 Aṣṭādhyāyī (Ashtadhyayi)

Uma escritura que consiste em oito capítulos


The Aṣṭādhyāyī (lit. a book containing eight "adhyāya-s" or "chapters") is the corner stone of Sanskrit grammar. It was composed by the greatest Sanskrit grammarian of all time: Pāṇini (who lived in India around 500BCE). I could write a long introduction to this scripture —I could speak about markers, pratyāhāra-s, anubandha-s, etc.—, but it would be unnecessary because there is already a good article in Wikipedia about it (though not so truthful and complete like the version in English, check it out if you read this language). The only difference I have with that article is that they counted 3959 aphorisms while I counted 3983. All in all, in the Sanskrit universe we say that Sanskrit grammar contains ~4000 rules (3983) because this is the number of aphorisms in this sacred scripture.

As this is a translation only, I cannot be explaining every cryptic aphorism in detail. For a rather complete explanation, check here: Aṣṭādhyāyī - Explanation.
