taranta Appears, along with Purumīdha, as a patron of Syāvāśva in the Rigveda. In the Pañcavimśa Brāhmana and other Brāhmanas he, together with Purumīdha, is de­scribed as receiving gifts from Dhvasra and Purusanti; but since the receipt of gifts was forbidden to Ksatriyas, they for the nonce became Rsis, and composed a passage in honour of the donors. He, like Purumīdha, was a Vaidadaśvi, or son of Vidadaśva.
dhvasanti Is in one passage of the Rigveda mentioned together with Purusanti as having been aided by the Aśvins. There can be no doubt that this is the longer form of the name Dhvasra, which is found with Purusanti both in the Rigveda and in the Pañcavimśa Brāhmana.
dhvasra Is named with Purusanti in the Pañcavimśa Brāh­mana as giving gifts to Taranta and Purumīdha. These two, being kings, could not properly accept gifts which Brāhmanas alone could accept, but by becoming authors of a verse of the Rigveda they qualified themselves to accept them. The verse mentions the names in the dual as Dhvasrayofy Purusaηtyoh, ‘from the two, Dhvasra and Purusanti.’ In the Pañcavimśa Brāhmana5 the names occur in the dual as Dhvasre Purusanti, a reading which is confirmed by the Nidāna Sūtra. The former is necessarily a feminine form, though Sāyana, in his comment on the passage, explains it as really an irregular masculine. According to Roth, the feminine is a corruption based on the dual form in the verse of the Rigveda mentioned above; but the names may be those of women, as Benfey inclines to believe. Weber suggests that the two were demons, but this is, as Sieg shows, quite unnecessary. Dhvasra is no doubt identical with Dhvasanti.
purumīḷha Is mentioned twice in the Rigveda as an ancient sage, in which capacity he appears in the Atharvaveda also. Perhaps the same Purumīlha is intended in an obscure hymn in the Rigveda, where, according to the legends reported in the Brhaddevatā and by Sadguruśisya in his commentary on the Sarvānukramanī, and by Sāyana in his commentary on the Rigveda, he as well as Taranta was a son of Vidadaśva, and a patron of the singer Syāvāśva. The correctness of the legend has been shown to be most improbable by Oldenberg, who points out that the legend misinterprets the Rigveda by making Purumīlha a Vaidadaśvi, for he is there only compared in generosity to one. In another legend found in the Pañcavimśa Brāhmana, and based on a hymn of the Rigveda, Purumīlha and Taranta appear as persons who received gifts from Dhvasra and Puru- isanti, and as sons of Vidadaśva. The legend, which also occurs in the śātyāyanaka, is apparently best explained by Sieg, who says that as the two were kings they could not under the rules of caste accept gifts, unless for the nonce they became singers. The legend has no claim at all, as Oldenberg shows, to validity.
puruṣanti Is a name that occurs twice in the Rigveda, in the first passage denoting a protágá of the Aśvins, in the second a patron who gave presents to one of the Vedic singers. In both cases the name is joined with that of Dhvasanti or Dhvasra. The presumption from the manner in which these three names are mentioned is that they designate men, but the grammatical form of the words might equally well be feminine. Females must be meant, if the evidence of the Paficavimśa Brāhmaṇa is to be taken as decisive, for the form of the first of the two names there occurring, Dhvasre Purusantī, ‘ Dhvasrā and Puruṣanti,’ is exclusively feminine, though here as well as elsewhere Sāyaṇa interprets the names as masculines. See also Taranta and Purumīlha.
