Visāriṇī (विसारिणी).—(?) , in Divyāvadāna 562.23 (prose) sa tābhyāṃ yāvat trir apy ukto visāriṇī kṛṣṇā nivāryamāṇā (so text, em., mss. °ṇau, intending °ṇo, which read) nāvatiṣṭhate, he (the king), tho spoken to (in admonition) by those two (ministers) as many as three times, being held back…did not remain (in good conduct; he kept backsliding into evil ways). The words visāriṇī kṛṣṇā perhaps corruptly represent an abl. phrase, from his evil course (compare kṛṣṇa 1). As they stand, they could apparently only be a strange parentheti- cal clause; the corruption (? visāriṇī, or viśār° ?) was black (dark, evil). The Index to ed. renders kṛṣṇā by tongue of fire, which seems unacceptable; presumably it takes visā° as spreading; but even with the em. to nivāryamāṇā this hardly gives an intelligible result.

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.
