didhiṣu In the Rigveda denotes a ‘wooer.’ It is applied to the relative, probably brother-in-law, who takes the place of the husband at the funeral rite, and who, as in the Hebraic levirate, is to beget a child by the brother’s wife if there is no son. Hillebrandt and Lanman consider that the word originally meant only ‘wooer,’ and applied to the king who, after the chief queen had lain beside the dead victim in the Purusamedha or ‘ human sacrifice,’ claimed her again; but this view is hardly plausible. The term is also applied to the god Pūsan as the wooer of his mother, apparently Sūryā
didhiṣūpati Occurs in the Kāthaka and Kapisthala Sam­hitās, as well as in the Apastamba, Gautama, and Vasistha
edidhiṣuḥpati Is a term occurring only in the Vājasaneyi Samhitā, where the commentator Mahīdhara interprets it as meaning the * husband of a younger sister married before the elder sister.’ Though this sense is probably correct, the form is doubtless, as Delbruck points out, corrupt. See Didhisūpati.
