Śākī (शाकी).—name of a brahman woman, app. an ascetic, who entertained the Bodhisattva: atha bodhisattvo yenaiva Śākyā brāhmaṇyā āśramas tenopasaṃkrāmat; sā bodhi- sattvaṃ vāsena bhaktena copanimantrayate sma Lalitavistara 238.5 (prose); see Weller 29. But Tibetan lacks the name: bram ze rigs ldan (see below) kyi gnas, the dwelling of a person of brahman family(?). Note that immediately after this, line 7, the Bodhisattva visits and is entertained by another brahman woman, named Padmā (this time so named in Tibetan); the two statements are closely parallel. The Tibetan rigs ldan could mean noble, or represent a Sanskrit n. pr. (proper name) such as Kulikā.Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: Monier-Williams Sanskrit-English Dictionary
