[Ayodhadhaumya in Purana glossaries]

1) Ayodhadhaumya (अयोधधौम्य).—(Āyodhadhaumya). Āpodadhaumya, Apodadhaumya, Dhaumya. A great Muni (sage). He had three disciples, Āruṇi, Upamanyu and Veda. Disciple Āruṇi. He belonged to Pāñcāla, and once his guru deputed him to construct embankments in the field. But, his attempts to construct embankments did not succeed. Finally he lay himself in the field where the embankment was required, and then the flow of water stopped. The guru enquired about Āruṇi, who was thus lying in the field. Then only he knew the reason for Āruṇi’s absence. The guru went to the field and called Āruṇi. Then the embankment burst open and Āruṇi came out, and because of that Āruṇi got the name Uddālaka. (Mahābhārata, Chapter 3, Verses 21-33). (See full article at Story of Ayodhadhaumya from the Puranic encyclopaedia by Vettam Mani)
