SARABHANGA. [Source: Dowson's Classical Dictionary of Hindu Mythology] A hermit visited by Rama and Sita in the Dandaka forest. When he had seen Rama he declared that his desire had been granted, and that he would depart to the highest heaven. He prepared a fire and entered it. His body was consumed, but there came forth from the fire a beautiful youth, and in this form Sarabhanga departed to heaven.
