Parisaṃsthita (परिसंस्थित).—(?) (ppp. of pari-saṃ-sthā, of which no other form seems to be recorded except the caus., see prec., and Pali parisaṃṭhāti, in a very different meaning; °sthita occurs once in Mahābhārata Crit. ed. 1.114.59 in meaning standing round about, of attendant deities; AMg. pari- saṃṭhiya, well-established, [Ardha-Māgadhī Dictionary]), established: (iyaṃ sarvāvatī lokadhātū…) apagatanadīmahānadī parisaṃ- sthitā Saddharmapuṇḍarīka 244.12 (prose; ed. fails to separate from the prec. word). But perhaps the caus. parisaṃsthāpitā (see prec.) should be read with WT; no ms. is reported with it but some mss. have caus. forms, and the parallel 246.7 looks in this direction.
