General definition (in Hinduism)

Source: archive.org: Vedic index of Names and Subjects

Dṛṣad (दृषद्) appears in the Rigveda and Atharvaveda to denote not a millstone, but merely a stone used to pound grain, which was placed on another stone as a support. When used later in connexion with Upalā, the lower and the upper millstone, or mortar and pestle may be meant; but this is not certain. Eggeling renders them as the large and small millstones. See also Upara and Upalā.

context information

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
