Ṛtupariṇāma (ऋतुपरिणाम).—and ṛtu-vipariṇāma: compare Pali utu-pariṇāma, change of season, as a source of disease, e.g. Aṅguttaranikāya (Pali) ii.87.30—31 (vedayitāni…) utupariṇāma-jāni (commentary iii.114.19 = utupariṇāmato atisīta-atiuṇha-ututo jātāni); ṛtupariṇāmāye, Mahāvastu ii.15.6 (Senart wrongly), or ṛtuvipari° ii.424.(3—)4, perhaps adj. subject to change of season; or, probably reading °nāma-tāye, because of change of season?; in vipā- canīye grahaṇīye samanvāgatā nāpy atiśītāye nāpy atiuṣṇāye (424.3 na cāti° both times) ṛtu- (424.4 ṛtu-vi-) pariṇāmāye. A like passage Mahāvastu i.211.7 reads, instead of ṛtu(vi)pari°, in the mss. samāye cintamatāye (v.l. vinta°), which is obscure; Senart em. sammāpariṇāmāye, but this seems violent; samāye seems sound, as it occurs just before. Senart understands this as causing good digestion, and infers that ṛtu-pari° means the same. He does not mention ii.424.3—4, which reads vipariṇāma; this, unlike pariṇāma, seems never to be used in Sanskrit, Pali or Prakrit in the sense of digestion; and the established Pali [compound] utu-pariṇāma certainly goes against Senart's view. The only question is, can ṛtupariṇāmāye, fem., be an adj. going with grahaṇīye, or should we take it as a noun? In the latter case an em. to °matāye seems probable.

context information

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.
