Saṃjana (संजन).—(-saṃjana) (m.? or nt.? = Sanskrit and Pali saṃjanana), producing, production: Mahāvastu iii.77.10 (verse) romaharṣaṇa- saṃjanaṃ ([bahuvrīhi]), which produces horripilation; v.l. °saṃ- jananaṃ, but meter proves °saṃjanaṃ correct; Divyāvadāna 467.3 (prose) avipratisāra-saṃjanārthaṃ, to produce non- regret, but in same phrase Divyāvadāna 78.7 °saṃjananārthaṃ, which probably read in 467.3 (haplography), with Mūla-Sarvāstivāda-Vinaya i.76.2 (same text).

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.
