Hlādinī (ह्लादिनी).—A tributary of the Gaṅgā. Gaṅgā brought down by Bhagīratha to the earth first fell on Śiva’s head and thence on Bindusaras, and therefrom flowed in seven tributaries. Three tributaries, Hlādinī, Pāvanī and Nalinī flowed eastwards, Sucakṣus, Sītā and Sindhu westwards, and the seventh tributary followed Bhagīratha. The mortal remains of the sons of Sagara were flooded with its waters, and their souls attained heaven.

context information

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family. Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
