Budhwar (बुधवार)[1][2] Budhvar (बुधवार)[3] Badhwar (बधवार) Bodh (बोध) Bodha (बोधा) is a clan or gotra of Jats found in Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana and Rajasthan. It is branch of Chauhan. The Budhwar gotra is found among the Marathas and Khatris also.[4]

Origin

Budhwars are descendants of King Budha (बुधा), the direct progenitor of the Chandravansh.[5][6]

History

V. S. Agrawala[7] writes that Ashtadhyayi of Panini mentions janapada Bodha (बोधा) - The Bodha also occur in the list of Bhishmaparva (10.37-38) in the same group as Kulingas, Sālvas and Mādreyas. Shalva country had a special breed of bulls known as s Sālvaka.


Ram Swarup Joon[8] writes about Budhwar: It cannot be said definitely as to why they are called Budhwars. They claim to be Chandravanshi. The Budhwar gotra is found among the Marathas and Khatris also. Among the Jats there is a gotra called Budhotiya.

Budhwar kings are mentioned to have offered presents in the Rajsuya Yagya ceremony of the Pandavas. The descendants of the Budhwar gotra in the western Punjab are called Satroya, Badhan Chatra, Siyan, Gawaya, Goch and Mudyal.


The Mahabharata Bhisma Parva, Mahabharata/Book VI Chapter 10 shloka 38 mentions about Bodhas people and province along with Surasenas, Kalingas, Mokas, Matsyas, Kuntalas people. [9]

Maharaja Budh was son of Maharaja Chandra. Chandravansh in Hindus started after Maharaja Chandra. Budhwars are descendent of Maharaja Budh.[10]

Budhwar and Badhwar are the two names of the same gotras, People mistake Badhwars as Bhatodia, but they are Budhwars, mainly found in Sunari Kalan of Rohtak on the banks of Yamuna and frequently troubled by floods!![11]

According to Bhim Singh Dahiya[12], they are the Buddi of Babylonian inscription, the Budii of Herodotus, the Putiya of Persian and the Phut of scriptures.[13] They are mentioned in the Vayu Purana and Brahmanda Purana as well as by Patanjali.[14] They are the Bodhi of Sindh/Baluchistan of the 7/8th century AD. The present Budhwar Jats are their representative. Mahabharata's Sabha Parva[15] and Bhisma Parva[16] also mention them.

The Naga dynasty had its hold in the present Gwalior - Bhopal divisions of Madhya Pradesh from about beginning of third to the middle of fourth century AD. Their centres were at Padmavati (Pawaiya near Gwalior) and Kantipuri (Kutwār district Morena). Several thousand copper coins have been discovered at these sites and other sites. The successors of Satvahanas in the Tripuri region were Bodhis. Names of five Bodhi rulers are known from the recent excavations at Tripuri.[17]

One of six Mede (Manda) tribes in Herodotus

Budhwar is one of six Mede Manda tribes described by Herodotus as Buddi. Herodotus, i. 101, lists the names of six Mede (Manda) tribes: Thus Deioces collected the Medes (Manda) into a nation, and ruled over them alone. Now these are the tribes of which they consist: the Busae, the Paretaceni, the Struchates, the Arizanti (Aryan Jats), the Budii (Budhwar), and the Magi (Manju).[18]

Here in the above description Jat gotras have been given in the bracket which may be matched with those given by Herodotus. It may be a matter of further research if Budila gotra of Jats is related with Buddi of Herodotus. Some historical facts do suggest that Budhwar Jats may had about one or two small kingdoms in Babilon and Persia.

In the History of Herodotus

Bhim Singh Dahiya[19] writes that the in the period from ninth century B.C. to the fourth century B.C., roughly the time between the Manda and Van empires and Alexander's invasion, we find numerous tribes of the Jats finding a name in the history of Herodotus and others. Among the tribes of the Medians, we find:

The ruling people are called Arizanti or Arizatoi. The word Ari is a form of Arya and Zanti/Zatoi are of course the Jats, the Djati of ancient Egypt and the Guti of Sumer and China.

इतिहास

दलीप सिंह अहलावत लिखते हैं: - महाराजा चन्द्र (जिनसे चन्द्रवंश प्रचलित हुआ) के पुत्र महाराजा बुध के नाम पर यह जाटवंश चला। इस वंश का कोई राज्य का इतिहास नहीं मिलता। किन्तु इनके प्राचीन एवं कुलीन (अच्छा खानदान) होने को सभी ऐतिहासिक प्रमाणित करते हैं। इनमें प्रचलित विश्वास एवं रीति-नीति प्राचीन वैदिकधर्मियों के पूर्णतया अनुकूल है। बेबिलोनिया के शिलालेख पर इनका नाम बुदी लिखा है। इनको फारसवालों ने पूतिया कहा और धर्मपुस्तक बाईबिल में फूत लिखा है।[20] बुधवार वंश का नाम पुराणों एवं महाभारत सभापर्व और भीष्मपर्व में भी लिखा है।

सातवीं व आठवीं सदी में ये लोग सिन्ध और बलोचिस्तान में थे और वहां बोधी के नाम से कहे गये हैं। बुधवार गोत्र के जाट राजस्थान और पंजाब में भी हैं। इस वंश के जाट व खत्री बराबर की संख्या में हैं। बिजनौर (उ०प्र०) जिले में इस्माईलपुर, नारायण खेड़ी और रोहतक जिला (हरयाणा) के सुनारियां गांव में बुधवार जाटों की आधुनिक उन्नति उल्लेखनीय है। बुधवार गोत्र के जाटों का एक और भी गांव सुनारियां नाम का है जो कि पिपली के निकट जिला कुरुक्षेत्र (हरयाणा) में है।[21]

जब इस बुधवार वंश (गोत्र) का नाम बेबिलोनिया के शिलालेख पर है तथा हैरोडोटस (यूनानी इतिहासकार जो 480 ई० पू० हुआ) और फारस (ईरान) वालों ने, लिखा है तब साफ है कि इनका राज्य वहां पर था।[22]
