Bhaurika (भौरिक).—The Yādavaprakāśa equates Bhaurika with Samataṭa. Epigraphical evidence, however, shows that Samataṭa comprised the districts of Comilla, Noakhali and Sylhat. Samataṭa is a place-name without suffix and is mentioned in the Gupta inscription No. 1. The Gupta empire (r. 3rd-century CE), founded by Śrī Gupta, covered much of ancient India and embraced the Dharmic religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism.
