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.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
