Vikurvā (विकुर्वा).—(not in Pali; = °vaṇā), miracle: īdṛśyā… vikurvayā (v.l. vikrīḍayā) Saddharmapuṇḍarīka 446.10 (prose), of Avalokite- śvara; vikurvā- (but most mss. vikrīḍita-)-nirdeśaṃ 456.5 (prose), of the same; mahatyā bodhisattva-vikurvayā 472.4 (prose), of Samantabhadra; bahu tubhyaṃ vīrya- vikurvā (n. pl.) Lalitavistara 169.4 (verse); dhyāna-vikurvā id. 8 (verse; the first part of this line is certainly corrupt; most mss. omit the first words, which do not make sense here); jinānāṃ…akhilā vikurvā Gaṇḍavyūha 43.19 (verse); bodhisattva- [Page481-b+ 71] vikurvābhir 224.11 (prose); others, Śikṣāsamuccaya 327.20 (verse); 328.9 (verse), 15; 333.12; 345.12.

Vikurvā (विकुर्वा) or Vikurvī.—(which perhaps read, with two mss., but see § 11.3), miracle: bahu tubhyaṃ śīlavikurvī Lalitavistara 168.10 (verse; closely parallel with 169.4, 8, vikurvā; this is against understanding a voc. of *vikurvin, which is not plausible otherwise).

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.
