Javāsa in the Hindi language is another name for Yavāsa, a medicinal plant possibly identified with Alhagi pseudalhagi, synonym of Alhagi maurorum (“camelthorn”) from the Fabaceae or legume family of flowering plants, according to verse 4. 44-46 of the 13th-century Raj Nighantu or Rājanighaṇṭu. The fourth chapter (śatāhvādi-varga) of this book enumerates eighty varieties of small plants (pṛthu-kṣupa). Other than the Hindi word Javāsa, there are more synonyms identified for this plant among which twenty-two are in Sanskrit.
