Pradīkṣate (प्रदीक्षते).—(compare § 2.28), in Lalitavistara 185.7 (verse) seems = pratīkṣ°, gazes (longingly) towards: catvāri lokapālāḥ sasainyakās te tava °kṣante, dāsyāma caturi pātrāṃ… Cf. parallel udīkṣate, line 9. The mss. are unanimous (exc. one pravīkṣ°); Calcutta (see LV.) interprets by pratīkṣ°, and no other meaning seems possible (pra plus dīkṣ-, be consecrated, is im- plausible).
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.
