Svādharṣaka (स्वाधर्षक).—(sv-ādharṣa-ka), adj. [bahuvrīhi], subject to easy attack: kulaṃ bahustrīkaṃ alpapuruṣaṃ °kaṃ bhavati, supra- dharṣakaṃ (q.v.)…Bhikṣuṇī-karmavācanā 4a.3. Antonyms of Sanskrit dur- ādharṣa, duṣpradharṣa; the nouns ādharṣa, pradharṣa are otherwise unrecorded. The corresponding Pali, Vin. ii. 256.17, has suppadhaṃsiya, but no equivalent of svā- dharṣaka.
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.
