नारदे mLs

Today we will look at the form नारदे mLs from श्रीमद्भागवतम् 1.7.1.

शौनक उवाच
निर्गते नारदे सूत भगवान्बादरायणः । श्रुतवांस्तदभिप्रेतं ततः किमकरोद्विभुः ।। १-७-१ ।।
सूत उवाच
ब्रह्मनद्यां सरस्वत्यामाश्रमः पश्चिमे तटे । शम्याप्रास इति प्रोक्त ऋषीणां सत्रवर्धनः ।। १-७-२ ।।
तस्मिन्स्व आश्रमे व्यासो बदरीषण्डमण्डिते । आसीनोऽप उपस्पृश्य प्रणिदध्यौ मनः स्वयम् ।। १-७-३ ।।

श्रीधर-स्वामि-टीका
तस्य नारदस्याभिप्रेतं श्रुतवान्सन् ।। १ ।। ब्रह्मनद्यां ब्रह्मदैवत्यायां ब्राह्मणैराश्रितायां च । सत्रं कर्म वर्धयतीति तथा ।। २ ।। बदरीणां षण्डेन समूहेन मण्डिते । मनः प्रणिदध्यौ स्थिरीचकार । ‘समाधिनाऽनुस्मर तद्विचेष्टितम्’ इति नारदोपदिष्टं ध्यानं कृतवानित्यर्थः ।। ३ ।।

Gita Press translation – Śaunaka said: On the departure of Nārada, what did the divine and all-powerful Vyāsa do, after hearing that which was in the mind of the celestial sage? (1) Sūta replied: On the western bank of the Saraswatī river, presided over by Brahmā, there is a hermitage called Śamyāprāsa, which promotes the sacrificial activities of the sages (2). In that hermitage, which was Vyāsa’s own abode and was surrounded by a grove of jujube trees, the sage Vyāsa sat down and, after sipping a little water, collected his mind by self-effort (3).

नारदे is सप्तमी-एकवचनम् of the पुंलिङ्ग-प्रातिपदिकम् ‘नारद’।

(1) नारद + ङि । By 4-1-2 स्वौजसमौट्छष्टाभ्याम्भिस्ङेभ्याम्भ्यस्ङसिभ्याम्भ्यस्ङसोसाम्ङ्योस्सुप्‌। As per the सूत्रम् 2-3-37 यस्य च भावेन भावलक्षणम्‌ – A seventh case affix (‘ङि’, ‘ओस्’, ‘सुप्’) is used following a प्रातिपदिकम् (nominal stem) which denotes the one (agent/object) whose action (the timing of which is known) gives an indication of (the timing of) another action.
Note: A सप्तमी used in this manner is called भावलक्षण-सप्तमी or भाव-सप्तमी or सत्-सप्तमी or सति-सप्तमी। In English it is called Locative Absolute.
Note: The action (लक्षण-क्रिया) in the absolute clause is generally expressed by using a participle ending in a कृत् affix. This participle (here ‘निर्गत’) – being in grammatical agreement with the प्रातिपदिकम् (here ‘नारद’) which denotes the agent of the action – also takes the seventh case affix.

(2) नारद + इ । अनुबन्ध-लोपः by 1-3-8 लशक्वतद्धिते and 1-3-9 तस्य लोपः।

(3) नारदे । By 6-1-87 आद्‌गुणः

Questions:

1. Where has the सूत्रम् 2-3-37 यस्य च भावेन भावलक्षणम्‌ been used in verses 35-40 of Chapter One of the गीता?

2. Which सूत्रम् prescribes the substitution ‘ई’ in the form आसीनः (प्रातिपदिकम् ‘आसीन’, पुंलिङ्गे प्रथमा-एकवचनम्)?

3. Can you spot the affix ‘क्तवतुँ’ in the verses?

4. In which word in the verses has the सूत्रम् 3-2-180 विप्रसम्भ्यो ड्वसंज्ञायाम् been used?

5. The seventh case affix in the form तटे (and the corresponding adjective पश्चिमे) used in the verse is prescribed by the सूत्रम् 2-3-36 सप्तम्यधिकरणे च because ‘तट’ has the designation अधिकरणम् as per the सूत्रम् 1-4-45 आधारोऽधिकरणम्। आधारः is of three kinds (i) औपश्लेषिक: involving contact or proximity (ii) वैषयिक: involving a subject matter (iii) अभिव्यापक: involving pervasion. Which one (of these three) is it here?

6. How would you say this in Sanskrit?
“On Rāvaṇa having been killed, the monkeys rejoiced.” Use the verbal root √हृष् (हृषँ तुष्टौ ४. १४२) for ‘to rejoice.’

Easy questions:

1. In the verses can you spot a प्रातिपदिकम् which is always used in the plural?

2. Where has the सूत्रम् 3-1-79 तनादिकृञ्भ्य उः been used in the verses?

तूर्येषु mLp

गोपान्वयस्यानाकृष्य तैः संसृज्य विजह्रतुः । वाद्यमानेषु तूर्येषु वल्गन्तौ रुतनूपुरौ ।। १०-४४-२९ ।।
जनाः प्रजहृषुः सर्वे कर्मणा रामकृष्णयोः । ऋते कंसं विप्रमुख्याः साधवः साधु साध्विति ।। १०-४४-३० ।।

श्रीधर-स्वामि-टीका
वल्गन्तौ नृत्यादि कुर्वन्तौ ।। २९ ।। साधु साधु इति वदन्तः ।। ३० ।।

Gita Press translation – Drawing near them Their cowherd mates and closing with them, the two Brothers sported (in the arena), while the trumpets were being sounded, dancing (at intervals) with Their anklets jingling (29). With the exception of Kaṁsa all the people (present there) exceedingly rejoiced over the achievement of Balarāma and Śrī Kṛṣṇa. And pious men, including the foremost of the Brāhmaṇas, exclaimed, “Well done! bravo!!” (30)

तूर्येषु is सप्तमी-बहुवचनम् of the पुंल्लिङ्ग/नपुंसकलिङ्ग-प्रातिपदिकम् ‘तूर्य’।

(1) तूर्य + सुप् । By 4-1-2 स्वौजसमौट्छष्टाभ्याम्भिस्ङेभ्याम्भ्यस्ङसिभ्याम्भ्यस्ङसोसाम्ङ्योस्सुप्‌। As per the सूत्रम् 2-3-37 यस्य च भावेन भावलक्षणम्‌ – A seventh case affix (‘ङि’, ‘ओस्’, ‘सुप्’) is used following a प्रातिपदिकम् (nominal stem) which denotes the one (agent/object) whose action (the timing of which is known) gives an indication of (the timing of) another action.

Note: The action (लक्षण-क्रिया) in the absolute clause is generally expressed by using a participle ending in a कृत् affix. This participle (here ‘वाद्यमान’) – being in grammatical agreement with the प्रातिपदिकम् (here the object ‘तूर्य’) which denotes the agent/object of the action – also takes the seventh case affix.

(2) तूर्य + सु । अनुबन्ध-लोपः by 1-3-3 हलन्त्यम् and 1-3-9 तस्य लोपः।

(3) तूर्ये + सु । By 7-3-103 बहुवचने झल्येत् – the ending letter ‘अ’ of a अङ्गम् changes to ‘ए’ when followed by a plural सुँप् affix beginning with a झल् letter.

(4) तूर्येषु । By 8-3-59 आदेशप्रत्यययोः – The letter ‘स्’ is replaced by the cerebral ‘ष्’ when preceded either by a letter of the इण्-प्रत्याहार: or a letter of the क-वर्ग: (‘क्’, ‘ख्’, ‘ग्’, ‘घ्’, ‘ङ्’)। This substitution only takes place if the ‘स्’ is an आदेश: (substitute) or part of a प्रत्यय: (affix.)

दूरे nLs

Today we will look at the form दूरे nLs from श्रीमद्भागवतम् 10.47.34.

यत्त्वहं भवतीनां वै दूरे वर्ते प्रियो दृशाम् । मनसः सन्निकर्षार्थं मदनुध्यानकाम्यया ।। १०-४७-३४ ।।
यथा दूरचरे प्रेष्ठे मन आविश्य वर्तते । स्त्रीणां च न तथा चेतः सन्निकृष्टेऽक्षिगोचरे ।। १०-४७-३५ ।।
मय्यावेश्य मनः कृत्स्नं विमुक्ताशेषवृत्ति यत् । अनुस्मरन्त्यो मां नित्यमचिरान्मामुपैष्यथ ।। १०-४७-३६ ।।

श्रीधर-स्वामि-टीका
ननु किमन्यानिवास्मानात्मविद्यया प्रलोभयसि, वयं तु सर्वसुन्दरसकलगुणगणालंकृतेन त्वया विरहं नैव सहाम इति चेदत आह – यत्त्वहमिति । दृशां दूरे यद्वर्ते तन्मदनुध्यानार्थम् । तच्च ध्यानं मनसः संनिकर्षार्थमिति ।। ३४ ।। एतदुपपादयति त्रयेण – यथा दूरचर इति ।। ३५ ।।

Gita Press translation – It is only with intent to focus your thought constantly on Me in order to ensure your mental proximity with Me that I, your Darling, am actually staying (so) far from your eyes (34). The mind of women as well as of others does not get so absorbed in the thought of their most beloved one living close by and open to their view as in that of one staying at a distance (35). Incessantly thinking of Me (as you do), having devoted to Me your whole (undivided) mind, which has completely shed all (other) thoughts, you will come to Me before long (36).

दूरे is सप्तमी-एकवचनम् of the नपुंसकलिङ्ग-प्रातिपदिकम् ‘दूर’।

(1) दूर + ङि । By 4-1-2 स्वौजसमौट्छष्टाभ्याम्भिस्ङेभ्याम्भ्यस्ङसिभ्याम्भ्यस्ङसोसाम्ङ्योस्सुप्‌। By 2-3-36 सप्तम्यधिकरणे च – A seventh case affix (‘ङि’, ‘ओस्’, ‘सुप्’) is used to denote अधिकरणम् (location), provided it has not been expressed otherwise. The use of ‘च’ in the सूत्रम् tells us that a seventh case affix is also used following a प्रातिपदिकम् (nominal stem) having the sense of either ‘far’ or ‘near.’
In the present example, ‘दूर’ has the sense of ‘far’. Hence ‘दूर’ takes a seventh case affix.

(2) दूर + इ । अनुबन्ध-लोपः by 1-3-8 लशक्वतद्धिते and 1-3-9 तस्य लोपः।

(3) दूरे । By 6-1-87 आद्गुणः

Questions:

1. In the first twenty verses of Chapter Thirteen of the गीता where has the सूत्रम् 2-3-36 सप्तम्यधिकरणे च (used in step 1) been used to prescribe a seventh case affix following a प्रातिपदिकम् (nominal stem) having the sense of either ‘far’ or ‘near’?

हरिः सर्वेषु भूतेषु भगवानास्त ईश्वरः । इति भूतानि मनसा कामैस्तैः साधु मानयेत् ।। ७-७-३२ ।।
एवं निर्जितषड्वर्गैः क्रियते भक्तिरीश्वरे । वासुदेवे भगवति यया संलभते रतिम् ।। ७-७-३३ ।।

श्रीधर-स्वामि-टीका
निर्जितः षण्णां कामक्रोधलोभमोहमदमत्सराणामिन्द्रियाणां वा वर्गो यैः ।। ३३ ।।

Gita Press translation – (Nay,) one should (as far as possible) duly gratify (the various) living beings with their objects of desire under the belief that the almighty Lord Śrī Hari is present in all created beings (32). In this way devotion to the all-powerful Lord Vāsudeva is practiced by those who have subdued the six senses (including the mind, the internal sense) – devotion through which one fully develops love (for Him) (33).

सर्वेषु is नपुंसकलिङ्गे सप्तमी-बहुवचनम् of the सर्वनाम-प्रातिपदिकम् ‘सर्व’। भूतेषु is सप्तमी-बहुवचनम् of the नपुंसकलिङ्ग-प्रातिपदिकम् ‘भूत’।

(1) सर्व + सुप् । By 4-1-2 स्वौजसमौट्छष्टाभ्याम्भिस्ङेभ्याम्भ्यस्ङसिभ्याम्भ्यस्ङसोसाम्ङ्योस्सुप्‌। As per the सूत्रम् 1-4-45 आधारोऽधिकरणम् – That कारकम् (participant in the action) which denotes the location/support – via the agent/object – of an action subsisting in the agent/object is called अधिकरणम् (location.)
In the present example, ‘भूत’ (qualified by the pronoun ‘सर्व’) is the कारकम् (participant in the action) which denotes the location/support – via the agent भगवान् – of the action आस्ते subsisting in the agent. Hence ‘भूत’/’सर्व’ get the designation अधिकरणम् (location.)
Note: औपश्‍लेषिको वैषयिकोऽभिव्‍यापकश्‍चेत्‍याधारस्‍त्रिधा – आधारः is of three kinds (i) औपश्‍लेषिक: involving contact or proximity (ii) वैषयिक: involving a subject matter (iii) अभिव्‍यापक: involving pervasion.
By 2-3-36 सप्तम्यधिकरणे च – A seventh case affix (‘ङि’, ‘ओस्’, ‘सुप्’) is used to denote अधिकरणम् (location), provided it has not been expressed otherwise. The use of ‘च’ in the सूत्रम् tells us that a seventh case affix is also used following a प्रातिपदिकम् (nominal stem) having the sense of either ‘far’ or ‘near.’

(2) सर्व + सु । अनुबन्ध-लोपः by 1-3-3 हलन्त्यम् and 1-3-9 तस्य लोपः।

(3) सर्वे + सु । By 7-3-103 बहुवचने झल्येत् – The ending letter ‘अ’ of a अङ्गम् changes to ‘ए’ when followed by a plural सुँप् affix beginning with a झल् letter.

(4) सर्वेषु । By 8-3-59 आदेशप्रत्यययोः

Similarly भूतेषु is derived from the नपुंसकलिङ्ग-प्रातिपदिकम् ‘भूत’।

Questions:

1. Where has the combination of 1-4-45 आधारोऽधिकरणम् and 2-3-36 सप्तम्यधिकरणे च been used for the first time in Chapter 13 of the गीता?

6. How would you say this in Sanskrit?

प्रधने mLs

Today we will look at the form प्रधने nLs from श्रीमद्भागवतम् 6.11.5.

किं व उच्चरितैर्मातुर्धावद्भिः पृष्ठतो हतैः । न हि भीतवधः श्लाघ्यो न स्वर्ग्यः शूरमानिनाम् ।। ६-११-४ ।।
यदि वः प्रधने श्रद्धा सारं वा क्षुल्लका हृदि । अग्रे तिष्ठत मात्रं मे न चेद् ग्राम्यसुखे स्पृहा ।। ६-११-५ ।।
एवं सुरगणान्क्रुद्धो भीषयन्वपुषा रिपून् । व्यनदत् सुमहाप्राणो येन लोका विचेतसः ।। ६-११-६ ।।

श्रीधर-स्वामि-टीका
तदेवाह द्वाभ्याम् । मातुरुच्चरितैः पुरीषप्रायैः । प्रथमान्तपाठे देवानां संबोधनम् । पृष्ठतो हतैर्दैत्यैः किम् । न किंचित् । न यशो नापि धर्मः । तदेवाह – नहीति ।। ४ ।। प्रधने संग्रामे । सारं धैर्यं हृदि चेत्तर्हि हे क्षुल्लकाः क्षुद्राः, मात्रं क्षणमात्रमग्रे तिष्ठतन चेदिह लोकभोगे स्पृहास्ति ।। ५ ।। सुरगणान् । सुमहान्प्राणो बलं यस्य । येन विचेतसो बभूवुः ।। ६ ।।

Gita Press translation – “What will be gained by you through these fugitives – who are no better than the excreta of their mother – being struck from behind? Indeed the slaughter of the terror-stricken is neither praiseworthy nor conducive to heavenly enjoyment for those who account themselves as brave (4). If you are keen about fighting or if there is courage in your heart, O vile creatures, and (again) if there is no craving (in your heart) for sensuous enjoyments, stand but for a moment before me” (5). Thus threatening the host of gods, his enemies, by his (words as well as by his gigantic form) figure, and full of rage, Vṛtra, who was possessed of vast strength, roared in such a way that people fainted (to hear the sound) (6).

Verses 4 and 5 have previously appeared in the following post – http://avg-sanskrit.org/2013/05/21/श्रद्धा-fns/

प्रधने is सप्तमी-एकवचनम् of the नपुंसकलिङ्ग-प्रातिपदिकम् ‘प्रधन’।

In the present example, ‘प्रधन’ is the कारकम् (participant in the action) which denotes the location/support – via the agent श्रद्धा – of the (implied) action अस्ति subsisting in the agent. Hence ‘प्रधन’ gets the designation अधिकरणम् (location.)
Note: औपश्‍लेषिको वैषयिकोऽभिव्‍यापकश्‍चेत्‍याधारस्‍त्रिधा – आधारः is of three kinds (i) औपश्‍लेषिक: involving contact or proximity (ii) वैषयिक: involving a subject matter (iii) अभिव्‍यापक: involving pervasion. By 2-3-36 सप्तम्यधिकरणे च – A seventh case affix (‘ङि’, ‘ओस्’, ‘सुप्’) is used to denote अधिकरणम् (location), provided it has not been expressed otherwise. The use of ‘च’ in the सूत्रम् tells us that a seventh case affix is also used following a प्रातिपदिकम् (nominal stem) having the sense of either ‘far’ or ‘near.’

Gita Press translation – When Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa (the Bestower of Liberation) bodily departed from this earth, leaving behind His stories which are charming to the ear, that very day entered the Kali age, which leads men of unawakened consciousness to unrighteousness (36). The wise king Yudhiṣṭhira saw the growth of vices like greed, falsehood, deceit and violence etc., not only in the city (of Hastināpura) but in the whole of his state, nay, in every home as well as in the mind of the people, and, concluding therefrom the advance of the Kali age, prepared to depart from this world (37).

अवतारचरितमाह । भवानिमां क्षोणीं मया मनुना सह मत्सहितां धृत्वेत्यध्याहारः । ऊर्मिमालावति प्रलयार्णवे ओजसा क्रमते विचरति । यद्वा पातुमित्यस्यानुषङ्गः । क्षोणीं पातुं क्रमते । उत्सहत इत्यर्थः । यतोऽजः । कीदृशीम् । ओषधीनां वीरुधां च निधिमाश्रयभूताम् । तस्मै नमः। जगतो यः प्राणगणस्तस्यात्मने नियन्त्रे ।। २८ ।। तत्प्रियतमां तां प्रियतमाम् ।। २९ ।।

Gita Press translation – “Holding (by a cord) this earth – a storehouse of annual plants and creepers (etc.) – including myself (then known as Satyavrata) You, the birthless Lord, sported far and wide with (great) vigor in the ocean, that was, at the time of universal dissolution tumultuous with waves. Hail to such a Lord, the (inner) Controller of the multitudes of animate beings !”(28) In Hiraṇmayavarṣa, again, the Lord resides in (lit., having assumed) the form of the (Divine) Tortoise. Along with the denizens of this subdivision of the earth, Aryamā, the lord of the hosts of manes, adores that most beloved manifestation of the Lord, and repeats this prayer (29).

हिरण्मये is पुंलिङ्गे सप्तमी-एकवचनम् of the प्रातिपदिकम् ‘हिरण्मय’।

(1) हिरण्मय + ङि । By 4-1-2 स्वौजसमौट्छष्टाभ्याम्भिस्ङेभ्याम्भ्यस्ङसिभ्याम्भ्यस्ङसोसाम्ङ्योस्सुप्‌। As per the सूत्रम् 1-4-45 आधारोऽधिकरणम् – That कारकम् (participant in the action) which denotes the location/support – via the agent/object – of an action subsisting in the agent/object is called अधिकरणम् (location.)
In the present example, ‘हिरण्मय’ is the कारकम् (participant in the action) which denotes the location/support – via the agent भगवान् – of the action निवसति subsisting in the agent. Hence ‘हिरण्मय’ gets the designation अधिकरणम् (location.)
Note: औपश्‍लेषिको वैषयिकोऽभिव्‍यापकश्‍चेत्‍याधारस्‍त्रिधा – आधारः is of three kinds (i) औपश्‍लेषिक: involving contact or proximity (ii) वैषयिक: involving a subject matter (iii) अभिव्‍यापक: involving pervasion.
By 2-3-36 सप्तम्यधिकरणे च – A seventh case affix (‘ङि’, ‘ओस्’, ‘सुप्’) is used to denote अधिकरणम् (location), provided it has not been expressed otherwise. The use of ‘च’ in the सूत्रम् tells us that a seventh case affix is also used following a प्रातिपदिकम् (nominal stem) having the sense of either ‘far’ or ‘near.’

(2) हिरण्मय + इ । अनुबन्ध-लोपः by 1-3-8 लशक्वतद्धिते and 1-3-9 तस्य लोपः।

(3) हिरण्मये । By 6-1-87 आद्गुणः

आत्मनः nGs

Today we will look at the form आत्मनः mGs from श्रीमद्भागवतम् 4.1.65.

भवस्य पत्नी तु सती भवं देवमनुव्रता । आत्मनः सदृशं पुत्रं न लेभे गुणशीलतः ।। ४-१-६५ ।।
पितर्यप्रतिरूपे स्वे भवायानागसे रुषा । अप्रौढैवात्मनात्मानमजहाद्योगसंयुता ।। ४-१-६६ ।।

श्रीधर-स्वामि-टीका
गुणशीलत आत्मनः सदृशं देवमनुव्रतापि सती पुत्रं न लेभे ।। ६५ ।। तत्र हेतुः – स्वे पितरि दक्षेऽप्रतिरूपेऽसदृशे प्रतिकूले सतीत्यर्थः । आत्मना स्वयमेवात्मानं देहमजहात्त्यक्तवती । योगसंयुता योगमाश्रित्येति ।। ६६ ।।

Translation – Satī (Dakṣa’s youngest daughter and) the Consort of Bhava (Lord Śiva), was devoted to Lord Bhava, but did not get a son resembling herself in good qualities and character. For, while yet very young, she dropped her body of her own accord by dint of Yoga (concentration of mind), in a spirit of indignation against her father (Dakṣa) on account of his antagonism against Lord Bhava, who had done him no wrong (65-66).

आत्मनः is षष्ठी-एकवचनम् of the पुंलिङ्ग-प्रातिपदिकम् ‘आत्मन्’।

(1) आत्मन् + ङस् । By 4-1-2 स्वौजसमौट्छष्टाभ्याम्भिस्ङेभ्याम्भ्यस्ङसिँभ्याम्भ्यस्ङसोसाम्ङ्योस्सुप्। As per the सूत्रम् 2-3-72 तुल्यार्थैरतुलोपमाभ्यां तृतीयान्यतरस्याम्‌ – A third case affix (‘टा’, ‘भ्याम्’, ‘भिस्’) or a sixth case affix (‘ङस्’, ‘ओस्’, ‘आम्’) is used following a प्रातिपदिकम् (nominal stem) co-occurring with ‘तुल्य’ (equal/similar to) or any of its synonyms – but not ‘तुला’ or ‘उपमा’।

In the present example, ‘आत्मन्’ is co-occurring with ‘सदृश’ (a synonym of ‘तुल्य’)। Therefore ‘आत्मन्’ takes the sixth case affix. Optionally ‘आत्मन्’ could take the third case affix.

(2) आत्मन् + अस् । अनुबन्ध-लोपः by 1-3-8 लशक्वतद्धिते and 1-3-9 तस्य लोपः। 1-3-4 न विभक्तौ तुस्माः prevents the ending letter ‘स्’ of the affix ‘ङस्’ from getting इत्-सञ्ज्ञा।

(3) आत्मनः । रुँत्व-विसर्गौ by 8-2-66 ससजुषो रुः and 8-3-15 खरवसानयोर्विसर्जनीयः

Today we will look at the form विष्णुना mIs from श्रीमद्-वाल्मीकि-रामायणम् 1.1.18.

विष्णुना सदृशो वीर्ये सोमवत्प्रियदर्शनः । कालाग्निसदृशः क्रोधे क्षमया पृथिवीसमः ।। १-१-१८ ।।
धनदेन समस्त्यागे सत्ये धर्म इवापरः । तमेवङ्गुणसम्पन्नं रामं सत्यपराक्रमम् ।। १-१-१९ ।।
ज्येष्ठं ज्येष्ठगुणैर्युक्तं प्रियं दशरथः सुतम् । प्रकृतीनां हितैर्युक्तं प्रकृतिप्रियकाम्यया ।। १-१-२० ।।
यौवराज्येन संयोक्तुमैच्छत्प्रीत्या महीपतिः ।। first half of verse १-१-२१ ।।

Gita Press translation – He is a replica of Lord Viṣṇu in prowess and is pleasing of aspect as the moon. In (show of) anger he resembles the destructive fire at the end of creation and is a counterpart of Mother Earth in forbearance (18). He equals Kubera (the god of riches, the bestower of wealth) in liberality and is another Dharma (the god of piety) as it were in point of truthfulness. With intent to gratify the people, the king (Emperor Daśaratha) lovingly sought to invest with the office of Regent, his beloved son, Śrī Rāma, who possessed unfailing prowess and was adorned with the aforesaid qualities, who was not only the eldest (of his four sons in point of age) but was also endowed with the highest virtues and devoted to the interests of the people (verses 19,20 and first half of verse 21).

These verses have previously appeared in the following post – http://avg-sanskrit.org/2013/03/08/त्यागे-mls/

विष्णुना is तृतीया-एकवचनम् of the पुंलिङ्ग-प्रातिपदिकम् ‘विष्णु’।

(1) विष्णु + टा । By 4-1-2 स्वौजसमौट्छष्टाभ्याम्भिस्ङेभ्याम्भ्यस्ङसिभ्याम्भ्यस्ङसोसाम्ङ्योस्सुप्‌। As per 2-3-72 तुल्यार्थैरतुलोपमाभ्यां तृतीयान्यतरस्याम्‌ – A third case affix (‘टा’, ‘भ्याम्’, ‘भिस्’) or a sixth case affix (‘ङस्’, ‘ओस्’, ‘आम्’) is used following a प्रातिपदिकम् (nominal stem) co-occurring with ‘तुल्य’ (equal/similar to) or any of its synonyms – but not ‘तुला’ or ‘उपमा’।
In the present example, ‘विष्णु’ is co-occurring with ‘सदृश’ (a synonym of ‘तुल्य’)। Therefore ‘विष्णु’ takes the third case affix. Optionally ‘विष्णु’ could take the sixth case affix.

‘विष्णु’ gets the घि-सञ्ज्ञा by 1-4-7 शेषो घ्यसखि।

(2) विष्णु + आ । अनुबन्ध-लोपः by 1-3-7 चुटू and 1-3-9 तस्य लोपः।

(3) विष्णुना । By 7-3-120 आङो नाऽस्त्रियाम् – Following a अङ्गम् having घि-सञ्ज्ञा, the affix ‘आङ्’ is replaced by ‘ना’, but not in the feminine gender. ‘आङ्’ is an ancient name for the (instrumental singular) affix ‘टा’।
