Sātāgiri (सातागिरि) or Sātāgira is the name of a Yakṣa, according to the Suttanipāta and Udāna commentaries, as mentioned in an appendix of the 2nd century Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra chapter 36.—Sātāgira and Hemavata who were flying to an assembly of yakṣas were stopped in full flight and forced to land because, if they had continued on their route, they would have passed above the Buddha: cf. Commentary on the Suttanipāta, I, p. 221–223; Commentary on the Udāna, p. 64.

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.
