BHADRAMATI - भद्रमति

A very poor brahmin. This brahmin had six wives and two hundred and fortyfour daughters. [Nārada Purāṇam]. Once, hearing the glory of Bhūdāna (giving away land free to the deserved) he was much impressed and from then onwards he became filled with a strong desire to give land free to the poor. He had no land of his own. But he went to the king of Kauśāmbī and begged for some land which when received was immediately given as gift to poor brahmins. After that he went and bathed in the Pāpanāśana tīrtha situated in the mount of Veṅkaṭācala. Bhadramati got salvation by this good deed. [Skanda 2,1,10].
