Ucchada (उच्छद).—(°-) (1) (= Pali ussada; = ucchādana, q.v.), shampooing, rubbing down: Kāśyapa Parivarta 152.2 ucchada-snapana- parimardana-bhedana-vikiraṇa-vidhvaṃsana-dharmaḥ (of the body); (2) in Śikṣāsamuccaya 208.11 -sāntarocchada-paṭikobhaya- kṛtopadhāneṣu paryaṅkeṣu śayitvā; Bendall and Rouse app. understand ucchada as some kind of cloth (compare uccha- daka); but the preceding sāntara, which certainly goes closely with what follows it, is hard to interpret on that theory, and suggests em. to sāntarottara (q.v.), a [compound] known to Pali; it might mean here…having cushions made on both sides with woolen cloths inside and outside; (3) in Avadāna-śataka i.354.10 Speyer's em. is certainly wrong. The ms. is quoted as prāptaucchadakāyaś ca; certainly uc- chada = utsada (1), Pali ussada, elevation on the 7 parts of the body which show this feature in a mahāpuruṣa; Tibetan mtho ba confirms this. Acc. to Speyer, Tibetan has mdun, fore-part, before that word; but surely Tibetan read, or intended, bdun, seven, and we must read sapto- for prāptau-; the [compound] means with a body possessing the 7 high places or protuberances (see under utsada (1), and compare Bodhisattvabhūmi 375.20 saptotsadakāyaḥ).—Add to (2): my sugge- stion on Śikṣāsamuccaya 208.11 is made dubious by sottarocchada- paṭa (ms.; ed. em. sottaracch°), adj., MPS 34.68 and 69.

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.
