ouroborindra

ouroborindra

Does anyone of you happen to know what the word "ouroborindra" (chanted by Wither and Straik when worshiping the head in THS) means or where it comes from? I've already tried to find out but without much success. Of course the first thing that comes to mind is that it is in some way related to Eddison's Worm Ouroboros, but I couldn't really find a connection. If it was ouroborandra it could be Greek and mean something like "a man that swallows himself from the back" but that doesn't help too much either.
Any suggestions?
Thanks!

It sounds like something from the language of the Malacandrians. Perhaps it is some word from their vocabulary, which has been communicated by Devine?

I suspect it was just meant to be an alien and creepy-sounding word.

Oh, that's easy. It's Gaelic, meaning covered in small blisters.

Either that, or a mineral consisting of magnesium iron silicate.

Or a healthy reddish color often associated with outdoor life.

(giggle) I thought it was a nonsense phrase made to show how ridiculous & pathetic they had become, especially when the chant ended not with alleluia or "amen" but "ba - ba- hee." It sounded like something from a rock & roll song.

Or else from the movie "Babe" (wasn't the code phrase for the sheep something like "ouroborindra ba-ba-hee"? Puts a whole new eerie light on the movie, eh?:-)

And then it seemed to him that as in his dream in the house of Bombadil, the grey rain-curtain turned all to silver glass and was rolled back, and he beheld white shores and beyond them a fair green country under a swift sunrise.

I thought the code for the sheep was "(something)Ram Ewe" I'd have to watch the movie again.

Okay, I've waited almost a whole day for somebody else to know this. Why do I know that it is Baa Ram Ewe? So sad. I haven't even seen either of the movies. Oh great--I know there are two of them. I swear, pop culture just seeps into me somehow.
