Jambukāñcana (जम्बुकाञ्चन).—probably to be read, with two mss. in first passage, for jāmbu° in Lalitavistara 122.15 ekā kākini jāmbu-kāñcane bhavati upahatā, and 17 jām- būkāñcanasaṃnibhā punar bhavet sakara iya mahī (both verses); the meaning seems evidently gold from the Jambu river, and it is hard to believe that ā in the first syllable is anything but a corruption (if an adjectival form, it should be jāmbava; the ā of jāmbunada, jāmbū°, is justi- fied because that is derived from °nadī with suffix -a).

Jambukāñcana can also be spelled as Jambūkāñcana (जम्बूकाञ्चन).
