Years of birth and death unknown. Ancient Indian lyric poet who lived around the seventh century. Wrote in Sanskrit.

Bhartrhari was the author of the collections of love lyrics The Hundred Verses on Love, The Hundred Verses on Worldly Wisdom, and The Hundred Verses on Detachment From the World. The conflict between the humane poet and the feudal world’s cruelty is felt in these works. His poetry is marked by spontaneity of feeling, grace of form, and clarity of style.
