1) Madāḍhya (मदाढ्य) is another name (synonym) for Kadamba, which is a Sanskrit name for the plant Neolamarckia cadamba (burflower-tree). This synonym was identified by Narahari in his 13th-century Rājanighaṇṭu (verse 9.97), which is an Āyurvedic medicinal thesaurus. Certain plant parts of Kūṣmāṇḍa are eaten as a vegetable (śāka), and it is therefore part of the Śākavarga group of medicinal plants, referring to the “group of vegetables/pot-herbs”.

2) Madāḍhya (मदाढ्य) is another name (synonym) for Tāla, which is a Sanskrit name for the plant Borassus flabellifer (doub palm). This synonym was identified by Narahari in his 13th-century Rājanighaṇṭu (verse 9.83), which is an Āyurvedic medicinal thesaurus.
