Māricacūrṇa (मारिचचूर्ण) refers to “powdered pepper” (used in the treatment of Hawks), according to the Śyainika-śāstra: a Sanskrit treatise dealing with the divisions and benefits of Hunting and Hawking, written by Rājā Rudradeva (or Candradeva) in possibly the 13th century.—Accordingly, [while discussing the treatment of hawks]: “[...] If the disease is the effect of the morbid condition of the phlegm, powdered pepper (māricacūrṇa) [māricaṃ cūrṇaṃ] is to be first administered as a snuff, and then meat mixed with the powdered bark of Morunga quilandina, is to be given. The drink should be warm water; musk may also be given to cure its symptoms. [...]”.
