harahvati The great sea was fed by a mighty river (proto-Indo-Iranian: harahvati, Avestan: Aredvi Sura, middle Persian: Ardvisur). Two rivers, one to the east and one to the west, flowed out of it and encircled the earth (Bundahishn 11.100.2, 28.8) where they were then cleansed by Puitika (Avestan) Quoted from Wikipedia: Aban The Harasvati referred to in the Avesta is not the same Sarasvati as that of the Rig, because it does not flow from the mountains to the sea.
