Kavya (poetry)Source: Wisdomlib Libary: Kathā
Uccaiḥśravā (उच्चैःश्रवा) is the name of a mare that was offered by the Vanavīra to Malayavāhana (king of Pratiṣṭhāna), according to the seventh Ucchvāsa of the Udayasundarīkathā. Accordingly, Uccaiḥśravā fell from the sky on Durva grass and was described as “a good carrier of Brahmā and a physical form of wind”. Vanavīra told the king that the mare was “created by Brahmā from the seven horses of the sun’s chariot”.
Uccaiḥśravā eventually transformed in Tārāvalī, a close friend of Udayasundarī, when she and Malayavāhana went looking for her after chasing a monkey to a mountain.
The Udayasundarīkathā is a Sanskrit epic tale written by Soḍḍhala in the early 11th century, revolving around the Nāga princess Udayasundarī and Malayavāhana (king of Pratiṣṭhāna).
