Avagāhana (अवगाहन) refers to “bathing”, mentioned in verse 4.20-22 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Accordingly, “[...] from (suppressed) sperm (result) its outflow, pubic pain, cutaneous swelling, fever, throbbing of the heart, retention of urine, racking in the limbs, swelling of the testicles, gravel, and impotence. Cock, arrack, rice, enema, inunction, bathing [viz., avagāhana], milk prepared with bladder-cleansing (substances, and) lovely women one shall turn to in this case”.
Note: Avagāhana (“bathing”) has again been turned lus spyiṅ (“dipping the body”); as in v. 6, CD write bciṅ for spyiṅ, which does not make sense and appears to be a xylographical error occasioned by homophony.Source: gurumukhi.ru: Ayurveda glossary of terms
