Tīrthya (तीर्थ्य) is a word similar to Tīrthika which refers to a “follower of a religion or a sect”, as mentioned in the Naiṣadha-carita 17.50, 103.—In 17.50 the Cārvāka addresses the adherents of the orthodox faith as Tīrthika. [...] Laṅkāvatārasūtra uses the words Tīrthya and Tīrthakara in a similar sense. As pointed out by the editors, the word Tīrthya (Tīrthakara) generally means “non-Buddhists”, who often turn out to be followers of the Brahmanical schools. The Buddhists thus use the words Tīrthika, Tīrthya and Tīrthakara to signify the adherents o f non-Buddhist, especially Brahmanical, schools of thought, as distinguished from the members of their own faith, the Svayūthyas, as they are called in the Bodhicaryāvatārapañjikā.

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.
