Bharga (भर्ग) or Bhagga was an ancient state dependent of Vatsa or Vaṃsa: one of the sixteen Mahājanapadas of the Majjhimadesa (Middle Country) of ancient India, as recorded in the Pāli Buddhist texts (detailing the geography of ancient India as it was known in to Early Buddhism).—The kingdom of the Vaṃsas or Vatsas is mentioned in the Aṅguttara Nikāya as one of the sixteen great countries of India. The Bhagga (i.e. Bharga) state of Suṃsumāragiri was a dependency of the Vatsa kingdom (Jātaka No. 353). This is confirmed by the Mahābhārata and the Harivaṇśa which testify to the close association of these two realms.Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: Indian Epigraphical Glossary
