ktavatu क्तवतु

Definition: kṛt affix तवत् which also is called निष्ठा. It is prescribed in the active sense of somebody who has done a thing sometime in the past. A word ending in it is equivalent to the past active participle; e.g. भुक्तवान् ब्राह्मणः cf P.I.1.26. The fem. affix डीप् (ई) is added to nouns ending in क्तवतु to form feminine bases; cf. P.IV.1.6.
