vyāghra ‘Tiger,’ is never found in the Rigveda, but frequently occurs in the Atharvaveda, as well as the lion. This fact is legitimately regarded as an indication that the Atharvaveda belongs to a period when the Vedic Indian had approached and entered the territory of Bengal. Later, also, mention of the tiger is quite common. The Taittirīya Samhitā preserves a reference to the danger of waking a sleeping tiger. The destructive character of the animal is often alluded to, the man-eater (purusād) being also mentioned. Like the lion, the tiger passes as a symbol of strength. This idea is illus­trated by the fact that the king at the Rājasūya ('royal consecration') steps on a tiger’s skin to win himself the strength of the animal. Cf. also śārdūla, Petva.
