dūrvā A species of grass (Panicum dactylon), is mentioned frequently from the Rigveda onwards. It grew in damp ground. A simile occurring in the Rigveda seems to indicate that the ears lay horizontal with the stem. Cf. Pākadūrvā.
pākadūrvā Is, in a verse of the Rigveda, included with Kiyāmbu and Vyalkaśā among the plants used for growing on the spot where the corpse of the dead man has been consumed with fire. The verse is repeated in the Taittirīya Aranyaka. with the variant Kyāmbu. In the Atharvaveda the word is read śāndadūrvā. Pākadūrvā is probably, as Sāyana understands it, parifiakva-dūrvā, ‘ ripe or edible millet.’ śāndadūrvā is explained by the commentator in various ways, as millet * having egg-shaped roots ’ (i.e., sānda, not śānda), or as * having long joints,’ with the additional remark that it was called brhad- dūrvā, ‘ large millet.’ In the Taittirīya Aranyaka, on the other, hand, the commentary explains Pākadūrvā as small millet.
