Saṅghāṭī.—(EI 25), robe of a Buddhist monk. Note: saṅghāṭī is defined in the “Indian epigraphical glossary” as it can be found on ancient inscriptions commonly written in Sanskrit, Prakrit or Dravidian languages.Source: What is India: Inscriptions of the Vākāṭakas
Saṅghāṭī (सङ्घाटी) or Saṃghāṭī refers to a “long cloak”, which was commonly worn during the reign of the Vākāṭakas (mid-3rd century CE).—Ajaṇṭā paintings give us a clear idea of the costume and jewellery worn by men and women in Vidarbha in the age of the Vākāṭakas. [...] After his enlightenment, the Buddha used to wear three garments, (i) the antarāvāsaka (which Yuan Chwang calls nivasana) or lower garment which was tied at the waist with a girdle, (ii) the uttarāsaṅga, also called saṅkakṣikā which was worn like an uttarīya and (iii) the saṅghāṭī or long cloak. In the frescoes in the Caves XVI and XVII, the Buddha appears in some places to have worn an uttarāsaṅga10 and in others a saṅghāṭi.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
