Vyaskandaka (व्यस्कन्दक).—[, see vyā°.]

--- OR ---

Vyāskandaka (व्यास्कन्दक).—(°-), a kind of samāpatti, q.v.: Mahāvyutpatti 1497 (Mironov vya°). Tibetan renders by snrel zhi, which usually = vyatyasta (q.v. 2), and Mahāvyutpatti ed. suggests reading so; compare vyutkrāntaka. It would seem to be, like the latter, a manner of skipping from one trance-state to a non-adjoining one. But Chin. has the equivalent of nāsaṃjñāyatana, which as Ting says seems ‘an abbre- viation’ (the last part) of naivasaṃjñānāsaṃjñāyatana.

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.
