Name of a famous elephant and his lineage. Brahmā (Brahma) transplanted a part of the divine embryo (aṇḍa; anda) preserved in his belly into the womb of Irāvatī (Iravati). From this she gave birth to the elephants. One of the four sons of Irāvatī, the Prime Mother of the elephants, was Añjana. It is evident that he is an elephant different from Añjana, the elephant born in the line of Airāvata (Airavata), the eldest son of Irāvatī.
