Gulmaka (गुल्मक).—The uncle of Guṇāḍhya. Guṇāḍhya is the author of the famous book 'Bṛhatkathā'. In the city of Supratiṣṭhita there was a brahmin named Somaśarmā who had three children, namely, Vatsa, Gulmaka and Śrutārtha. Guṇāḍhya was the son of Śrutārtha (Taraṅga 6, Kathāpiṭhalaṃbaka, Kathāsaritsāgara).
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.
