Sanskrit-English dictionary

Osaraṇa (ओसरण).—nt. (to next; = Pali id.), entrance, approach: Mv ii.37.9 osaraṇe (mss. osakaṇe) ca bharitā addaśi pramadā, at the entrance (to the king's palace)…(other- wise Senart); ii.108.8 kasya eṣa osaraṇaśabdaḥ (? mss. te saraṇa°, or te śaraśa°), whose noise of approach is this? In Mv iii.401.1 osaraṇāni, in a line otherwise hopelessly corrupt, corresponds to the same word in the same verse of Pali Sn 538, the rest of which seems also corrupt (so ed.); the comm. says it means heretical views (ogahanāni titthāni, diṭṭhiyo). Senart's em. and interpretation of the line are unconvincing; but the Pali is also dubious, and its comm. questionable. I cannot solve the problem.

context information

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family. 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.
