षट्सु mLp

Today we will look at the form षट्सु from श्रीमद्भागवतम् SB 10-2-4

हतेषु षट्सु बालेषु देवक्या औग्रसेनिना ।। १०-२-४ ।।
सप्तमो वैष्णवं धाम यमनन्तं प्रचक्षते ।
गर्भो बभूव देवक्या हर्षशोकविवर्धनः ।। १०-२-५ ।।

Gita Press translation “When six boys of Devakī had been killed by Kaṁsa (the son of Ugrasena), a ray of Lord Viṣṇu, whom the devotees speak of as Lord Ananta, entered the womb of Devakī as her seventh child, that went to enhance her delight and grief at the same time.”

‘षष्’ gets प्रातिपदिकसञ्ज्ञा by 1-2-45 अर्थवदधातुरप्रत्ययः प्रातिपदिकम्। The विवक्षा here is सप्तमी-बहुवचनम्4-1-2 स्वौजसमौट्छष्टाभ्याम्भिस्ङेभ्याम्भ्यस्ङसिँभ्याम्भ्यस्ङसोसाम्ङ्योस्सुप् mandates the प्रत्ययाः सुँ, औ, जस् etc. after the प्रातिपदिकम् ‘षष्’ । “षष्” is a नित्यं बहुवचनान्त: शब्द:।

(1) षष् + सुप् ।

(2) षष् + सु । अनुबन्ध-लोपः by 1-3-3 हलन्त्यम् and 1-3-9 तस्य लोपः। “षष्” gets पद-सञ्ज्ञा by 1-4-17 स्वादिष्वसर्वनामस्थाने

(3) षड् + सु । By 8-2-39 झलां जशोऽन्ते, a झल् letter occurring at the end of a पदम् is replaced by a जश् letter.

(4) षट्सु । By 8-4-55 खरि च, the डकारः (झल् letter) is replaced by टकारः (चर् letter) since सकारः (खर् letter) follows.

Questions :

1. Is there an alternate (final) form possible in this example?

2. Where has the आट्-आगम: been used in this verse?

3. Can you spot a नकारान्त-प्रातिपदिकम् in the verse?

4. Which प्रातिपदिकम् used here has the सर्वनाम-सञ्ज्ञा?

5. True or false?
“षष्” is the only षकारान्त-शब्द: that has the षट्-सञ्ज्ञा।

6. Where has the सूत्रम् 7-3-120 आङो नाऽस्त्रियाम् been used?

7. How would you say this in Sanskrit?
“How would you say this in Sanskrit?” – Paraphrase this to “How is this to be said in the Sanskrit language?” Use the adjective प्रातिपदिकम् “वक्तव्य” for “to be said” and the feminine प्रातिपदिकम् “संस्कृत-भाषा” for the “Sanskrit language.”

8. Please state the one synonym for the word “गर्भ:” (प्रातिपदिकम् “गर्भ” masculine, meaning “womb”) as given in the अमरकोश:।
गर्भो भ्रूण इमौ समौ ।।२-६-३९।।
(इति द्वे “गर्भस्य” नामनी)

Easy questions:

1. Derive the form “बालेषु” (सप्तमी-बहुवचनम्) from the प्रातिपदिकम् “बाल” – declined like राम-शब्द:।

2. Can you spot where the सूत्रम् 8-3-22 हलि सर्वेषाम् has been used?
