pāhuṇā (पाहुणा).—m (prāghurṇa S) A stranger, a visitor, a guest; a person alighted to stay a few days, or one dropped in to partake of a meal, or one (whether a relative, an acquaintance, or an absolute stranger) invited to one's house from a distant place (i. e. not a co-resident in one's town or village). pāhuṇā has not the sense of Friend or person invited to a dinner, or the indiscriminateness and amplitude of the English word Guest. Pr. pāhuṇēṃ jāvēṃ āṇi daivēṃ khāvēṃ Go as a guest, but your fare will be according to your own fortune. Pr. ēka pāhuṇā ghara pāhuṇēṃ Invite one and you must expect the household. Pr. hasatīlā pā0 raḍatīlā hī pā0 Evil will come whether you receive it well or ill, cheerfully or gloomily. Pr. dōhō gharacā pā0 upāsī mēlā Betwixt two stools a person falls to the ground; duos qui sequitur lepores neutrum capit. Also bahutācā pā0 upavāsī The guest of many houses remains fasting. Ex. ēka na dharitāṃ upāsanā || sādha- kīṃ prayatna kēlē nānā || tarīṃ sākṣātkāra navhēci jāṇā || bahutācā pā0 upavāsī || Applied often in inculcating the necessity of singlemindedness in worship or in attachment. Luke xvi. 13. 2 fig. A term for the red ant cāñcaḍa when it makes its first appearance in the season.
