Also Mahāvastu ii.123.16 (prose) sa khalv ahaṃ…tathādarśanasamāno, I being of this opinion (as just stated in prec.).

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.
