Guṇāḍhya is the Sanskrit name of the sixth-century Indian author of the Bṛhatkathā, a large collection of tales attested by Daṇḍin, the author of the Kavyadarsha, Subandhu, the author of Vasavadatta, and Bāṇabhaṭṭa, the author of the Kadambari. Scholars compare Guṇāḍhya with Vyasa and Valmiki even though he did not write the now long-lost Brihatkatha in Sanskrit; the loss of this text is one of the greatest losses of Indian literature. Presently available are its two Kashmiri Sanskrit recensions, the Brihatkathamanjari by Kshemendra and the Kathasaritsagara by Somadeva.

dbo:abstract
  • Gunadhya est un auteur de l'hindouisme ayant vécu au début de notre ère. Il a écrit la Brihatkatha, livre comparé dans la culture indienne au Mahabharata et au Ramayana. De nombreuses légendes courent sur cet écrivain. Son travail a été perdu bien qu'il ait contenu 700 000 couplets, et, qu'il ait cherché à transmettre une sagesse séculaire; cependant la culture orale en a gardé de nombreuses histoires. (fr)
