In the Vedic usage, another meaning of the term āgrayaṇa (agrayana) is also found. The āgrayaṇa -sthālī (agrayana-sthali,; container of agrayana) is a container for keeping somarasa (the nectre-like drink prepared from a vine called soma). The soma-liquor is divided in three portions, and two of these portions are kept in other two containers. The rest of the soma-liquor remains in the first container, so it is called the āgrayaṇa-sthālī.
