Etymology from India
The etymology of the word pundit comes the original ancient Sanskrit word "Paṇḍita" used in India at least since 200 B.C. to refer to a very learned man or scholar in the realm of Indian philosophy, Hinduism (the Vedas and Upanishads), Buddhism (the Dharma of the Sutras - Shastras), or the "Five Sciences". These five sciences include medicine (Ayurvedic medicine or cikitsāvidyā), language (śabdavidyā), logic (hetuvidyā), arts - crafts (śilakarmasthānavidyā), and religion (adhyātmavidyā). An example is Sakya Pandita of Tibet.
