Prativāta (प्रतिवात):—In the Vīramitrodaya (Saṃskāra, p. 461), ‘prativāte’ is explained as ‘that place to which wind reaches from the place where the Teacher is sitting’.
In Madanapārijāta (p. 107), the following notes are added:—‘prativāta’ is ‘wind that blows from the teacher towards the pupil’; at such a place the Student shall not sit; as there is the danger of the fire of the teacher’s anger issuing forth that way.
Dharmashastra (धर्मशास्त्र, dharmaśāstra) contains the instructions (shastra) regarding religious conduct of livelihood (dharma), ceremonies, jurisprudence (study of law) and more. It is categorized as smriti, an important and authoritative selection of books dealing with the Hindu lifestyle.

[Sanskrit to German]
Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
