Ṣaḍvārgika (षड्वार्गिक).—m. pl. (= prec. two and Pali chab-baggiya), members of the group of six (monks), see Childers and [Pali Text Society’s Pali-English Dictionary]: Mahāvyutpatti 9255 = Tibetan drug sde. Their names are given 9471—6: Nanda, Upananda, Punarvasu, Chanda, Aśvaka, Udāyin; the Pali list agrees only in part. Nanda and Upananda also belong to this group in Divyāvadāna; see s.v. Nandopananda. In Pali they seem to be represented as followers of the Buddha, though very imperfect ones, often transgressing rules of propriety. In [Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit], at least in Divyāvadāna, they seem to be heretics from the Buddhist standpoint.

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.
