Budhasvamin

Budhasvamin (Sanskrit: बुधस्वामिन् , Bengali: বুধস্বামিন্  ) was a Brahmin (Brahmana) who lived around 575 CE in Udumbaragahvara in Punjab. He was of Parashara Gotra and belonged to the Vajasaneya Vedic school.

In 640 CE, his sons Dattasvamin (Sanskrit: दत्तस्वामिन् , Bengali: দত্তস্বামিন্ ) and Kumarasvamin (Sanskrit: कुमारस्वामिन् , Bengali: কুমারস্বামিন্ ), and grandson Agnisvamin (Sanskrit: अग्निस्वामिन् , Bengali: অগ্নিস্বামিন্ ) migrated from Udumbaragahvara in Punjab to Mandsaur in Western Malwa (western Madhya Pradesh). 

This is recorded in the 640 AD Nogawa Plates of Dharasena II Baladitya of the Maitrakas of Vallabhi who was a contemporary of Gurjara Dadda II and ruled in the Broach or Bharuch region of Gujarat.
