Pakvataila (पक्वतैल).—(compare Pali telaṃ pakkaṃ, Dhp. comm. i.12.8, oil has been prepared, lit. cooked, sc. to be used as ointment), prepared oil (ointment?): te dāni °lena bhaga- vantaṃ nimantrayetsuḥ Mv iii.329.14. The corresp. Pali cpd. seems to be pāka-tela; e.g. Dhp. comm. iii.311.8—9 sata-pāka-telena, with oil a hundred times refined (Bur- lingame, HOS 30.105). Is -āk- here for -akk- by the Morengesetz ? The form to be expected is Pali pakka = pakva.
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.
