Tatprathamatas (तत्प्रथमतस्).—adv. (compare AMg. tappaḍhamayā, priority; if such a [compound] occurs in Pali I have not found it in [Pali Text Society’s Pali-English Dictionary] or Childers), for the first time: °taḥ śalākāṃ gṛhṇatāṃ Divyāvadāna 44.28; °to Buddhadarśanam 47.6; tadā mama gṛhe tatp° piṇḍapātaḥ paribhoktavya iti 188.24; ādikarmikaṃ tatprathamakarmikam (see prec.) tatpra- thamata evam avavadati Bodhisattvabhūmi 395.2. In several of these, notably the last, tat could certainly not be interpreted as an independent word.

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.
