This word denotes generally the skin of an animal —e.g., a gazelle,as well as that of a goat (Aja). The use of skins as clothing is shown by the adjective ‘ clothed in skins ’ (ajina-vāsin) in the śatapatha Brāhmana, and the furrier’s trade is mentioned in the Vājasaneyi Samhitā. The Maruts also wear deer-skins, and the wild ascetics (muni) of a late Rigveda hymn seem to be clad in skins (Mala).
