Bhīmaniḥsvana (भीमनिःस्वन) is the name of a rākṣasa chief, presiding over Rasātala, according to the Parākhyatantra 5.44-45. Rasātala refers to one of the seven pātālas (‘subterranean paradise’). The word pātāla in this tantra refers to subterranean paradises for seekers of otherworldly pleasures and each the seven pātālas is occupied by a regent of the daityas, nāgas and rākṣasas.
