Ayurveda (science of life)
Tapanīya (तपनीय) is a Sanskrit word for a species of rice (śāli) which is said to have a superior quality, according to Caraka in his Carakasaṃhitā sūtrasthāna (chapter 27), a classical Āyurvedic work.. The literal translation of the word is “golden”. The plant Tapanīya is part of the Śūkadhānyavarga group of medicinal plants, referring to the “group of awned grains”. Caraka defined such groups (vargas) based on the dietic value of the plant.Source: Wisdom Library: Āyurveda and botany

Colors are used in aṅgaracanā (painting the limbs), which forms a section of nepathya (costumes and make-up).
