ऊष्मन् [ sh-mn ]
- m. heat; ardour; vapour; breathing (grammatical designation of all the sibilants, h, and anusvra).

UKT 140123: Since the Skt-Dev speakers could not pronounce the thibilant /θ/ {a.}, and has also grouped it in the same class as  /ʃ/ {sha.} & /s/ {Sa.}, we must understand 'sibilants' mentioned above would include all three fricatives /ʃ/ , /s/ & /θ/. There are four things we must remember as well:
#1. MLC transliteration {rha.} for /ʃ/ is utterly unsuitable from phonetic point of view, but that MLC alternate transliteration {hya.} though not fully representative, is still tenable.
#2. The palatal plosive-stops of row#2 of the akshara table are not covered by the term 'sibilants'.
#3. The phoneme /h/ is not aspirate as the Europeans have imagined.
#4. The anusvra which I have identified to be {::tn} 'dot-above', is just a devise to make the Skt-Dev speakers able to pronounce the r1c5 /ŋ/ , r2c5 /ɲ/ , r3c5 /ɳ/ phonemes. These phonemes are not nasals in all cases, particularly r1c5 /ŋ/ , r2c5 /ɲ/. In Bur-Myan, there is also a 'dot-below' to indicate a very short creak.

 

p056-1c3-b06

ऊष्मप [ shma-pa ]
- a. imbibing only the steam of food; m. a class of Ma'nes.

UKT 140123: The above "steam of food", is misleading, since the Ma'nes, like the dvas and other inhabitants of the sky (space) are offered burnt offerings as well. I would use the term "odour of food".

UKT notes

Aurva Rishi

-- UKT 140122: 

It sometimes happen that I could not get the info about a word, or phrase from Wikipedia. This word is such a case. In such a case I first find the English transliteration is reasonable by going after the orthography and the meaning.  The following is from SpkSkt
और्व aurva - m. submarine fire. n. fossil salt -- SpkSkt

From: http://www.mythfolklore.net/india/encyclopedia/aurva.htm 140122
The above website gives its source as Dowson's "Classical Dictionary of Hindu Mythology"
Dowson, John (1820-1881). A classical dictionary of Hindu mythology and religion, geography, history, and literature. London: Trbner, 1879 [Reprint, London: Routledge, 1979].

AURVA.
-- A Rishi, son of Urva and grandson of Bhrigu. He is described in the Mahabharata as born of the sage Chyavana by his wife Arushi. From his race he is called Bhargava.

The Mahabharata relates that a king named Kritavirya was very liberal to his priests of the race of Bhrigu, and that they grew rich upon his munificence. After his death, his descendants, who had fallen into poverty, begged help from the Bhrigus, and met with no liberal response. Some of them buried their money, and when this was discovered the impoverished Kshatriyas were so exasperated that they slew all the Bhrigus down to the children in the womb. One woman concealed her unborn child in her thigh, and the Kshatriyas being informed of this, sought the child to kill it, but the child "issued forth from its mother's thigh with lustre and blinded the persecutors. From being produced from the thigh (uru), the child received the name of Aurva.
