Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Taraṅgiṇī (तरङ्गिणी).—A river flows through the Uttarakuru country and falls into the north ocean.*
- * Vāyu-purāṇa 42. 76-7.
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.
Katha (narrative stories)
Taraṅgiṇī (तरङ्गिणी) is the name of a river (nadī) situated on the other side of the eastern ocean (pūrvāmbudhi), according to the Kathāsaritsāgara, chapter 72. Accordingly, as the robber Siṃhavikrama reflected: “... and at present the hermit Śveta is on the other side of the eastern ocean, in a grove of ascetics beyond the River Taraṅgiṇī. That grove cannot be invaded by Death, so I will take you and place you there”.
The Kathāsaritsāgara (‘ocean of streams of story’), mentioning Taraṅgiṇī, 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.Source: Wisdom Library: Kathāsaritsāgara
Katha (कथा, kathā) refers to narrative Sanskrit literature often inspired from epic legendry (itihasa) and poetry (mahākāvya). Some Kathas reflect socio-political instructions for the King while others remind the reader of important historical event and exploits of the Gods, Heroes and Sages.
Nyaya (school of philosophy)
Taraṅgiṇī (तरङ्गिणी), written by Rāmarudra Bhaṭṭācārya, is a commentary on the Bhāṣāpariccheda by Viśvanātha Nyāyapañcānana. The Bhāṣāpariccheda belongs to the syncretic school of Nyāya-Vaiśeṣika. It is known as Kārikāvalī also, on which the author himself has written a commentary called Nyāyasiddhāntamuktāvalī. This work of Viśvanātha has been commented upon by many traditional and modern scholars [viz., the Taraṅgiṇī].Source: Shodhganga: A study of Nyāya-vaiśeṣika categories
Nyaya (न्याय, nyaya) refers to a school of Hindu philosophy (astika), drawing its subject-matter from the Upanishads. The Nyaya philosophy is known for its theories on logic, methodology and epistemology, however, it is closely related with Vaisheshika in terms of metaphysics.
