General definition (in Hinduism)Source: WikiPedia: Hinduism
Bṛhatkathāślokasaṃgraha (बृहत्कथाश्लोकसंग्रह) is Budhasvāmin's abridgement into Sanskrit verse of the now lost Great Story (Bṛhatkathā). It tells the legend of the youthful exploits of prince Naravāhanadatta (Nara-vahana-datta).
The main story narrates Naravāhanadatta’s progress culminating in his destined enthronement as the emperor of the vidyādharas (celestial beings), celestial beings with magical abilities, winning twenty-six wives along the way.
Somadeva's Kathāsaritsāgara (Ocean of Streams of Story) and Ksemendra's Brhatkathamanjari are other works said ultimately to derive from the same lost Great Story.

Bṛhatkathāślokasaṃgraha (बृहत्कथाश्लोकसंग्रह) is the name of a work by Budhasvāmi ascribed to Gupta period, according to “A Cultural note on the Kuvalayamala of Uddyotanasuri” by the late Dr. V. s. Agrawala.—The motif of the Bhāruṃḍa bird darting from the sky and catching hold of and carrying a human victim to another place otherwise difficult of access was well-known in medieval time story-literature and occurs in the Bṛhatkathāślokasaṃgraha of Budhasvāmi, ascribed to Gupta period.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as mythology, zoology, 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.
