Uraṇa (उरण) is a Sanskrit word referring to the “wild sheep” (ram). The meat of this animal is part of the māṃsavarga (‘group of flesh’), which is used throughout Ayurvedic literature. The animal Uraṇa is part of the sub-group named Jāṅgalamṛga, refering to “animals living in forests”. It was classified by Caraka in his Carakasaṃhitā sūtrasthāna (chapter 27), a classical Ayurvedic work. Caraka defined such groups (vargas) based on the dietic properties of the substance.
Āyurveda (आयुर्वेद, ayurveda) is a branch of Indian science dealing with medicine, herbalism, taxology, anatomy, surgery, alchemy and related topics. Traditional practice of Āyurveda in ancient India dates back to at least the first millenium BC. Literature is commonly written in Sanskrit using various poetic metres.

Uraṇa is the name of a village mentioned in the “Rānvaḍ stone inscription of Someśvara”. Uraṇa still retains its ancient name and lies 10 miles from Panvēl in the Kolābā District. Rānvaḍ, where the inscribed stone was found, is near Uraṇ.
This stone inscription (menitoning Uraṇa) was found at Rānvaḍ near Uraṇ in the Kolābā District. It records the grant by the King (Rāula) of the proceeds of some fields in Uraṇa-Paḍivase (i.e. Padivase near Uraṇ), on the occasion of a Sūrya-parvan (a holy occasion sacred to the Sun). It is dated on the fifteenth tithi of the dark fortnight of Caitra in the Śaka year 1181, the cyclic year being Siddhārtha.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
