Tantrin.—(SITI; ASLV), a soldier; a trooper; a leader of the army; a temple priest; a weaver. It has been sup- posed that the Tamil words Kaikkoḻar and Aṭavi came to signify both a soldier and a weaver on the analogy of the word Tantrin used in both the senses. Cf. Tantrimār, members of the army corps; a class of persons who perform worship in temples; a priest. Note: tantrin is defined in the “Indian epigraphical glossary” as it can be found on ancient inscriptions commonly written in Sanskrit, Prakrit or Dravidian languages.

context information

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.
