1) Saṃgaha (संगह) in the Prakrit language is related to the Sanskrit word: Saṃgrah.
2) Saṃgaha (संगह) also relates to the Sanskrit word: Saṃgraha.
Prakrit is an ancient language closely associated with both Pali and Sanskrit. Jain literature is often composed in this language or sub-dialects, such as the Agamas and their commentaries which are written in Ardhamagadhi and Maharashtri Prakrit. The earliest extant texts can be dated to as early as the 4th century BCE although core portions might be older.
