ŚVETA I   A King in ancient India. By his moral and spiritual power he was able to restore his dead son to life. He did not eat meat. [Mahābhārata, Anuśāsana Parva, Chapter 150] mentions that he was one of the few Kings who deserve to be remembered with reverence at dawn and dusk. [M.B. Ādi Parva, Chapter 1, Verse 233];[ Śānti Parva, Chapter 153, Verse 68];[ Anuśāsana Parva, Chapter 115, Verse 66].
ŚVETA II   A King. [Mahābhārata, Sabhā Parva, Dākṣiṇātya Pāṭha, Chapter 14] mentions that he was one of the prominent Kings in India.
ŚVETA III   A son of the Virāṭa King. Śveta was the son of King Virāṭa by his chief wife Surathā, who was a princess of Kosala. Śveta had attended Yudhiṣṭhira's Rājasūya. This distinguished warrior was killed by Bhīṣma in Bhārata Yuddha. [M.B. Dākṣiṇātya Pāṭha, Virāṭa Parva, Chapter 16];[ Sabhā Parva, Chapter 44, Verse 20];[ Bhīṣma Parva, Chapter 48].
ŚVETA IV   A warrior of Subrahmaṇya. [Mahābhārata, Śalya Parva, Chapter 45, Verse 64].
ŚVETA V   Son of the elder brother of King Sudeva. There is a story of how Śveta, who was a sinner, attained mokṣa (salvation) by a vision of sage Agastya. Towards the end of his life, Śveta attained Mokṣa by performing austere tapas. But since he failed to earn God's grace by giving food to the hungry, even in Heaven, he was tormented by hunger and thirst. His hunger was so severe that he began eating his own flesh. At last as suggested by Brahmā he was born again on earth and after a visit to Agastya re-entered Heaven.
ŚVETA VII   A mountain in Uttarā Khaṇḍa. In [Mahābhārata, Vana Parva, Chapter 139, Verse 1], we find that the Pāṇḍavas crossed the Śveta mountain during their life in the forest.
ŚVETA VIII   A country situated on the northern side of the Nīla mountain. The region known as “Hiraṇyakam” is situated to the north of this country. [M.B. Bhīṣma Parva, Chapter 6, Verse 37].
