Ayurveda (science of life)
Veṇuyava (वेणुयव) is a Sanskrit word referring to “barley-shaped seeds of bamboo”. It is a type of “awned grain” (śūkadhānya), according to Caraka in his Carakasaṃhitā sūtrasthāna (chapter 27), a classical Āyurvedic work. The word is composed of veṇu (‘bamboo’) and yava (‘barley’). The plant Veṇuyava is part of the Śūkadhānyavarga group of medicinal plants, referring to the “group of awned grains”. Caraka defined such groups (vargas) based on the dietic value of the plant. Veṇuyava is rough and has astringent as subsidiary rasa. It is sweet, alleviates kapha and pitta and also fat, helminths (parasitic worms) and poisons. It is also strength-promoting.Source: Wisdom Library: Āyurveda and botany
