Dhātrīphala (धात्रीफल) refers to an Emblic myrobalan according to the Śivapurāṇa 1.25, while explaining the greatness of Rudrākṣa:—“[...] A Rudrākṣa of the size of an Emblic myrobalan (Dhātrīphala) is mentioned as the most excellent; one of the size of the fruit of the jujube tree (Badarīphala) is spoken of as the middling. [...] That which is of the size of the Emblic myrobalan (Dhātrīphala) is conducive to the destruction of all distresses”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.
