Śauṇḍāpeya (शौण्डापेय).—also śuṇḍā°, Bhvr., lit. having liquor as beverage, drinker of liquor: (ye, to be supplied some- where in what precedes) tena samayena Dīpavatīye rāja- dhānīye manuṣyā abhūṣi śauṇḍāpeyā (Senart em. śuṇḍā°), te tena tālapattranirghoṣeṇa…paricāretsu (mss.) Mv i.194.16; compare Pali DN ii.172.3—5 ye…rājadhāniyā dhuttā ahesuṃ soṇḍa-pipāsā (comm. ii.617.11 surā soṇḍā, te yeva…pātukāmatāvasena pipāsā), te tāsaṃ tālapantī- naṃ…saddena paricāresuṃ. The same cliché occurs, more corruptly, Mv iii.227.3; 232.1; in both the word manuṣyā has somehow been transposed to between śauṇḍā (232.1 śuṇḍā) and peyā, while the verb abhūṣi is omitted; there can be no doubt, however, that the original text was substantially as above in all occurrences (except for the name of the city).

context information

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.
