Ayurveda (science of life)
Indrayava (इन्द्रयव) is a Sanskrit name referring to the seeds of Kuṭaja (Wrightia antidysenterica, “Kurchi fruit”), from the Apocynaceae family. The term is used throughout Āyurvedic literature such as the Carakasaṃhitā. This synonym was identified by Amarasiṃha in his Amarakośa (a Sanskrit botanical thesaurus from the 4th century). The word Indrayava is composed of Indra and yava (‘seed’).
According to the Mādhavacikitsā (7th century Āyurvedic work), the plant (Indrayava) is also mentioned as a medicine used for the treatment of all major fevers, as described in the Jvaracikitsā (or “the treatment of fever”) chapter. In this work, the plant is also known by the names Kuṭaja, Kaliṅga, Vatsaka and Indrabīja.Source: Wisdom Library: Āyurveda and botany
