Sarvatraka (सर्वत्रक).—(?) , adj. (compare Pali sabbatthaka, universal, in all places, not in the [Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit] meaning in Jātaka (Pali) i.172.1 or Dāṭh. 5.57; two other refs. in [Pali Text Society’s Pali-English Dictionary] not found, app. erroneous), capable of going everywhere: vimānāni °kāni Mahāvastu ii.177.15 (prose); no v.l., but the meaning is suspiciously like that of Sanskrit sarvatra-ga, which perhaps read, if the word really modifies the preceding vimānāni. However, the following words are sarvakālikāni puṣpaphalāni, and the position of our word suggests a corruption for Sanskrit sarvartukāni, of all seasons; equivalents of this word (see sarvārtuka, sarvotuka) precede sarvakālika, q.v., in Mahāvastu ii.97.4; iii.69.12, 13.

context information

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.
