maṇi Is the name in the Rigveda and later of a ‘jewel’ used as an amulet against all kinds of evil. That either ‘pearl’ or ‘diamond’ is denoted is not clear. It is evident that the Maṇi could be strung on a thread (sūtra), which is referred to in the Pañcavimśa Brāhmaṇa and elsewhere; the Maṇi was certainly also worn round the neck, for in the Rigveda occurs the epithet mani-grīva, ‘ having a jewel on the neck.’ An amulet of Bilva is celebrated in the śāñkhāyana Áraṇyaka, and many varieties of amulet are there enumerated. The ‘jeweller’ (mani-kāra) is mentioned in the list of victims at the Puruṣamedha (‘ human sacrifice ’) in the Yajurveda.
