Pratiprasava (प्रतिप्रसव).—

1) (As opposed to anuprasava) tracing causes back to the origin as -a pot, a lump of mud, mud, clay, Pātañjala Yogadarśana.

2) Negation of (or exception to) a negation. The force of a प्रतिप्रसव (pratiprasava) is positive, limiting as it does the scope of a प्रतिषेध (pratiṣedha) or negation. Hence it is just the opposite of परिसंख्या (parisaṃkhyā) whose force is negative or exclusive since it limits the scope of a positive statement. प्रतिप्रसवोऽयं न परिसंख्या (pratiprasavo'yaṃ na parisaṃkhyā) ŚB. on MS.1.7.45.

Derivable forms: pratiprasavaḥ (प्रतिप्रसवः).

Pratiprasava is a Sanskrit compound consisting of the terms prati and prasava (प्रसव).
