Saṃnidhānin (संनिधानिन्).—(?) , adj. (Sanskrit °na plus -in), in Divyāvadāna 556.4 according to Index social (which is not clear to me), according to [Boehtlingk] 7.380 ‘etwa Güter sammelnd’ (compare saṃnidhi), perhaps rightly: (na mama pratirūpaṃ syād yad ahaṃ…) gṛhī agāram adhyāvaseyaṃ °dhānī kālaparibhogena vā kāmān (sc. in heaven, as had been suggested to him) paribhuñjīyaṃ. In accordance with the usual meaning of Sanskrit saṃnidhāna, perhaps staying in the neighborhood, living in the same vicinity (as at present)?

context information

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family. 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.
