General definition (in Hinduism)Source: archive.org: Vedic index of Names and Subjects
Nāvaprabhraṃśana (नावप्रभ्रंशन), the “sliding down of the ship”, is read in Whitney and Roth’s text of the Atharvaveda, and has been connected by Weber and others with Manor-avasarpaṇa, the name in the Śatapatha-brāhmaṇa of the northern mountain on which Manu’s ship settled on the subsidence of the deluge.Source: Wikisource: A history of Sanskrit literature
Nāvaprabhraṃśana (नावप्रभ्रंशन), “sinking of the ship”, is the name of a mountain mentioned in the Atharvaveda, and corresponds with Naubandhana.—The Atharva-veda also mentions two other mountains of the Himālaya. One of these is called Trikakud, the "three-peaked" (in the later literature Trikūṭa, and even now Trikōta), through the valley at the foot of which flows the Asiknī (Chenab). The other is Nāvaprabhraṃśana (“sinking of the ship”), doubtless identical with the Naubandhana (“binding of the ship”) of the epic and the Manoravasarpaṇa of the Śatapatha-brāhmaṇa, on which the ship of Manu is said to have rested when the deluge subsided.

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.
