In Hinduism

Ayurveda (science of life)

Tripuṭā (त्रिपुटा) is another name for Karṇasphoṭā, a medicinal plant possibly identified with Cardiospermum halicacabum (balloon plant) from the Sapindaceae or “soapberry” family of flowering plants, according to verse 3.137-138 of the 13th-century Raj Nighantu or Rājanighaṇṭu. The third chapter (guḍūcyādi-varga) of this book contains climbers and creepers (vīrudh).  Karṇasphoṭā is not mentioned by Dhanvantari (in his Nighaṇṭu); however Chopra identifies it as Cardiospermum halicacabum Linn.; yet, the properties mentioned by chopra do not tally with the text. Together with the names Tripuṭā and Karṇasphoṭā, there are a total of eight Sanskrit synonyms identified for this plant.
