Uttarika (उत्तरिक).—(Pali, see below), in Śikṣāsamuccaya 332.1 (verse) ăjīvika-dharma-carāṇāṃ uttarikāṇa anuttarikāṇāṃ, of Ājīvika- sectarians, superior and not superior(?); according to Bendall and Rouse, Transl., those who have or those who have not the higher aim, which is hardly illuminating. See Bendall's note in Text p. 414 for report of a Chin. interpretation, for which I find no basis in Indic. In Pali uttarika is reported only Nett. 50.10 °kānaṃ phalānaṃ pattiyā; obviously superior or the like. Pali has no anuttarika.

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.
