādins] 487.11—12 above; the commentary says, bhikkhu-mānattāyā ti bhikkhūnaṃ mānanabhāvāya, ārādhanatthāyā (compare [Tibetan-English Dictionary] on Tibetan above) ti vuttaṃ hoti; it thus appears that, according to both northern and southern tradition, this penance consisted in, or at least involved, some kind of ceremonial homage paid by the culprit to the general community of monks. This can be interpreted as supporting the apparent [etymology], māna-tva, condition of (paying) respect.

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.
