Rudantī (रुदन्ती) is the Sanskrit name for a medicinal plant identified with two possibly species verse, according to verse 5.60-62 of the 13th-century Raj Nighantu or Rājanighaṇṭu. Note: Chopra and Bāpālāl identify Rudantī with Cressa cretica Linn. having support from Nāḍkarṇī, while P.V.S. identifies Rudantī with Capparis moonii.
Rudantī is mentioned as having seven synonyms: Sravattoyā, Sañjīvanī, Amṛtasravā, Romāñcikā, Mahāmāṃsī, Caṇapatrī and Sudhāsravā.
Properties and characteristics: “Rudantī is pungent (kaṭu), bitter (tikta) and hot (uṣṇa). It quells tuberculosis and worms. It cures bleeding disorders (raktapitta), asthma and diseases due to kapha. It is rejuvenating (rasāyanī) and cures obstinate urinary disorders including diabeties [diabetes?] (meha).—The shrub and leaves of Rudantī are just like that of gram and are sour in taste. In śiśira-ṛtu drops of water come out of it, giving an impression of tears due to weeping, so it is called Rudantikā”.

Rudantī (रुदन्ती) refers to one of the twenty-four Ḍākinīs positioned at the padma (lotus) in the middle of the Herukamaṇḍala, according to the 10th century Ḍākārṇava chapter 15. Accordingly, between the west and south (of the heruka-maṇḍala) are six Ḍākinīs who are half red and half yellow in color. They [viz., Rudantī] are headed by the major four Ḍākinīs of the Cakrasaṃvara tradition. They stand in the Pratyālīḍha posture and, except for the body posture, their physical features and objects that they hold are the same as Vajravārāhīs.
