Āstṛta (आस्तृत) refers to “covered”, which is mentioned in verse 3.13 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Accordingly, “[...] Having thereupon bathed according to ritual—with the oil removed by an astringent—,rubbed (one’s body) with musk-charged saffron, (and) fumigated (oneself) with aloe-wood one shall (at last) turn to [...] fresh victuals, lard, (and) sesame-oil; (besides), to tepid water for purification (and) a bed covered [viz., āstṛta] with a quilt, hide, and silk, ramie, or goat’s-hair sheet [...]”.

Note: The following adjective-compound, which is dependent upon śayana (“bed”) in 14 b, has been separated from its governing noun and treated as a copulative compound, with the final āstṛta (“covered”) nominalized into gdiṅ (“carpet”). For identifying the various textiles here mentioned, we have consulted the commentaries of Aruṇadatta, Candranandana, Hemādri, Indu, and Cakrapāṇidatta (on Carakasaṃhitā 16.15).
