Samarjana (समर्जन).—(?) according to Lüders 45, ‘wohl Zusammen- biegen, Krümmen, von sam-ṛj’; he then suggests that Pali saṃmiñjeti (our saṃmiñjayati, q.v.) stands for *sam-riñjayati for sam-ṛñjayati, which I think unlikely: in fragment 44 V 1 (p. 143) of Kalpanāmaṇḍitikā, Lüders, Kl. Sanskrit Texte 2: ārabhate śarīraṃ saṃtāpana (lacuna) …aṅgāvapāṭana-samarjana-vṛ(tt)…(lacuna). The meaning seems to be quite different from that of saṃmiñjana, °jita, qq.v.; here we seem to have to do with a form of (self-?)torture.

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.
