ब्राह्मी च पिच्छिलायुष्या संशन्मादविनाशनी। वयसःस्थापनी मेधावाक्स्वरपित्तदा परम् ।।

तिक्ता हृद्या कटुः पाके श्वासश्लेष्मनिर्ऋतनी। मंडूकी तद्गुणान्यूना वह्निकृन्नाति पित्तला ।।


(Shodal Nighantu reference)


ब्राह्मी कपोतवता च सोमवल्ली सरस्वती। मण्डूकपर्णी माण्डूकी त्वाष्ट्री दिव्या महौषधी ।।

ब्राह्मी हिमासरा तिक्ता लघुर्मेध्या च शीतला। कषाया मधुरा स्वादुपाकाऽऽयुष्या रसायनी ।।

स्वर्या स्मृतिप्रदा कुष्ठपाण्डुमेहास्रकासजित् । विषशोथज्वरहरी तद्वन्मण्डूकपर्णिनी ।।


(Bhava Prakasa reference)


ब्राह्मी सरस्वती सौम्या सुरश्रेष्ठा सुवर्चला। कपोतवेगा वैधात्री दिव्यतेजा महौषधी ।।

स्वायंभुवी सोमलता सुरेज्या बह्मकन्यका। मण्डूकमाता मत्स्याक्षी मण्डूकी सुरसा तथा ।

मध्या वीरा भारती च वरा च परमेष्ठिनी। दिव्या च शारदी चेति ज्ञेयाऽवर्णकरावया ॥

ब्राह्मी हिमा कषाया च तिक्ता वातास्रपित्तजित् । बुद्धिं प्रज्ञां च मेधा च कुर्यादायुष्यवर्धनी ।।

(Raj Nighantu reference)
