Migration of Brahmins as per Kalibhana Copper Plate of Mahabhavagupta I in 941 AD

In this post I will talk about the migration of Brahmins as per Kalibhana Copper Plate of Mahabhavagupta I in 941 AD.

Janamajeya Mahabhavagupta I, successor to Shivagupta belonged to the Somavamsa family which ruled over the area around Sambalpur region of Orissa. Mahabhavagupta I ruled from 935 AD to 970 AD.

In his 6th year that is in 941 AD he issued the Kalibhana Copper Plate.

As per the plate, the King donated a village in the Balangir area of Orissa to a Brahmin Bhattaputra Govinda (Sanskrit: भट्टपुत्र गोविंद ,  Bengali: ভট্টপুত্র গোবিংদ  ) son of Bhattaputra Konda (Sanskrit: भट्टपुत्र कोण्ड , Bengali: ভট্টপুত্র কোণ্ড ) , who belonged to the Parashara Gotra with the pravaras of Vashishtha, Shakti and Parasharya and was a student of the Madhyandina Shakha of the Vajasaneyi school of Yajur Veda. He was an immigrant of Muzaffarpur in North Bihar.
