Ayurveda (science of life)

Source: Vagbhata’s Ashtanga Hridaya Samhita (first 5 chapters)

Ṣaḍ (षड्) refers to an attribute of rasa and is mentioned in verse 1.15 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Ṣaḍ has been regarded by the scholiasts as an attribute of rasa (14c), in obvious analogy to sapta and dhātu (13bc), though an enjambment like this is none too frequent in Sanskrit. In Tibetan, it has been connected with dravya, which shows that the translators read ṣaḍdravyam (in one word) rather than sad dravyam (in two words), taking the phrase for a dvigu.

Tell me those of the Sādhaka’. The Lord spoke: ‘[...] This is the auspicious Raudra-vrata: imposing with a chignon of matted locks, marked by a trident and khaṭvāṅga, equipped with a clean half skull, awe-inspiring with a third eye, clothed in the skin of a tiger, peaceful. For one firm [in this observance, the highest siddhi will arise in six months] (ṣaṣ-māsaṣaḍbhirmmāsaiḥ); middling [powers] in four months; the lowest [powers] will arise in three months. [...]’”.

2) Ṣaṣ (षष्) or Ṣaḍdiś refers to “six (directions)”, according to the Vṛtti on the Īśvarapratyabhijñākārikā 1.5.6, 20-21.—Accordingly, “Moreover, [the existence of] the external object is refuted by a means of [valid] knowledge if it has parts, because of [the necessity then] of attributing to it contradictory properties, etc.; [and it is contradicted] in many ways if it has no parts, because [then] it must be in contact with the six directions (diś-ṣaṭka-yoga-ādi), etc.”.

3) Ṣaṣ (षष्) or Ṣaḍdhātu refers to the “(theory of the) six elements”, according to Utpaladeva’s Vivṛti on Īśvarapratyabhijñākārikā 1.5.6.—Accordingly, “[...] For it is not [universally acknowledged that] no [perception] at all can be accounted for without speculating about the [imperceptible] sense organs; thus some propound the theory of the six elements (ṣaḍdhātu) while not taking the sense organs into account in any way, [and] others defend the theory of the two [sorts of combinations of four elements—namely, the sort that produces consciousness and the one that does not—without taking imperceptible sense organs into account either]. [...]”

[...] The netra [aṅgamantra], [which is] most powerful and destroys all faults, begins with Bhairava [j], and an oṃ [and] situated with a head always in motion [y].

Mahayana (major branch of Buddhism)

Source: Wisdom Library: Maha Prajnaparamita Sastra

Ṣaṣ (षष्) or Ṣaḍindriya refers to the “six sense organs”, according to Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra (chapter 19).—Accordingly, “When generosity is practiced, the six sense organs (ṣaṣ-indriya) are purified (prasanna) and a good mind of desire (kuśalakāmacitta) is produced. When this is produced, the inner mind (adhyātmacitta) is purified. When the virtues (guṇa) of the fruit of retribution (vipākaphala) are considered, a mind of faith (śraddhacitta) is produced. The body (kāya) and the mind (citta) become softened (mṛdutaruṇa), joy (ānanda) arises. Joy having arisen, a ‘single-mindedness’ (ekacitta) is obtained, thanks to which real wisdom (bhūtaprajñā) is produced: these are the good dharmas that are acquired”.

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.
