śloka श्लोक

Definition: In the plural, is found enumerated after the Upaniṣads, and before the Sūtras, in the list of literary types given in the Brhadāraṇyaka Upaniṣad. In the Taittirīya Upaniṣad- the Sloka-kṛt appears: he is rather the ‘poet,’ as Max Muller renders it, than merely one who ‘calls aloud,’ as the St. Peters­burg Dictionary explains the term. Exactly what is meant cannot be said: ‘verses’ generally may be intended, several kinds being preserved in the Brāhmaṇas and called ślokas.
