Vipula, aka: Vipulā; 6 Definition(s)
Vipula (विपुल) is the name of a mountain on the eastern side of mount Meru, according to the Varāhapurāṇa chapter 75. Meru is one of the seven mountains located in Jambūdvīpa, which is ruled over by Āgnīdhra, a grandson of Svāyambhuva Manu, who was created by Brahmā, who was in turn created by Nārāyaṇa, the unknowable all-pervasive primordial being. On the peak of mount Vipula stands a Aśvatta tree hosting various devas, asuras and apsaras. The lake in this direction is called Asitoda around which are situated thirteen mountains.
The Varāhapurāṇa is categorised as a Mahāpurāṇa, and was originally composed of 24,000 metrical verses, possibly originating from before the 10th century. It is composed of two parts and Sūta is the main narrator.Source: Wisdom Library: Varāha-purāṇa

1) Vipula (विपुल) is the Sanskrit name of one of Bharata’s sons, mentioned in the Nāṭyaśāstra 1.26-33. After Brahmā created the Nāṭyaveda (nāṭyaśāstra), he ordered Bharata to teach the science to his (one hundred) sons. Bharata thus learned the Nāṭyaveda from Brahmā, and then made his sons study and learn its proper application. After their study, Bharata assigned his sons (eg., Vipula) various roles suitable to them.
2a) Vipulā (विपुला) refers to a type of syllabic metre (vṛtta), according to the Nāṭyaśāstra chapter 16. Vipulā falls in the Anuṣṭup (Anuṣṭubh) class of chandas (‘rhythm-type’), which implies that verses constructed with this metre have four pādas (‘foot’ or ‘quarter-verse’) containing eighteen syllables each.
2b) Vipulā (विपुला) refers to a type of āryā syllabic metre (vṛtta), according to the Nāṭyaśāstra chapter 16. The Vipulā variation is one amongst five types of āryā-meters.Source: Wisdom Library: Nāṭya-śāstra
