puṣkara Is the name in the Rigveda and later of the blue lotus flower. The Atharvaveda mentions its sweet perfume. The lotus grew in lakes, which were thence called puskarinī, ‘lotus-bearing.’ That the flower was early used for personal adornment is shown by an epithet of the Aśvins, ‘ lotus- crowned’ (puskara-sraj). Presumably because of its likeness in shape to the flower of the lotus, the bowl of the ladle is called Puṣkara, perhaps already in the Rigveda,® and certainly in the Aitareya Brāh- maṇa. Moreover, according to the Nirukta, Puṣkara means ‘ water,’ a sense actually found in the śatapatha Brāhmaria.
