Parṇa (पर्ण) refers to the “leaves” of a tree or plant, as mentioned in a list of seven synonyms, according to the second chapter (dharaṇyādi-varga) of the 13th-century Raj Nighantu or Rājanighaṇṭu (an Ayurvedic encyclopedia). The Dharaṇyādi-varga covers the lands, soil, mountains, jungles and vegetation’s relations between trees [viz., Parṇa] and plants and substances, with their various kinds.Source: archive.org: Vagbhata’s Ashtanga Hridaya Samhita (first 5 chapters)
