This synonym was identified by Narahari in his 13th-century Rājanighaṇṭu (verses 6.72-75), which is an Ayurvedic medicinal thesaurus. The synonym can also be divided as two separate synonyms, Śūlaghna and Gulmaghna.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
