Opaśa is a word of somewhat doubtful sense, occurring in the Rigveda,[१] the Atharvaveda,[२] and occasionally later.[३] It probably means a ‘plait’ as used in dressing the hair, especially of women,[४] but apparently, in earlier times,[५] of men also. The goddess Sinīvālī is called svaupaśā,[६] an epithet of doubtful sense, from which Zimmer[७] conjectures that the wearing of false plaits of hair was not unknown in Vedic times. What was the difference between the braic referred to in the epithets pṛthu ṣṭuka,[८] ‘having broad braids,’ and viṣita-ṣṭuka,[९] ‘having loosened braids,’ and the Opaśa cannot be made out from the evidence available. Geldner[१०] thinks that the original sense was ‘horn,’ and that when the word applies to Indra[११] it means ‘diadem.’

    viii. 14, 5;
    ix. 71. 1.
  2. vi. 138, 1. 2;
    ix. 3, 8, where it is applied metaphorically in describing the roof of a house.
