yānīkata : (adj.) made a habit of; mastered.

Source: Sutta: The Pali Text Society's Pali-English Dictionary

Yānikata, (yāna+kata, with i for a in compn with kṛ, perhaps also in analogy with bahulī-kata) made a habit of, indulged in, acquired, mastered (cp. explanation Ps. I, 172: “yattha yattha ākaṅkhati tattha tattha vasippatto hoti balappatto etc. ”). The expression is to be com‹-› pared with yatânuyāgin & yātrā, similarly to which it is used only in one stock phrase. It comes very near yātrā in meaning “that which keeps one going, ” i.e. an acquired & thoroughly mastered habit, an “altera natura. ” It is not quite to the point when Dial II. 110 (following Childers?) translate as “to use as a vehicle. ” — Occurring with identical phraseology, viz. bahulīkata yāni-kata vatthu-kata anuṭṭhita paricita susamāraddha in application to the 4 iddhipādā at D. II, 103; A. IV, 309; S. V, 260; Miln. 140; to mettā at M. III, 97; S. I, 116; II, 264; IV, 200; V, 259; A. V, 342; J. II, 61; Miln. 198. explained at Ps. I, 172, cp. II. 122, 130. (Page 553)
