Is found in two passages of the Rigveda meaning ‘ berry,’ used with a mystic signification, and in neither case with any certain reference to the berry of the fig-tree. In the Brhadāranyaka Upanisad the general sense of ‘berry’ is not necessary, and the special sense of ‘berry’ of the Peepal is quite possible: the latter meaning is perhaps intended in the śatapatha Brāhmana. In the Atharvaveda the feminine form of the word, Pippalī, appears denoting berries used as a remedy for wounds, like Arundhatī.
