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.
Kavya (काव्य, kavya) refers to Sanskrit poetry, a popular ancient Indian tradition of literature. There have been many Sanskrit poets over the ages, hailing from ancient India and beyond. This topic includes mahakavya, or ‘epic poetry’ and natya, or ‘dramatic poetry’.

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].
