Madhu (Sanskrit: Madhu) is a word used in several Indo-Aryan languages that means honey or sweet. It is ultimately derived from proto-Indo-European *medhu, hence the English Met. Madhu (मधु) refers to “honey” and represents one of the objects offered to the nine planets (navagraha), according to the grahaśānti section (cf. grahayajña) of the Yājñavalkyasmṛti (1,295-309), which is preceded by the vināyakakalpa section (1,271-294), which prescribes a rite to be offered to Vināyaka. [Verses 302-303: Will Be Burned] – These two verses prescribe various to burn for grahas with offerings of honey [i.e.
madhu], ghee, dadhi, and milk. It is interesting to note that some of the mentioned here (e.g. Parāśa, Khadira, Pippala and Śamī) are also used in suśrutasaṃhitā in the context (Uttaratantra chapters 27-37) of curing diseases caused by grahas, which in this case are not planetary. [Verses 304-305: Boiled rice (odana) to offer to grahas] Note: Madhu, equated by commentators with mārdvīka (“wine”), has been interpreted as sbraṅ-rtsi chaṅ – “honey spirit, mead” (for which verse 22 is sbraṅ-chaṅ), while ariṣṭa (“arista liquor”) has not been translated. The latter seems to be little known in Tibet because it has been neglected before (see v. 22). Again, it can be said that ariṣṭa is not absent, but is represented by chaṅ (as in 5.70), while madhu was reproduced by sbraṅ-rtsi in accordance with its literal meaning “honey”. But the whole construction of the sentence goes against such a formalistic interpretation, and the fact that sbraṅ-rtsi should not be separated from chaṅ is also indicated by the variant sbraṅ-rtsi-can (“supplied with honey”) in CD, which can be explained as a designation for any type of honey drink.
Madhu (मधु) – Honey was used with food by the ṚGvedian Indians. The Śatapatha-brāhmaṇa mentions honey as the lifeblood of heaven. He even calls it a form of soma and shows its use in ritual. The Madhuparka offered to guests is mentioned in the Atharva Veda. Kauṭilya mentions it repeatedly, even in parables. .
