Mahayana (major branch of Buddhism)
Satyaka (सत्यक) or Satyaka-Nirgranthīputra is the name of a person of olden times subdued by the Buddha mentioned in order to demonstrate the fearlessness of the Buddha according to the 2nd century Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra chapter XL.1.4. Accordingly, “there were formidable people, such as these scholars who were absorbed in the height of pride. Intoxicated by their false wisdom, they presented themselves as unique in the world and unrivalled. Knowing their own books deeply, they refuted others’ books and criticized all the systems with wicked words. They were like mad elephants caring for nothing. Among these madmen, we cite: Sa-tchö-tche Ni-k’ien (Satyaka Nirgranthīputra), etc.”.
For Satyaka Nirgranthīputra, see above, p. 46–47F and notes: below, k. 26, p. 251c10; k. 90, p. 699a9.(Source): Wisdom Library: Maha Prajnaparamita Sastra

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family. 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.
