Pratipadā (प्रतिपदा).—= prec. (as in Pali paṭipadā), but very much rarer; hence, where saṃdhi is ambiguous, I have assigned the doubtful forms to pratipad: dharmadeśanā- pratipadā-saṃpannaṃ…śāstāraṃ Mahāvastu iii.201.9, perfected in the practice of preaching the law; ye sarvatragāminīprati- padāṃ tatratatragāminīpratipadāṃ…prajānanti 320.14, in list of the ten bala of a Tathāgata, see pratipad, towards the end; nirvāṇagāminī °dā 201.15, 18; madhyamā °dā 331.8, 10, between the two extremes, introducing Four Noble Truths; in 12 the word mārga is omitted, text reading yad idam āryāṣṭāṅgikā, sayyathīdaṃ samyag- dṛṣṭiḥ etc.; but one ms. reads āryāṣṭāṅgikaḥ, implying mārgaḥ as in all known parallels, and the adaptation to the fem. gender of pratipad in one ms. (followed by Senart) is probably an error, resulting from the accidental omission of the noun mārgaḥ; below the usual formulas are found, duḥkhanirodhagāminī pratipad-āryasatyaṃ 331.18; tatra katamā (mss. °mo!) duḥkhanirodhagāminī pratipad āryasatyā (! so mss. and Senart), eṣaiva āryāṣṭāṅgo mārgo, etc., 332.9-10.
