Ehireyāhira (एहिरेयाहिर) in Prakrit refers to “comes and goes”, as is mentioned in the Vividhatīrthakalpa by Jinaprabhasūri (13th century A.D.): an ancient text devoted to various Jaina holy places (tīrthas).—Notes: this popular formation is based on the analytical expression “ehi re yāhi re”, come, go (Wackernagel II. 1 p. 329; Renou 1961 p. 122). The compound ehireyāhirā is attested late: Bloomfield 1919 p. 224-25. For other references, cf. Bloomfield 1924 p. 227 (where he specifies that this word appears only in Jaina literature).
