Sthānin (स्थानिन्) refers to the original form in grammar for which something else is substituted (and called ādeśa), and is mentioned in the Naiṣadha-carita 5.127.—(“bhaṇa phaṇibhavaśāstraṃ tātaṅaḥ sthāninau kau”).—In this example tu and hi are the sthānin or original forms, and tātaṅū is the ādeśa or substitute. For the rule in question see footnote to translation.

In verse 10.135, the grammatical meaning [of sthānin] is implied by pun, and the word is used in the sense of “original” (“āsutrāmamapāsanānmakhabhujām”: “why did he retain his original evil nature?”) (preceded by “svaṃ naiṣadhādeśamaho vidhāya”). Cf. Anargharāghava (Act 4).
