Sims-Williams N. A Buddhist Technical Term in Christian Sogdian // Pis'mennye pamiatniki Vostoka. Vol. 18, no. 3 (46), 2021, pp. 32–36.


A Buddhist technical term in Christian Sogdian. This article surveys the Indian (Sanskrit and Prakrit) loanwords used in the Christian literature in Sogdian, including some which have not been noticed previously. In particular, it discusses a possible borrowing of the Buddhist Sanskrit technical term citta-saṃtāna-, used in a Christian Sogdian text in the sense “train of thought”. Finally, it raises the question whether snks’r, the Buddhist Sogdian equivalent of Sanskrit saṃsāra- “cycle of existence”, may result from a confusion between this term and saṃskāra- “conditioned state”.
