कृत्वस्

kṛ'tvas [ kRtvas ]


ind. at the end of a numeral or numeral adjective, = fold, times ( e.g. daśa-kṛtvas, ten times

bahu-k°, many times

pañca-k°, fivefold Pāṇ. 2-3, 64). In the Veda kṛ'tvas is used as a separate word ( e.g. bhū'ri k°, many times RV. iii, 18, 4

páñca k° TS. vi ), but according to Pāṇ. 5-4, 17 and 20 ( Vop. vii, 70 ) it is only an affix, and it is so used in classical Sanskṛt

it was originally an acc. pl. fr. kṛtu, formed by the affix tu fr. √ 1. kṛ ( cf. also kṛt in sakṛ't. )
