Anādhṛṣṭi (Anadhrishti) was one of the most prominent sons sired by Śūra (Sura) of the Vṛṣṇi (Vrishni) clan to Bhojā (Bhoja). Although Vāyupurāṇa (Vayupurana) reads his name as Anādhṛṣṭikara (Anadhrishtikara), authenticity of this reading is not established.
In Sabhāparva (Sabhaparva) of Mahābhārata (Mahabharata), Kṛṣṇa (Krishna) refers to seven principal Vṛṣṇi warriors while describing Jarāsandha’s prowess. Anādhṛṣṭi is one of them –
kṛtavarmā hyanādhṛṣṭiḥ samīkaḥ samitiñjayaḥ.
Anādhṛṣṭi, along with other Yadu premiers, like Balarāma (Balarama) and Uddhava, visited Arjuna and Subhadrā (Subhadra) at Indraprastha after their marriage and presented them with many gifts. He is also seen accompanying Subhadrā and Abhimanyu to the city of Upaplavya at the time of Abhimanyu’s marriage. During the battle of Kurukṣetra (Kurukshetra) we also find him and Sātyaki (Satyaki), among other warriors, closely escorting Kṛṣṇa and Arjuna out of their camps.
