Udraṅga.—(IE 8-3; 8-5; EI 22; CII 3, 4; HRS), explained as ‘the fixed tax’, ‘the land tax’, ‘the principal tax’ or ‘the tax on the permanent tenants’; generally mentioned along with uparikara, i. e. minor taxes or the tax on temporary tenants; same as kḻpta. Udraṅga may have been paid in grains at least in soem regions since the Audraṅgika (collector of ud- raṅga) is sometimes separately mentioned together with the Hiraṇyasāmudāyika (collector of revenue in cash). In one case, the land is said to have been granted after making it udraṅga, i. e. s-odraṅga. See s-odraṅga (IA 10), draṅga, uttāra. Cf. mah-odraṅga in pravartita-mahodraṅga-ādi-dāna-vyasana-anupajāta- santoṣa (Ep. Ind., Vol. XXII, p. 118, text line 40). Note: udraṅga is defined in the “Indian epigraphical glossary” as it can be found on ancient inscriptions commonly written in Sanskrit, Prakrit or Dravidian languages.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.

[Sanskrit to German]
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.
