gaura गौर

Definition: A species of ox (Bos gaurus), is frequently mentioned with the Gavaya from the Rigveda onwards. As the Vāja­saneyi Samhitā expressly mentions wild (āraηya) Gaúras, they must usually have been tame. The female, Gaurī, is also often referred to. The compound term Gaura-mrga (‘ the Gaura wild beast ’) is sometimes met with.
