Karañjanilayā (करञ्जनिलया).—Analā, the mother of all trees. She was the daughter of Dakṣa and the wife of Kaśyapa. She is known as Vīrudhā also. That was how Vīrut became a synonym of tree. It is believed that Analā stays in the tree Karañja. To obtain blessings from Analā people worship the Karañja tree. (Ślokas 35 to 36, Chapter 230, Vana Parva).
