ajanAbhavarsha

Yesterday, swamiji narrated the story of JadabhArata.
Most people may know that the name BhArat (or BhArat Varsha ) comes from the great King Bharat who once ruled over India. But what was the name before him? Swamiji noted that before him the country was known as ‘ajanAbhavarsha’. He did not venture into the details of how that name came about.
The Jadabharat story and the former name of Bharat may also be found here.
