Prāpta (प्राप्त).—(-prāpta), ppp. (= Sanskrit id., Pali -patta), in āścarya-, adbhuta-pr° generally means filled with astonishment and wonder (e.g. Saddharmapuṇḍarīka 188.5). But in Saddharmapuṇḍarīka 183.4—5 āścaryaprāptā …adbhutaprāptā ime ṣoḍaśa śrāmaṇerāḥ, rather, some- thing like arrived at a wonderful thing or condition, marvel- ously successful. In Kāśyapa Parivarta 9.5 and 10.5 dāntājāneya-prāpta (bodhisattva), and Kāśyapa Parivarta 9.14; 10.17, 20 ājanya-prāpta (bodhisattva), clearly arrived at (the condition of being…) i.e. become (tamed) noble (steeds, see ājanya, ājāneya). In most of these, Tibetan renders prāpta by thob pa, which according to Jäschke (Tibetan-English Dictionary) primarily means get, attain, but in expressions like saṅs rgyas thob pa become (lit. get) a Buddha. This latter seems clearly parallel to the use of -prāpta in these Kāśyapa Parivarta passages. Ordinarily a [compound] ending in -prāpta has as its prior member an abstract noun. Note however that some such prior members may be either abstract or con- crete; thus adbhuta may mean either surprising or sur- prise. Possibly the Kāśyapa Parivarta usage arose by analogy of such compounds. There are other cpds. of prāpta with a pre- ceding adj.; see s.v. niṣkāṅkṣa.
