Katha (narrative stories)
Vītabhīti (वीतभीति) is one of the ministers of Sūryaprabha, son of king Candraprabha, according to the Kathāsaritsāgara, chapter 44. Accordingly, as Vajraprabha said to Naravāhanadatta: “... And all his ministers flew up after him, with their weapons in their hands, Prahasta, and Prabhāsa, and Bhāsa, and Siddhārtha, and Prajñāḍhya, and Sarvadamana, and Vītabhīti and Śubhaṅkara”.
The Kathāsaritsāgara (‘ocean of streams of story’), mentioning Vītabhīti, 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
