Praśaṭhatā (प्रशठता) or Praśaṭha.—(?) , uncertain; in Kāśyapa Parivarta 154.1 (prose) samyakprahāṇa-(see prahāṇa)-prasaṭhā (so divide) ri-(lacuna; Tibetan rdzu ḥphrul = ṛddhi-); Tibetan renders prasaṭhā by ḥgro ba, here doubtless entrance into…; the syllable ṭhā seems corrupt but I think of no attractive em. Dubious also is praśaṭhatā Mahāvyutpatti 2101 (both edd., no v.l.), which looks as if it meant trickery, deceitfulness (so [Boehtlingk] 7.362; compare AMg. pasaḍha, rogue, trickster); but Tibetan renders rnal du (into tranquillity) (ḥ)bab (entrance into) or ḥdug pa (state of), which suggests a form of śam (compare śamatha); Chin. according to Ting, elimination of differences among things, resulting in tranquillity (the last phrase not in Chin. here but cited from a parallel passage).
