Sahavratā (सहव्रता).—(corresponds to Pali sahavyatā; the origin of the latter is obscure, but the [Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit] form is probably secondary to it, with hyper-Sanskrit adaptation to vrata, compare Senart n. on Mahāvastu iii.223.5, p. 493), association, state of being connected with: regularly dat. -sahavratāyai, Lalitavistara (also °tāye in Mahāvastu), in cpds., ākiṃcanyāyatana- (see this) Lalitavistara 238.16 = Mahāvastu ii.118.3 (in Mahāvastu corruptly āśaṅkitavya-, q.v.); naiva- saṃjñānāsañjñāyatana- (see this) Lalitavistara 243.17; 403.11 = Mahāvastu ii.119.10; iii.322.12; brahmaloka- (and others) Mahāvastu iii.223.5, 6, 9, 11; compare Pali Dīghanikāya (Pali) ii.250.20 brahmaloka- sahavyatāya, same passage as Mahāvastu iii.223.5.
