Saṅkitti, (f.) (perhaps saṃ+kitti) derivation & meaning very doubtful; Bdhgh’s explanation at PugA 231 is not to be taken as reliable, viz. “saṅkittetvā katabhattesu hoti. dubbhikkha-samaye kira acela-kāsāvakā acelakānaṃ atthāya tato tato taṇḍul’ādīni samādapetvā bhattaṃ pacanti, ukkaṭṭhâcelako tato na paṭigaṇhāti. ” D. I, 166 (translation Dial. I. 229 “he will not accept food collected, i.e. by the faithful in time of drought”; Neumann “not from the dirty”; Franke “nichts von Mahlzeiten, für die die Mittel durch Aufruf beschafft sind”?); M. I, 77; A. II, 206; Pug. 55. It may be something like “convocation. ” (Page 663)
