nāga नाग

Definition: Appears once in the Satapatha Brāhmana in the form mahāηāga, where ‘ great snake ’ or ‘ great elephant ’ may be meant. In the Brhadāranyaka Upanisad, and in a citation found in the Aitareya Brāhmana the sense of ‘elephant’ is clearly intended. In the Sūtras the mythic Nāga already occurs.
