√ 3 , “rise against”

2 pā

3 pā


BR. refer to such a root certain forms from the reduplicated middle stem pipī with prefix ud. Since, however, such forms occur with the unquestionable meaning “drink”, and, on the other hand, forms from ut-piba ( ŚB.) with the meaning given to √ 3 , it seems probable that we have here only a curiously specialized use of ud+√ 1 pā.
