Bhūtivarman (भूतिवर्मन्) is the name of a rākṣasa and friend of Kāṇabhūti, a piśāca residing in the Vindhya forest, according to the Kathāsaritsāgara, chapter 7. Kāṇabhūti thus said, accordingly, “I have a friend, a Rākṣasa of the name of Bhūtivarman, who possesses heavenly insight, and I went to a garden in Ujjayinī, where he resides”.
