Bajas in the mythology of India, is the third incarnation of Brahma in the third periodic age. His mother was Ghandari, who gave birth to him four hours after the embrace of a Rishi. Immediately after birth he went into a wood. His father, having received a revelation of his whereabouts, sought him, and made him a prophet. As such he is called Muny. He is the anthor of the Mahabharata, Bhagavata, and other poems, which he wrote under the name of Viasa. His son, Sukadewa, excelled the father in purity and virtue, so, that the heavenly Apsaras, six hundred millions of beautiful ethereal maidens, were not at all concerned at bathing in his presence; but they quickly dressed when his father appeared.
