Vikṣāntam (विक्षान्तम्).—[ (as if ppp. to vi-kṣamati = Sanskrit kṣamati), pardoned: in Lalitavistara 168.14 (verse) all mss. tac ca vi°, Lefm. em. ti (= te) kṣ°, and that was forgiven by you; the em. is surely right, because (1) no vi-kṣam- in this sense is recorded anywhere; (2) in 18 below taṃ ca ti kṣāntaṃ is read in all mss. in a precisely similar phrase; (3) Tibetan also supports the em., khyod kyis (by you) de dag (those things) bzod (pardoned).]
Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family. 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.
