Vādī (वादी).—A son of emperor Pṛthu. Pṛthu had two righteous sons called Antardhāna and Vādī. A son named Havirdhāna was born to Antardhāna by Śikhandinī. Dhiṣaṇā born in the dynasty of Agni became the wife of Havirdhāna. Six sons named Prācīnabarhis, Śukra, Gaya, Kṛṣṇa, Vraja and Ajina were born to the couple. (Viṣṇu Purāṇa, Aṃśa 1, Chapter 14).

Vādin (वादिन्) (Cf. Vādinī) refers to “one who repeats (the name of lord Śiva)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.30 (“The Celebration of Pārvatī’s Return”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “O dear, listen with pleasure to what happened thereafter when Śiva returned to His place. I shall mention it, remembering Śiva. Accompanied by her maids and assuming meaningful dress and features she returned to her father’s house repeating (vādinī) the name of lord Śiva. On hearing that Pārvatī was returning, Menā and Himavat excessively delighted went ahead seated in a divine vehicle. [...]”.

Vādin (वादिन्, “sonant”) refers to one of the four classes of musical notes (svara), according to the Nāṭyaśāstrahapter chapter 28. It can also be spelled like vādī. Accordingly, “that which is an aṃśa-svara (‘chief-note’) anywhere, will in this connexion, be called there Sonant (vādin)”. The sonant note is the melodic centre of the melody.

Vādī (वादी, “sonant”).—“The sonant (vādī) is the king of notes”. (Saṅgītamakaranda 2.7) Besides the tonic (the Sa), always fixed, each rāga has a predominant note from which all variations begin and in which they end: it is always accentuated and bears long pauses. This main note is called vādī (that which speaks). The expression of the vādī is the predominant expression of the rāga: itscharacter determines the mood.

“The chief element in which the power lies of bringing out a particular mood, a rāga, is the sonant (vādī)”. (Saṅgītadarpaṇa 1.68)

“The sonant (vādī) is the note most used while playing; itis the king (of the melody)”. (Rāgavibodha 1.37) The commentary on the Rāgavibodha adds: “the sonant (vādī), being constantly heard, dominates the melody. Because it explains and heralds the mode, it is called vādī (that which speaks)”.

Vāḍī (वाडी) refers to an “administrative designation”.—In the Kanarese areas and certain contiguous tracts we meet with the term vāḍī (e.g. Gaṅga-vāḍī, Noḷamba-vāḍī, Naḷa-vāḍī, Māsa-vāḍī, Sinda-vāḍī).

Vadi or Padi is one of the terms designating an ‘administrative division’ used in the inscriptions of Andhra Pradesh.—Padi is variously understood as a military camp, hamlet, quarters and district. In the sense of a large district or territory this appellation was employed by the Cholas. But at the time of the Early Pallavas padi was meant for a small division like Nadattapati. For the Cholas Perumbanapadi was an extensive sub-division of Jayangondasola-mandalam. The appellation vadi seems to be a variant of padi. Some of the known vadi divisons, also under the Cholas, are Kandravadi, Noyyana-vadi, Odda-vadi and natavadi.
