In Hinduism

Ayurveda (science of life)

1) Vātāri (वातारि) is another name for Bhāraṅgī, which is a Sanskrit word referring to Clerodendrum serratum (beetle killer). It is classified as a medicinal plant in the system of Āyurveda (science of Indian medicine) and is used throughout literature such as the Suśrutasaṃhita and the Carakasaṃhitā. The synonym was identified in the Rājanighaṇṭu (verses 5.149-150), which is a 13th-century medicinal thesaurus.

2) Vātāri (वातारि) is another name (synonym) for Śvetairaṇḍa: one of the three varieties of Eraṇḍa, which is a Sanskrit name representing Ricinus communis (castor-oil-plant). This synonym was identified by Narahari in his 13th-century Rājanighaṇṭu (verses 8.55-57), which is an Āyurvedic medicinal thesaurus. Certain plant parts of Eraṇḍa are eaten as a vegetable (śāka), and it is therefore part of the Śākavarga group of medicinal plants, referring to the “group of vegetables/pot-herbs”.

Vātāri (वातारि) is another name for Putradātrī, an unidentified medicinal plant, according to verse 3.143-144 of the 13th-century Raj Nighantu or Rājanighaṇṭu. The third chapter (guḍūcyādi-varga) of this book contains climbers and creepers (vīrudh). Putradātrī is different from Putradā, described by Narhari. Putradātrī is different from Putrañjīva (Putranjiva roxburghii) too though the actions appear mostly similar. Similarly, it can’t be Lakṣamaṇā either, as the latter has been described separatly by Narhari in chapter 4 along with Śatāhvādi-varga. Together with the names Vātāri and Putradātrī, there are a total of eight Sanskrit synonyms identified for this plant.
