Migration of Brahmins as per Bonda Plates in 575 AD

Migration of Brahmins as per Bonda Plates 575 AD

In this post I will talk about the migration of Brahmins as per Bonda Plates issued by Mahashiva Tivara who ruled around 575 AD in the Raipur-Bilaspur-Sambalpur region of Chhattisgarh.

Mahashiva Tivara belonged to the Panduvamshi clan of South Kosala and was the fourth ruler in the line.

The Bonda plates were edited by D.C. Sirkar.

As per the Bonda Plate of 575 AD, Mahashiva Tivara granted two localities to a number of Brahmins (Brahmanas). Three of these Brahmins were:
  • Avanti Vikramopadhyaya (Sanskrit: अवन्ति विक्रमोपाध्याय Bengali: অবন্তি বিক্রমোপাধ্যায়)
  • Lata Phalihasvamin (Sanskrit: लाट फलिहस्वामिन Bengali: লাট ফলিহস্বামিন)
  • Yoranga Vishnubhavasvamin (Sanskrit: योरङ्ग विष्णुभवस्वामिन Bengali: যোরঙ্গ বিষ্ণুভবস্বামিন)

These 3 Brahmins migrated from Avanti (Malwa region comprising Western Madhya Pradesh and South eastern Rajasthan) and Gujarat to Raipur-Bilaspur region of Chattisgarh in 575 AD (6th century AV).
