Katha (narrative stories)
Anaṅgodaya (अनङ्गोदय) is the name of an ancient king from Haṃsadvīpa, according to the Kathāsaritsāgara, chapter 73. Accordingly, as Gaṇeśa said to his Gaṇas: “... by my favour this Śrīdarśana shall be a universal emperor on the earth. Now there is an island named Haṃsadvīpa in the western sea (aparāmbhas); and in it is a king named Anaṅgodaya, and he has a lovely daughter named Anaṅgamañjarī”.
The Kathāsaritsāgara (‘ocean of streams of story’), mentioning Anaṅgodaya, is a famous Sanskrit epic story revolving around prince Naravāhanadatta and his quest to become the emperor of the vidyādharas (celestial beings). The work is said to have been an adaptation of Guṇāḍhya’s Bṛhatkathā consisting of 100,000 verses, which in turn is part of a larger work containing 700,000 verses.Source: Wisdom Library: Kathāsaritsāgara
