General definition (in Hinduism)Source: Apam Napat: Indian Mythology
Sampati was a great bird, the son of the sage Kashyapa and Unmati, one of the hundred daughters of Daksha. He was very fond of his half-brother Jatayu (who was also a bird). Once when they were young, both the bird-brothers had attempted to fly up to the sun. Jatayu flew higher and closer and almost burnt his wings. Seeing his younger brother in distress, Sampati flew higher than him and shielded him from the burning rays of the sun with his own wings. In this process, his wings burnt away and he was not able to fly again. His brother Jatayu succeeded him as the King of birds.Source: WikiPedia: Hinduism
Sampāti (सम्पाति): Sampati was one of the two sons of Aruna, elder brother of Jatayu. Sampati lost his wings when he was a child.

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.
