Caityadruma (चैत्यद्रुम) corresponds to the Tibetan mchod-rten-śiṅ.—Caitya may be a tope as well as a sacred tree (usually the Pipal or Bodhi tree, Ficus religiosa L.) in Buddhist terminology. The Tibetan equivalent mchod-rten denotes only the former, its etymology being “receptacle of oblations”; the latter is called mchod-rten-śiṅ, which corresponds to Sanskrit Caityadruma.
