abhijāti : [f.] 1. rebirth; descent; 2. species.

Abhijāti (f.) abhi + jāti 1. Species.

Only as t. t. in use by certain non -- Buddhist teachers.

They divided mankind into six species, each named after a colour D i.53, 54; A iii.383 ff. (quoted DA i.162) gives details of each species.

Two of them, the black and the white, are interpreted in a Buddhist sense at D iii.250, M ii.222, and Netti 158.

This interpretation (but not the theory of the six species) has been widely adopted by subsequent Hindu writers. -- 2. Rebirth, descent, Miln 226
