General definition (in Hinduism)Source: archive.org: Vedic index of Names and Subjects
Svaja (स्वज) in the Atharvaveda and later denotes the ‘viper’. The word is explained by the commentators as svaja, ‘self-born’, but Roth, Weber, and Zimmer prefer to derive it from the root svaj, ‘clasp’, ‘encircle’. In the Maitrāyaṇī-saṃhitā the Hariṇa is said to kill the viper.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
