Trailokyaprabhā (त्रैलोक्यप्रभा) is the daughter of the Daitya king Trailokyamālin and Svayaṃprabhā, as mentioned in the Kathāsaritsāgara, chapter 118. Accordingly, “... and then Svayaṃprabhā, the wife of Trailokyamālin, began austerities in order to bring about the welfare of her imprisoned husband, and in the same way her daughters, Trailokyaprabhā and Tribhuvanaprabhā, began austerities for the welfare of their father.”.
The Kathāsaritsāgara (‘ocean of streams of story’), mentioning Trailokyaprabhā , 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
