Source: Personal and geographical names in the Gupta inscriptions

Doṣībhoga (दोषीभोग) or Doṣībhogapuṣkariṇī is a place-name classified as a puṣkariṇī and mentioned in the Gupta inscription No. 52. 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. Doṣī may stand for Sanskrit jyotiṣi meaning astrologer. Bhoga may be a personal name, thus the name may stand for a pond of the astrologer named Bhoga. Another possibility is that bhoga signifies enjoyment. In that case the expression will signify a pond in the possession of an astrologer.
