Nilakaṇṭha Caturdhara

The Mahābhārata, one of the two great epics of Hinduism, has a well-known commentary called Bhāratabhāvadipa by Nilakaṇṭha Caturdhara. He was a descend-ent of one Lakṣmaṇārya, Nārāyaṇa and Dhīreśa being two more distinguished ancestors of his.

He probably lived around A. D. 1400.
