tantu Appears properly to mean ‘ thread,’ and in particular the ‘warp * of a piece of weaving, as opposed to Otu, the ‘ woof.’ Both senses are found in the Atharvaveda. In the śatapatha Brāhmana the ‘warp’ is called aηuchāda, the ‘woof’ paryāsa, the taηtavah being the ‘threads.’ In the Taittirīya Samhitā, on the other hand, the ‘warp’ is prācīna-tāna, the ‘woof’ otu. The threads or cords of the throne (Paryañka) are referred to in the Kausītaki Upanisad. In the Rigveda the word is used only metaphorically, and this is its most frequent use even in the Brāhmanas. See also Vāna.
