In the Rigveda and later denotes ‘'wealth' 'possessions.' The earth is referred to in the Taittirīya Upaniṣad3 as full of riches (vittasya pcirna). The doctrine that a man’s greatness depends on his wealth is found as early as the Taittirīya Brāhmaṇa.4 The striving after wealth (vittaisanā) is mentioned in the Brhadāraṇyaka Upaniṣad6 as one of the things abandoned by the sage.
Denotes an ‘elder brother who is not married when his younger brother is.’ The term occurs in the list of sinful persons in the Yajurveda Samhitās as well as in the Atharvaveda, where Ludwig needlessly proposes to read parivettā, the ‘younger brother who marries before his eldest brother.’ The name for the younger brother in the older texts is Parivividāna.
