Yudhyamāna (युध्यमान) refers to “fighting”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.10 (“Boasting of Tāraka”).—Accordingly, as Tāraka-Asura fought with Kārttikeya: “[...] They were equally good adepts in fighting. Each wanted to kill the other. They utilised all their power. With the edges of spears they hit each other. They hit or cut each other’s head, neck, thighs, knees, hips, heart, chest and the back. They continued the fight (yudhyamāna) swaggering and vaunting with heroic words. They were experts in different tactics of warfare. They were equally strong. They desired to kill each other. [...]”.

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.
