nibbuta : (pp. of nibbāti) got cold; become passionless; was extinguished.

Source: Sutta: The Pali Text Society's Pali-English Dictionary

Nibbuta, (adj.) (Nibbuta represents Sk. nirvṛta (e.g. AvŚ I. 48) as well as nivṛta, both pp. of vṛ, which in itself combines two meanings, as exhibited in cognate languages and in Sk. itself: (a) Idg. ǔer to cover, cover up (Lat. aperio=*apa-vero to cover up, Sk. varutram upper garment, “cover”) and (b) *ǔel to resolve, roll, move (Lat. volvo=revolve; Gr. e(λic, e)lu/w; Sk. vāṇa reed=Lat. ulva; Sk. ūrmi wave; P. valli creeper, valita wrinkled). *ǔer is represented in P. by e.g. vivarati to open, nivāreti to cover, obstruct, nīvaraṇa, nivāraṇa obstruction; *ǔel by āvuta, khandh-āvāra, parivāra, vyāvaṭa (busy with=moving about), samparivāreti. Thus we gain the two meanings combined and used promiscuously in the one word because of their semantic affinity: (a) *nivṛta covered up, extinguished, quenched, and (b) *nirvṛta without movement, with motion finished (cp. niṭṭhita), ceasing, exhaustion, both represented by P. nibbuta.—In derivations we have besides the rootform vṛ (=P. bbu°) that with guṇa vṝ (cp. Sk. vārayati, vrāyati) or vrā=P. * bbā° (with which also cp. paṭivāṇa=*prativāraṇa). The former is in nibbuti (ceasing, extinction, with meaning partly influenced by nibbuṭṭhi=Sk. nirvṛṣṭi pouring of water), the latter in Instr. nibbāti and nibbāyati (to cease or to go out) and trs. nibbāpeti (Caus. : to make cease, to stop or cool) and further in nibbāna (nt. Instr. abstr.) (the dying out)) (lit.) extinguished (of fire), cooled, quenched (fig.) desireless (often with nicchāta & sītibhūta), appeased, pleased, happy.—(a) (lit.) aggi anāhāro n. M.
