Of all the gods and demigods who gathered to bless Arjuna at the time of his birth, Anagha is named as one of the gandharva deities present.

  • The gandharva named Anagha is also mentioned in Vāyupurāṇa (Vayupurana). It is chronicled here that apsarā (apsara; celestial nymphs) and gandharva were born of Kaśyapa Prajāpati (Kashyapa Prajapati) to Dakṣa’s (Daksha’s) daughter Muni. Hence, they were also known as Mauneya (‘originated from Muni’). Anagha was one of the Mauneya gandharva.
