Utkūla (उत्कूल).—adj., high, rising; only with nikūla, low, [Pagĕ1-b+ 71] descending, and usually in [compound] utkūla-nikūla (compare Pali ukkūla-vikūla, interpreted as high and low, Aṅguttaranikāya (Pali) commentary ii.35.21), high and low, hence uneven: Mahāvyutpatti 2708 °lam, and 2709 nikūlam (the Tibetan definitions, śaṅ ṅam śoṅ 2708, ḥbar ḥbur ram mtho dman 2709, seem to refer confusedly to the pair of words together, and mean uneven, high- and-low); Lalitavistara 77.17 utkūlanikūlāś ca pṛthivīpradeśāḥ samāḥ samavasthitāḥ, and the high-and-low (uneven) places became even; 272.17 utkūla-nikūla-sama-kara- caraṇa-gatiḥ (of the Bodhisattva's gait),…making even places that were uneven; Mūla-Sarvāstivāda-Vinaya i.14.19 (as an ādīnava). The [compound] utkūla-nikūla occurs VS 30.14, where it is un- explained in commentary and not definable by context; utkūla occurs once or twice besides; nikūla is hardly recorded otherwise, and seems to be unknown in MIndic (Pali has vikūla instead, above).

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.
