Raṇaṃjaha (रणंजह).—also raṇajaha m.c., (1) adj. (compare raṇa; = Pali raṇaṃjaha), primarily abandoning impurities (so Tibetan usually, ñon moṅs (pa) spoṅ ba, or spaṅs ba), but in some contexts, both in Pali and [Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit], apparently understood as victorious in battle (Sanskrit raṇa), so that Trenckner (see [Pali Text Society’s Pali-English Dictionary]. s.v.) wished to em. to raṇaṃjaya; once, at least, Tibetan (on Lalitavistara 304.19) renders thus, gyul las rgyal; Speyer on Avadāna-śataka ii.131 note 3 suggests pacifier, peace- maker, but this is clearly inappropriate to the contexts; nor is Seidenstücker's dem Kampfgewühl entronnen (see [Pali Text Society’s Pali-English Dictionary] s.v.) any more plausible; the orig. and primary meaning seems certain in Lalitavistara 358.2 (verse); 361.20 (verse, here raṇajaha, m.c.); 423.22; context tempts to assuming contamination with raṇa, battle (but it is hard for me to guess how, in that case, -jaha was interpreted) in Lalitavistara 304.19 (verse; on Tibetan see above) śūru (nom.) balavāṃś ca raṇaṃjahaś ca; Lalitavistara 437.21 (verse) śūro mahā-raṇaṃjahaḥ; and possibly Lalitavistara 116.12 (verse) jātī-jarā-maraṇa-kleśa- raṇaṃjahasya; in all these epithet of Buddha, or the Bodhi- sattva; (2) name of a former Buddha: Sukhāvatīvyūha 5.18; (3) name of a samādhi: Mahāvyutpatti 535 (Tibetan as usual); Śatasāhasrikā-prajñāpāramitā 1417.10.
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.
