Consider the following Shloka from Mahabharata
तत्र चासीद अमेयात्मा विद्युद अग्निसमप्रभः
भौवनः सुमहावीर्यः सॊमस्य परिरक्षिता (Adi Parva chapter 28)
tatra cāsīd ameyātmā vidyud agnisamaprabhaḥ
bhauvanaḥ sumahāvīryaḥ somasya parirakṣitā
The translation contains the word electric for विद्युद
And amongst those that guarded the Soma was Brahmana (the celestial architect), of measureless might, effulgent as the electric fire and of great energy.
What is meant by विद्युद here? Does it refers to electrifying (intensive) fire or any other meaning?
