Nārāyaṇa Paṇḍita (नारायण पण्डित) (fl. 1053 A.D.) is mentioned in the “Dive Agar plate of Mummuṇirāja”. Accordingly, “The illustrious King Mummuṇideva lays down the settlement for the learned Brāhmaṇas endowed with wisdom, who are prominent among the sixteen representatives (mahattarakas) residing at Āgara-dīpaka, in the presence of principal royal officers such as... the Purōhita (family-priest), the illustrious Nārāyaṇa Paṇḍita...”.

This copper plate (mentioning Nārāyaṇa Paṇḍita) was discovered at Dīve Āgar in the Śrīvardhana-tālukā of the Kolābā District in North Koṅkaṇ. It is dated on the fifth tithi of the dark fortnight of Āṣāḍha in the Śaka year 975, the cyclic year being Vijaya. Its object is to record a vyavasthā (settlement) in respect of the village Dīpakāgara together with its three hamlets, viz. Voritalī, Katila and Kalaija.

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.
