General definition (in Hinduism)

Sahakāra (सहकार)—Sanskrit word for the “Mango”. This may be a plain synonym or may denote a different species of mangoes. The sahakāra is also used interchangeably with cūta. The Ṛtusaṃhāra for instance has two verses which describe the cūta and the sahakāra’s very similar effects on travellers and there is no suggestion of a distinction between the two.
