Is a word of doubtful significance in the śatapatha Brāhmaṇa. According to Sāyaṇa, it means ‘ remaining in one and the same place if this is right, the rendering of the St. Petersburg Dictionary and of Bohtlingk’s Dictionary, ‘ one whose herd is stationary,’ seems legitimate. But, as Eggeling points out, the Kāṇva recension of the śatapatha Brāhmaṇa in another passage8 seems to treat the word as denoting a disease: thus Viṣthāvrājin may mean ‘one afflicted by dysentery.’
