Sasita (ससित) refers to “sugared”, mentioned in verse 3.33 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Accordingly, “[...] Taking at night moonbeams as food, one shall drink, sugared [viz., sasita] buffalo’s milk (that is) cooled by the moon and stars. In groves in which the hot-rayed one is darkened by cloud-grazing huge Sal trees and Palmyra palms, [...]”.
Note: Sasita (“sugared”) has been interchanged with candranakṣatraśītala and translated by bsil-mo (“cold”), which points to a variant saśīta in the basic text. Accordingly, śītala (which usually signifies “cool”) has been given the rare sense of dkar-ba (“white”); cf. śītalacchada (“white leaf”) or (“white-leaved”) MW p. 1078.—dka-ba in P is a carver’s error.
