Tilvaka (तिल्वक) is mentioned in the Śatapatha-brāhmaṇa as a tree (Symplocos racemosa), near which it is inauspicious to construct a grave. The adjectival derivative tailvaka, ‘made of the wood of the Tilvaka,’ is found in the Maitrāyaṇī-saṃhitā, and is employed to describe the yūpa, or sacrificial post, in the Ṣaḍviṃśa-brāhmaṇa.
