More facts:
  • The first four sections (kāṇḍa) give synsets and the fifth section lists polysemes with their different meanings.
  • This kōśa is unique in that it uses many different metres.
  • This latter fact strengthens the identity of its author with the commentator of the Mṛtasañjīvinī.

  • Nāgavarma’s Kannada lexicon Abhidhānavastukośa derives much of its structure and content from the Abhidhānaratnamālā.
