Hatakeshana in Katha glossary... « previous · [H] · next »

Hāṭakeśāna (हाटकेशान) is an epithet of Śiva, according to the Kathāsaritsāgara, chapter 73. Accordingly, as Bhūrivasu said to king Bhūnandana: “... for I am a Brāhman named Bhūrivasu, the son of a sacrificing Brāhman of the Deccan, named Yajuḥ, and I am a chief among magicians. My father communicated his knowledge to me, and I learned from a treatise on Pātāla the proper charms and ceremonies for propitiating Hāṭakeśāna”.

The Kathāsaritsāgara (‘ocean of streams of story’), mentioning Hāṭakeśāna, is a famous Sanskrit epic story revolving around prince Naravāhanadatta and his quest to become the emperor of the vidyādharas (celestial beings). The work is said to have been an adaptation of Guṇāḍhya’s Bṛhatkathā consisting of 100,000 verses, which in turn is part of a larger work containing 700,000 verses.
