Samīhati (समीहति).—(?) (in Pali may, it seems, mean moves, intrans.: ākāsamhi °ti Vv.5.1, commentary 35.15 ff…carati gacchati), ppp. (vāyu-)samīhita, stirred (by the wind), based on act. (caus.?) meaning (°hayati?): °tā kisalayās Lalitavistara 326.4 (verse). The meaning is certain, the reading less so; some mss. °samīritā; but the occurrence of māra-samīritāḥ in the prec. line suggests that this v.l. may have been only a lect. fac.; most and the best mss. are reported with °samīhitā.
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.
