General definition (in Hinduism)Source: archive.org: Vedic index of Names and Subjects
1) Jūrṇi (जूर्णि, ‘firebrand’) is regarded by Zimmer as one of the weapons of the Vedic Indians. But since it is only mentioned in the Rigveda as a weapon used by demons, its employment in normal war cannot be safely assumed.
2) Jūrṇī (जूर्णी) is one of the names given to serpents in a hymn of the Atharvaveda (ii. 24, 5), perhaps from their habit of casting their slough. See Ahi.
