Yaśodeva (यशोदेव).—(1) name of a disciple of Buddha: Lalitavistara 1.8 (no v.l.). Evidently corresponds to Pali Yasa (Thera, 1 in Malalasekara (Dictionary of Pali Proper Names); compare Yaśas 1, Yaśoda), of Vin. i.15.1 ff., as is shown by the next four names in Lalitavistara, Vimala, Subāhu, Pūrṇa, and Gavāṃpati, who correspond to the four friends of Yasa named in Vin. i.18.36 f., Vimala, Subāhu, Puṇṇaji, and Gavampati. So also Sukhāvatīvyūha 2.3, followed by Vimala, Subāhu, and Pūrṇa (Maitrāyaṇīputra). (2) name of an upāsaka or lay-disciple, surely not the same as 1: Gaṇḍavyūha 51.10.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!).
