Iṣīkā : f.: A reed or a straw, instead of an arrow, used as a missile by Aśvatthāman; the astra employed on it not named, but apparently identical with Brahmaśiras (10. 12. 4, 40).

Described as a ‘powerful missile’ (paramāstra) 10. 13. 17; 10. 15. 12, 23, 33; 10. 16. 8; ‘heavenly’ (divya) 10. 15. 16, 25; ‘unparalleled’ (durāsada) 10. 15. 16; ‘fierce’ (ghora) 10. 15. 11; ‘unfailing’ (amogha) 10. 15. 31; (10. 16. 8); ‘producing big flames and surrounded by a circle of lustre’ (mahājvālaṁ tejomaṇḍalasaṁvṛtam) 10. 14. 8; when challenged by Bhīma, who was followed by Arjuna and Yudhiṣṭhira in a chariot, driven by Kṛṣṇa, Aśvatthāman took a reed (iṣīkā) in the left hand (saveyna pāṇinā) and thought of the heavenly missile, recited mantras on it to imbibe it with the lustre of fire (vahnitejo 'numantrya vai 10. 15. 16), and released it for the destruction of the Pāṇḍavas (apāṇḍavāya 10. 13. 18; 10. 15. 16); fire broke out from the reed which threatened to burn the three worlds 10. 13. 15-20; to counter it, Arjuna released Brahmaśiras (10. 15. 23) saying ‘let the missile be pacified by missile’ (astram astreṇa śāmyatām) 10. 14. 2-6; 10. 15. 20; (however, according to 1. 1. 155 Arjuna said ‘svasti’ while releasing his missile); apprehending great danger to the creatures from the fire released by the two missiles, Nārada and Kṛṣṇa Dvaipāyana stood between them and appealed to the two heroes to withdraw their missiles since they were never used by any one before 10. 14. 7-16; accordingly, Arjuna withdrew it (10. 15. 1, 5, 10), but Aśvatthāman could not withdraw it (10. 15. 11) and he admitted to the sages his inability to follow their advice 10. 15. 15; he said the missile must achieve its purpose and destroy all the sons of Pāṇḍu 10. 15. 17; but Vyāsa pointed out that if Aśvatthāman's paramāstra were to subdue Arjuna's Brahmaśiras there would be no rain in the land for twelve years; (however, according to 1. 1. 155 one astra was pacified by the other astram astreṇa śāntam); Kṛṣṇa Dvaipāyana therefore asked again Aśvatthāman to withdraw his missile and save the nation and the Pāṇḍavas 10. 15. 25-26; but since the missile could not be totally withdrawn, Aśvatthāman suggested that the missile should fall, not on the Pāṇḍavas, but on their foetus (iṣīkā nipatiṣyati/garbheṣu pāṇḍaveyānām 10. 15. 31); when permitted by Vyāsa to do that, Aśvatthāman directed the missile to the foetus 10. 15. 32-33; it was then destined to hit the foetus in the womb of Uttarā 10. 16. 7-8 [See Aiṣikāstra and Brahmaśiras ].

Iṣīkā, ‘a stalk of reed grass,’ occurs frequently from the Atharvaveda[१] onwards, often as an emblem of fragility. In the Śāṅkhāyana Āraṇyaka[२] it seems to denote the pin fixed in the bar of a pen to keep cattle in (argaleṣīke, ‘bolt and pin’). A basket (śūrpa) of Iṣīkā is referred to in the Śatapatha Brāhmaṇa.[३]
