Vārayati (वारयति) or Vāreti.—shares, hands out in turn (as gifts), distributes (? either ‘caus.’ to vṛ-ṇāti, like Sanskrit varayati, or perhaps denom. to Sanskrit vāra, turn?): (so) dāni brāhmaṇo modakāni krīṇiya brāhmaṇāṃ śabdāvitvā modakāni vāreti (v.l. vārayati) Mahāvastu ii.442.2 (prose). Senart ignores the word, which surely deserves a note, and seems to me puzzling; the Sanskrit caus. to vṛ, regularly varayati, not vār°, seems to mean only choose for oneself. To this probably MIndic caus. vārāpayati (§ 38.57), causes to distribute: tāttakā caiva vārāpeya (opt.) Kāśyapa Parivarta 158.3 (here text vārā- vāpeya); 159.6—7. [In Mūla-Sarvāstivāda-Vinaya iii.11.13; 15.19; and else- where, for (etad) vārayāmi, read dhār°, at the end of a vote in the saṃgha.]
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.
