(likewise in Mahāvastu ii.157.7) it also means cloth in general, as used to garb persons initiated in various religious orders, see s.v. indra-paṭa; (2) in Mahāvastu iii.31.11 apparently piece, fragment (of a stone; compare Sanskrit paṭati, splits), if the text is right: (upalānāṃ) paṭaṃ (so mss., Senart paṭāṃ) chittvā, splitting off a piece of the stones; (3) in Lalitavistara 315.15 (verse) assumed to be a kind of bird, but reading uncertain; Lefm. [Page316-a+ 71] vīkṣasva bodhimaṇḍe paṭukroñcāhaṃsakokilamayūrāḥ, with v.l. paṭa for paṭu; Calcutta (see LV.) paṭa-; Tibetan pa ta kun ta (presumably understanding it as name of a single bird) for paṭa(or paṭu-)kroñca (the rest of the [compound] is correctly ren- dered in Tibetan); neither paṭa nor paṭu seems to be known as a bird-name; if paṭu is right, could it not be taken as adv. with vīkṣasva ? look keenly, sharply, at the…; [(4) on Lalitavistara 127.17 for paṭopachedana read vaṭṭopa°, supported by best ms. and Pali; see s.v. vaṭṭa.]

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.
