 etád [ etad ]

mfn. ( Gr. 223; gaṇa sarvâ`di, Pāṇ. i, 1, 27 ) this, this here, here ( especially as pointing to what is nearest to the speaker, e.g. eṣa bāṇaḥ, this arrow here in my hand eṣa yāti panthāḥ, here passes the way; eṣa kālaḥ, here, i.e. now, is the time; etad, this here, i.e. this world here below )

sometimes used to give emphasis to the personal pronouns ( e.g. eṣo'ham, I, this very person here ) or with omission of those pronouns ( e.g. eṣa tvāṃ svargaṃ nayāmi, I standing here will convey thee to heaven; etau praviṣṭau svaḥ, we two here have entered )

as the subject of a sentence it agrees in gender and number with the predicate without reference to the noun to be supplied ( e.g. etad eva hi me dhanam, for this [ scil. cow ] is my only wealth, MBh. )

but sometimes the neuter sing. remains ( e.g. etad guruṣu vṛttiḥ, this is the custom among Gurus, Mn. ii, 206 )

etad generally refers to what precedes, esp. when connected with idam, the latter then referring to what follows ( e.g. eṣa vai prathamaḥ kalpaḥ anukalpas tv ayaṃ jñeyaḥ, this before-mentioned is the principal rule, but this following may be considered a secondary rule, Mn. iii, 147 )

it refers also to that which follows, esp. when connected with a relative clause ( e.g. eṣa ca ^ˆi`va gurur dharmo yam pravakṣyāmy ahaṃ tava, this is the important law, which I will proclaim to you, MBh. ) RV. etc.
