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)
Pali is the language of the Tipiṭaka, which is the sacred canon of Theravāda Buddhism and contains much of the Buddha’s speech. Closeley related to Sanskrit, both languages are used interchangeably between religions.
