Nirvāṇāṅgulimālika (निर्वाणाङ्गुलिमालिक).—(loc. °ke), name of one or (more likely, with Suzuki and Bendall and Rouse) two works: Laṅkāvatāra-sūtra 258.4 (v.l. Nirmāṇ°, one ms. Nirvāṇe 'ṅgu°), cited Śikṣāsamuccaya 133.4 (mss. °aka). The first work, Nirvāṇa(-sūtra), presumably means the (Mahā-) parinirvāṇa-sūtra; for the second see Aṅgulimālika, °līya.

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.
