Baṭu (बटु).—(VAṬU). A brahmin who reads the Gītā daily. Because in life he held fast to duty he was carried to heaven after death. The dead body was eaten away by birds and the bony skeleton remained. When rains started the empty skull was filled with water and a sinner passing that way touched the skull and the sinner got salvation.
