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.
