Prativaśa (प्रतिवश).—adj., obedient (to), subject to the will (of), with gen.: mama °śāś ca syuḥ Udānavarga xiii.4, in a verse = Pali Dhammapada (Pali) 74 mam’ evātivasā assu. The Pali ativasa is isolated, strange, and difficult (see Critical Pali Dictionary), and [Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit] prativaśa seems a more natural and comprehensible form, tho also un- paralleled as far as I know.
