Symbolism of waters in Veda

-         Sukarma Pal Singh Tomar

(Thesis accepted by Chaudhary Charan Singh University, Meerut, 1995)

Ahi happens to be classified in vedic glossary under the synonyms for water, and also under the synonyms for stages/pada. The qualities of Ahi/serpent are similar to demon Vritra, Shambara etc. Ahi becomes a barrier for flow of waters. It becomes difficult to differentiate the qualities of demon Shambara and Ahi. Qualities of Ahi can be understood on the basis of three gradations of  qualities . In itís relatively pious form, it is called Shambara, one who fills with tranquility. In mixed form, it has been called an energized Ahi. At gross level, it is dark one.
