Fruit & Vegetable Week- Centella asiatica: Sending photos of Centella asiatica growing in our home.

Name : Centella asiatica
common name :  Brahmi
uses   :  Used as a vegetable for making chutneys, brain tonic.
Place :  Dombivli
Date  :  08.01.11


This plant is known as Brahmi, can be better clarified if we use the word “Mandukparni” as yet another plant, Bacopa monnieri is also known as Brahmi or Jal-Brahami. I was knowing it since childhood as a brain tonic, but it is used in Chutneys is something new for me. I cannot try even, becoz I haven’t found this plant in my vicinity for the last so many years.


-Yes it is known by the name Mandukparni. The chutney made from Mandukparni is very tasty and especially given to children. It is also an hair tonic.


-in bengal atleast B monnieri is called “Bhrami and C asiatica is called “Thankuni pata

It is also called Hydrocotyle asiatica.
This drug is mainly used in Nervous System and SKIN disorders. It acts as Blood Purifier.
The powder of this drug + Milk acts as Memory Booster.
Sir if you have Hydrocotyle rotundifolia photos please upload that photos. Some times H.rotundifolia is used instead of H.asiatica [ Mentioned in your Classics ].

It is used to make chutneys.


What wonderful red flowers, now I’ll have to go see my plants ….  dig in a little… to look for the flowers… always wondered but never dared.. since trying to grow them in a pot on the balcony is iffy at best…
wonder if they develop flowers in a pot…

Yes … of course I’ll add those. Delighted to. I hope others will feed names in other languages. This is what the whole internet community is begging for, not just myself. Thank you very much. I forgot, I had “thanakuni pata” for Centella is this also acceptable ? Do “sak / shak / pata” refer to leaves ?


Thanakuni: the way its pronounced… the a after n : not needed, the way its pronounced thankuni it is. Pata is leaves, used/cooked/eaten anyway one likes when buying or collecting.. shak is leaves and stems together in colloquial use… mostly used to denote the vegetable (food) like potential of the greens… 


“sak” or “shak” means branches and “pata” means leaf.

Referring to NPGS / GRIN, a query: has this plant now shifted to Araceae … also placed in: Apiaceae Hydrocotylaceae ?


This is not the plant which is called Brahmi in Hindi or Sanskrit. Brahmi is Bacopa.


Hydrocotylaceae is considered as a synonym of Araliaceae. Under the current taxonomic status Hydrocotylaceae has been demoted to a sub-family level (Hydrocotyloideae) under Araliaceae. I think the Centella asiatica has an indefinite position hence has been simultaneously placed under the Apiaceae & Araliaceae. Now there is another problem, when I check the systematic postion under Wikipedea, I was stunned to see it has been placed under Mackinlayaceae according to APG II System of classification. Mackinlayaceae (formerly Mackinlayoideae) is considered a sub-family under the order Apiales placed in the Euasterids II clade. Based on the phylogenetic tree published Tolweb (see the link below) Mackinlayaceae, Apiaceae, Araliaceae, Pittosporaceae and Myodocarpaceae are indicated by a polytomy which means the phylogentic relation between the families are not well resolved, hopefully in future better molecular studies will help in resolving the problem. I also check with bunch of papers on phylogeny of Apiaceae where it has been clearly stated that Centella has a variable position in the tree based on the different approaches used for the tree construction. I am attching one such papers (see the highlighted lines).

Tree link from Tolweb: http://tolweb.org/Public/treeImages/Apiales.png?x=-2144316443


both are brahmi
recognised by the csir for ayurvedic medicinal purposes… same / similar effects on vasculature of brain among others and memory .. they show both on their various brochures they bring to some medical conferences… I used to have some, if they are still in my library, I’ll scan them and show here…
In Bengal we call this thankuni pata and the Bacopa monieri as Bhrahmi saak..
But in the western Indian states it the other way around… where Centella asiatica is the brahmi and the other neerbrahmi….
take a look at any modern Ayurvedic botany text and you’ll see that the argument continues…


That perception is wrong. In Vedas, one name is for one plant only. But it was misinterpreted. For long people believed Centella to be Brahmi but later they found out the mistake.


Many thanks … for clarifying taxonomical status of Centella.
…, … gathering names for Centella asiatica and Bacopa monnieri was interesting as well as confusing in context of their association with the name brahmi.
Have not yet put brahmi as Sanskrit name for Centella asiatica (syn. Hydrocotyle asiatica).
Would have neither put it for Bacopa monnieri – WHY ?
because:
1) none of the Sanskrit dictionaries that I referred, have mention of Bacopa monnieri OR any of its synonyms – almost leading me to think it is not a native of our country.
2) on the contrary, brahmi is put for several plants – – – surprisingly neither Bacopa NOR Centella NOR their synonyms among them.
Hoping someone among us provides clarity about brahmi.
The phrase “In Vedas, one name is for one plant only” is not convincing me. There are countless “generic names” in Sanskrit (not sure about Veda) – that is – there are names shared (for various reasons) by several plants – brahmi is one such. Here are contents of brahmi page of Sanskrit, compiled as of now:

Many many thanks … and … for validating brahmi in Sanskrit in context of Bacopa vs Centella – will amend my notes accordingly.
Other plants – Clerodendrum indicum, Enhydra hingcha, Ruta graveolens do have brahmi as one of Sanskrit names,


In sanskrit an vedas there are slokas and sometimes these slokas were misinterpreted. For long Centella was considered as Brahmi, then after more research and translation, they realised that it was Bacopa. But due to long usage of the name, sometimes it is still used and also because some people are not aware of these scientific facts.

Similar thing happens in Botanical Nomenclature also, when we conserve a wrong name due to is long usage. Just for example, we use Orchidaceae Juss. (1789) against Orchidaceae Adanson (1763).

But at both place we should always encourage to use one name for one plant. May be from now onwards, people will start following us.


My thoughts in this context will come later when time available.
Yet, in gist, will tend to agree with … thoughts.
Here we are discussing the name Brahmi (in Sanskrit alone). And we have enough to discuss !
It may happen for several / all names in Sanskrit – if we are to go by one name – one plant.
I would go with putting Illegitimate name for against brahmi for

  • Clerodendrum siphonanthus R.Br. … synonym of Clerodendrum indicum (L.) Kuntze
  1. Enhydra hingcha
  2. Ruta graveolens L.

I will add Illegitimate name for Centella asiatica (L.) Urb. in this page … https://sites.google.com/site/indiannamesofplants/via-names/sanskrit/brahmi-brahmi, as soon as I am ready with appropriate contents for reasoning.


I am new to this group and not a botanist basically. Yet with reference to Brahmi It is Synonym for many plants due to similarity of action. Hence Illegitimate name is in-appropriate. Actual name for Hydrocotyle asiatica is mandooka Parni (Bilobed leaf) and for Bacopa is also Brahmi due to its action. To indicate same action the name is used. To indicate structure mandooka parni is used for Hydrocotyle and mathyakshi is used for bacopa. so using proper names at proper usage will solve the confusion. Not declaration of name as Illegitimate .
Sorry if there are mistakes in language.


My thinking (was) on same lines.
Will take this query later to Ayurveda discussing communities for their thoughts.


The term “Illegitimate” is applied to the botancial names for many reasons. Some may be, because the same name is available for another plant which was published earlier OR the name was not published properly following ICBN rules. So this term can be used any where logically for similar reasons. Like in case of Brahmi, the name exists for another plant.

Another way would be to use the term, “MISINTERPRETED NAME for Centella asiatica“.
Brahmi was considered as a name for Centella as Centella has similar properties. But now that name is discarded because scientists say that the name can be correctly applied only to Bacopa. That is the issue with common names. For example there is a big list of plant which are called, “NIRBISI”. But no one knows what it should be applied to exactly.

Mandook Parni doesnt mean bilobed leaf, it means Frog Leaf, pointing towards the jumping runner like habit of Centella.


Many thanks … for this better and proper wording: misinterpreted name. Will make use of this in lieu of illegitimate name.
Would like more members familiar with ayurveda to discuss brahmi as 1) misinterpreted name and 2) appropriate name for Centella asiatica.
… thus following thoughts are at least possible:
1) not knowing of the fact that the name is misinterpreted … therefore appropriate
2) knowing the fact that it is a misinterpreted name … therefore inappropriate
3) knowing the fact that it is a misinterpreted name … yet appropriate


I think there was no rule of one name one plant, in giving Sanskrit names, i think name was given mainly based on character or the action of the plant (medicinal value). Different states have different names so whats wrong in calling Bacopa and Centella as brahmi. no doubt Bacopa is more powerful brain tonic compare to Centella. at the same time its always better to call one plant with one name and one name to one plant. It is very difficult to identify the plants with slokas written in vedas. Which scientists says name brahmi is discarded for Centella?? and WHY???
In Sanskrit there are names which are applied to several plants based on character or Medicinal value of the plant…..
eg. Saptrangi, Sankhpuspi and many more…

and still i cant digest the word illegitimate for common name…. pls explain someone…


Have already agreed to not use the word illegitimate – instead would use misinterpreted.
Anticipating clarifications / thoughts that will help resolve / know whether the name brahmi is to be treated as misinterpreted for Centella asiatica OR whether the name is yet appropriate based on some reasoning – overriding the fact of misinterpretation.


Sorry to differ with respect mandooka parni. it refers to leaf not to plant property. As there are different name for properties. I don’t claim to be expert, but done some work on this line. Please see Ayurvediccommunity.com
Hence name mandooka parni is for leaf and not for property. Reading Ayurvedic sanskrit terms is a different kettle of fish.

Is this Centella asiatica or Hydrocotyle?

…, can you kindly help me with this confusion?


Please check for inflorescence.

I think it may be Centella asiatica.


There were no flowers, only leaves when the picture was taken.


Please check the leaf axis carefully, the inflorescence is too small or else please wait.

But my feel is that this could be C asiatica rather than Hydrocotyle.


Centella asiatica


I agree with … and … id: Centella asiatica.


Yes I also believe this to be Centella asiatica

Often labelled as Brahmi but it is not and actually called as Mandukparni.

Was searching the Family name and interestingly it is Mackinlayaceae

Kokan, Creeper for ID :: ARK2019-40 : 11 posts by 5 authors. Attachments (7)

Saw this creeper on the banks of a salt creek near Devgad, Coastal Kokan, MH in April 2019.
Suggestions for ID included Merremia emarginata and Centella asiatica. Requesting to please ID this creeper.

Centella asiatica ??


Merremia emarginata to me

Thanks … Are there any clinching features? Would appreciate opinion from other experts as well.

I will go for Centella asiatica as leaf texture is much different in Merremia emarginata as per images herein.


I think Centella asiatica is correct although in very moist conditions Merremia leaf texture can be very flat and less wrinkled than in the link provided.

Thank you … for concluding on the ID. Will post fresh pics after I visit the place again.

Centella asiatica And not Merremia gangetica
