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).]
