Kshatriya Kulavantas Meaning

It is one complete compound phrase: Kshatriya Kulavantas in Sanskrit, क्षत्रियकुलावतंस (kṣatriyakulāvataṃsa) in Sanskrit, borrowed in different languages. The root of the word is tasi – तसि (तंस्) अलंकरणे (tasi [taṃs] alaṃkaraṇe) -which connotes the meanings, ‘ to beautify’, ‘to bejewel’.

Along with the upasarga (prefix) ava, this root forms the word अवतंस (avataṃsa), which means ‘adornment’, ‘gem’, ‘jewel’, or generically anything used to adorn and decorate. For instance, śirovataṃsa is ‘crest jewel’, karṇāvataṃsa is ‘ear-jewel’, or a necklace or a garland, etc.

In the word in question, the word avataṃsa is used as an adjective for the word kṣatriyakulā (ruling clan, the class of kings). So, combined, kṣatriyakulāvataṃsa is a word used to describe a king or a prince as a ‘jewel of Kshatriya-s (rulers)’, a ‘gem among the ruling class. Generally, it gives the meaning, ‘the best or greatest (Shikha-jewel) among the Kshatriya lineage’.
