Tṛṇapañcamūla (तृणपञ्चमूल) is the Sanskrit name for a group of five plants (medicinal grasses). It was originally composed by Suśruta in his Suśrutasaṃhitā sūtrasthāna XXXVIII, a classic work on Āyurveda. The name is derived from the words kaṇṭaka (‘thorn’ or ‘needle’) and pañcamūla, translating to “five roots”.

The five plants are

  1. Kuśa, 
  2. Kāśa,
  3. Nala,
  4. Darbha.
  5. Kāṇdekṣuka (Śāra).

The collection of herbs named Tṛṇapañcamūla is but one of the thirty-seven gaṇas (‘sections’) of such groups.

  3. Nala,
  4. Darbha,
  5. Kāndekshuka,

is called the Pancha-Trina.

Cases of Hæmoptysis, renal defects or of uninary diseases are found to speedily yield to the curative efficacy of the compound internally administered through the medium of cow’s milk.

This group is one of the Five Groups of Medicinal Roots (Mulam).

The Trina-panchamula is endued with the property of killing the deranged Pittam.
