Sahita (सहित).—adj. (1) (= Pali id.) of speech, connected, coherent, sensible: Mahāvyutpatti 474 (°tā, of Buddha's speech); sahitaṃ ca bhūtaṃ (true) ca sadā prabhāṣate Saddharmapuṇḍarīka 373.4; sahitaṃ…sumadhuraṃ…abravīt Mahāvastu i.145.7 = 201.7 = ii.5.2 (Senart i.490 wrongly kindly, agreeable); Mūla-Sarvāstivāda-Vinaya ii.174.2 (read) tavāsahitam, mama sahitam; (2) of hair and eyebrows, in sahita-bhrū Lalitavistara 107.8 and sahita-keśa 12, both in list of anuvyañjana of the Buddha (Senart also reads sahita-keśa in Mahāvastu ii.44.10, but read with mss. ahasita-keśa, q.v.); Tibetan Lalitavistara both times mñam pa = even, which usually renders Sanskrit sama and has both mgs., alike, and level, flat, smooth; probably therefore with smooth (orig. connected, so close-growing; perhaps thick?) eyebrows and hair. These terms seem to be substitutions for, and roughly equivalent to, ślakṣṇa-bhrū and -keśa of other texts (Nos. 65 and 76 of my list of anuvyañjana), both of which are lacking in Lalitavistara. In Pali, Therīg. 254, sahita is used of a young woman's hair compared to a grove: kānanaṃ va sahitaṃ (commentary 210.7 ghanasaṃnivesaṃ uddham eva uṭṭhita-uddhadīghasākhaṃ upavanaṃ viya; in accordance with this Mrs. Rhys Davids renders dense).

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.
