[He was a descendant of Bhṛigu, (the son of Chyavana by his wife Āruṣī, and grandson of Bhṛigu). The Mahābhārata relates that the sons of Kārtavīrya, with the desire of destroying the descendants of Bhṛigu, killed even the children in the womb. One of the women of the family, in order to preserve her embryo, secreted it in her thigh (ūru), whence the child at its birth was called Aurva. Beholding him, the sons of Kārtavirya were struck with blindness, and his wrath gave rise to a flame which threatened to consume the whole world, had he not, at the desire of his Pitṛis, the Bhārgavas, cast it into the ocean, where it remained concealed with the face of a horse; cf. Vaḍavāgni.

aurva ‘Descendant of Uru or Urva,’ appears in the Rigveda in close connexion with Bhrgu, being probably a Bhrgu himself. As in one passage of the Aitareya Brāhmana, the descendants of Aitaśa are called the worst of the Aurvas, while the parallel version of the Kausītaki Brāhmana calls them the worst of the Bhrgus, the Aurvas must have been a branch of the larger family of the Bhrgus. Aurva himself is said in the Taittirīya Samhitā to have received offspring from Atri. In the Pañcavimśa Brāhmana two Aurvas are referred to as authorities. See also Kutsa.
taurvaśa See Turvaśa.
