Tālavṛnta (तालवृन्त) refers to “palmyra-stalk fan”, mentioned in verse 3.39 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Accordingly, “from him whose mind is at ease, (who is) moist with sandal [...]—(from him) wet-cloth, Palmyra-stalk [viz., tālavṛnta], large lotus-leaf, and yak-tail fans (which), gently raised, (are) showering water and offering cool wind; [...]”.
Note: Tālavṛnta (“palmyra-stalk fan”) has been translated tā-lai bsil-yab (“fan of palmyra palm”), which is in keeping with Candranandana’s and Hemādri’s interpretation. According to another explanation (followed by Aruṇadatta & Indu and also recorded by Candranandana), the term is used metaphorically for “fans made of the tail-feathers etc. of peacocks (and) having the form of palmyra-stalks” (mayūrapicchādikṛtāni tālavṛntākṛtīni vyajanāni). For tā-la CD write ta-la again; cf. v. 33.
