897. Participles of the s-aorist

a. Active participles are dákṣat or dhákṣat, and sákṣat (both RV.).

b. If ṛñjase (above, 894 d) is to be reckoned as an s-aorist form, ṛñjasāná is an s-aorist participle; and of a kindred character, apparently, are arçasāná, óhasāna, jrayasāná, dhiyasāná, mandasāná, yamasāná, rabhasāná, vṛdhasāná, sahasāná, çavasāná, all in RV.; with namasāná, bhiyásāna, in AV. In RV. occurs also oncedhī́ṣamāṇa, apparently an a-form of an s-aorist of √dhī.
