Pāga (पाग) refers to one of the eight trees (vṛkṣa) of the Medinīcakra, according to the 10th century Ḍākārṇava chapter 15. Accordingly, the medinīcakra refers to one of the three divisions of the dharma-puṭa (‘dharma layer’), situated in the Herukamaṇḍala. Pāga is associated with the charnel ground (śmaśāna) named Māraṇa; with the female world-guardian (lokapālinī) named Indrī; with a female serpent (nāginī) and with a female cloud (meghinī).
