Khyāti (ख्याति).—One of the seven major rivers situated in Krauñcadvīpa, according to the Varāhapurāṇa chapter 88. It is also known by the name Kṣiprodā. Krauñcadvīpa is one of the seven islands (dvīpa), ruled over by Jyotiṣmān, one of the ten sons of Priyavrata, who is the son of Svāyambhuva Manu, who was created by Brahmā, who was in turn created by Nārāyaṇa, the unknowable all-pervasive primordial being.

The Varāhapurāṇa is categorised as a Mahāpurāṇa, and was originally composed of 24,000 metrical verses, possibly originating from before the 10th century. It is composed of two parts and Sūta is the main narrator.

1) Khyāti (ख्याति) is one of the twenty-four daughters of Dakṣa by Prasūti: one of the three daughters of Svāyambhuvamanu and Śatarūpā, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.1.16:—“Dakṣa begot twenty-four daughters. The eleven younger daughters were [Khyāti,...]. The great aspirants [Bhṛgu] and others took the hands of these famous daughters (e.g., Bhṛgu married Khyāti). Thereupon the entire universe consisting of three worlds, mobile and immobile was filled (with progeny). Thus according to their own actions and at the bidding of Śiva innumerable famous Brahmins were born out of the various living beings”.

2) Khyāti (ख्याति) refers to “fame” (i.e., one who is famous), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.8.—Accordingly, Nārada said to Himavat:—“[..] By propitating Śiva with her penance she will acquire the lustre of gold and will be known as Svarṇagaun. Your daughter will be as fair-complexioned as lightning. This girl will be famous [i.e., khyāti] in the name of Gaurī, She will deserve the respect of Viṣṇu, Brahmā and the other Gods. O excellent mountain, you shall not give her to anyone else. This is a secret of the gods. This shall not be revealed to any one else”.
