Vṛjika (वृजिक) is another name for Vṛji or Vajji refers to one of the sixteen Mahājanapadas of the Majjhimadesa (Middle Country) of ancient India, as recorded in the Pāli Buddhist texts (detailing the geography of ancient India as it was known in to Early Buddhism).—The Vajji or Vriji clan is mentioned by Pāṇini and Kauṭilya who however, distinguishes the Vrijikas or Vajjis from the Licchavikas. Yuan Chwang also distinguishes the Fu-li-chih (Vriji) country from Fei-she-li (Vaiśālī). Vrijika or Vajji was not only the name of the confederacy, but also of one of the constituent clans. But the Vajjis, like the Licchavis, are often associated with the city of Vesālī which was not only the capital of the Licchavi clan, but also the metropolis of the entire confederacy.
