viśvakarman bhauvana विश्वकर्मन् भौवन

Definition: (‘Descendant of Bhuvana’) is the name of a quite mythical king. He is said in the Aitareya Brāhmaṇa to have been consecrated by Kaśyapa, to whom he offered the earth (i.e., presumably a piece of land) as a sacrificial fee; in the śatapatha Brāhmaṇa he performed the Sarvamedha (‘universal sacrifice’), and made a similar offer; in both cases the earth refused to be given. The story seems to contain a reference to the early dislike of gifts of land, but it cannot be stated with certainty that this is the meaning.
