Ojā (ओजा).—(= Pali id.; derived by Childers and Senart from Sanskrit ūrj, by PTSD from ojas, which seems more plausible), food: Mv i.210.19 = ii.14.20 (prose) (lābhinī bhavati divyānāṃ gandhānāṃ…mālyānāṃ…vilepanānāṃ) di- vyānāṃ ojānām; ii.131.3 (and 6) (prose) (vayaṃ te roma- kūpa- [mss. °pe] vivarāntareṣu) divyām ojām adhyohari- ṣyāmaḥ; see s.v. adhyoharati (used in Pali, like its noun ajjhohāra, of food). It seems clear that in BHS, at least, ojā means simply food, not essence or the like.Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: Edgerton Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit Dictionary
