29. ūrmi: waves. Feminine as well as masculine. It is derived as ṛ + mi by Uṇādi Sūtra “arterudādeśaśca”. “The flag flew as if the wave of the heavenly ganges” (Ra.Va. 12.54). Light, speed, destruction, fold of cloth, feeling and sport. (medinī). Intensity (hemacandra). This has been stated in the bhāgavata ṭīkā: “sorrow, love, oldage, death, hunger and thirst are six intensities.” “The longings are of six types: Hunger, thirst, longings of the mind and self, sorrow, love, old age and death of the body” The vaijayantī states that it also stands for six types of a horse’s movement. “The horses which are ready and ready to run, have great speed and that is known as ūrmi”. Māgha uses it the bosoms with the pace of ūrmi.
