Bheraṇḍa (भेरण्ड) or Bheraṇḍaka or Bheruṇḍaka.—m. (Pali bheraṇḍaka, jackal acc. to Jāt. comm. v.276.9; the form bheruṇḍa, cited by Burnouf, Lotus 371, is read bheruṇḍaka in our SP, and has, doubtless by chance, not been noted else- where in BHS), some sort of beast of prey which makes a terrible sound (Mv ii.140.15 °ḍa-bhairava [mss. bhīrava, bhīruva]-ruteṣu; iii.123.9; 264.12) and eats human flesh (SP 83.11; 85.13); Tibetan renders variously, on Mvy 4785 spyaṅ (wolf) or ce spyaṅ (jackal, acc. to Das also fox); on SP 83.11 ce spyaṅ, on 85.13 and 86.12 lce spyaṅ (= ce spyaṅ); on LV 306.6 wa (fox, but compare wa spyaṅ, jackal); the word śṛgāla, jackal, is probably a different animal, since it is closely associated with our word in LV 306.6; SP 83.11 and 86.12; in LV, where Tibetan wa renders our word, śṛgāla is rendered by ce spyaṅ, while in the two SP passages the reverse is the case, wa rendering śṛgāla! Kern on SP renders hyena, a plausible guess. Forms: bheraṇḍa Mv ii.140.15; °ḍaka Mv iii.123.9 (both verses); bheruṇḍaka Mvy 4785; Mv iii.264.12 (prose); SP 83.11; 85.13; 86.12 (all verses); LV 306.6 (prose). In Deśīn. 6.108 bheruṇḍa is defined dīvī (= dvīpin; comm. citrakaḥ); the hyena is ‘spotted’, as well as the leopard.Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: Benfey Sanskrit-English Dictionary
