Pañcāṅgika (पञ्चाङ्गिक).—a. five-membered.

Pañcāṅgika is a Sanskrit compound consisting of the terms pañcan and aṅgika (अङ्गिक).

Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: Edgerton Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit Dictionary

Pañcāṅgika (पञ्चाङ्गिक).—adj. (in general sense Sanskrit), (1) epithet of tūrya (as in Pali pañcaṅgika-turiya), (instrumental music) of five kinds (listed in [Pali Text Society’s Pali-English Dictionary] s.v. for Pali): °kasya tūryasya Mahāvastu i.194.13; iii.229.4; °kaṃ tūryaṃ Karmavibhaṅga (and Karmavibhaṅgopadeśa) 87.16; °ka- tūrya-śabdo 88.2; in view of this last, °ka-tulya-ravā Mahāvastu i.171.4 (verse), epithet of the Buddha's voice, is doubtless to be em. to °ka-tūrya-ravā; (2) epithet of samādhi (as in Pali pañcaṅgika is epithet of jhāna; the five elements listed [Pali Text Society’s Pali-English Dictionary] s.v. from Dhs 83; a partly different list s.v. samādhi): ārya-pa°-samādhi-saṃpannāḥ Mahāvastu iii.321.15, and ārya- mahā-pa°-samyaksamādhi-saṃpannā(ḥ) 16 (the difference, if any, is not made clear); (3) as epithet of gods, °kānāṃ ca devakoṭīnāṃ Mahāvastu iii.339.2, meaning not clear; perhaps pos- sessing the five ‘gentlemanly qualities’ (Pali pañcaṅga, see s.v. aṅga); or of five groups?

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.
