General definition (in Hinduism)

Tejana (तेजन) denotes in the Rigveda a rod or staff of reed used for measuring a field. In the Atharvaveda the sense of ‘bamboo’ is found twice, the bamboo being specified in the second passage as ‘of the spring’ (vāsantika); more particularly it denotes the shaft of an arrow, a sense often found in later Vedic texts.
