Bagiraden (or Bhaghirut), in the mythology of India, was a powerful prince in the family of the children of the sun, the son of Telibien and father of Vissuraden. His life, which fell in the first age of the world, was so. holy, and his three thousand years of penitence so strict and meritorious, that the deities consented to the falling of the sacred waters of the Ganges, which were yet suspended in the heavens, upon the earth, to give life again to the children of Sagur, sixty thousand of whom had been converted into ashes by one look of the penitent Kabiler.
