khara खर

Definition: Ass,’ is mentioned in the Aitareya Aranyaka, where a team of asses is alluded to. Probably the passages in the śatapatha Brāhmana, where the word is used to denote an earth mound on which the sacrificial vessels were placed, pre­suppose the sense of ‘ ass,’ the mound being shaped in this form.
