करुष  हिन्दी देवनागरी में पढ़ें।

karush mahabharat men ullekhit ek pauranik sthan hai. mahabharat udyog parv[1] men karush aur chedi deshon ka ekatr ullekh hai jisase ingit hota hai ki ye parshvavarti desh rahe honge[2]-

'upashritashchedi karushakashche sarvodyogairbhoomipala: sameta:'.

mahabharat udyog parv[3] men bhi chedi naresh shishupal aur karush raj ka ekasath hi nam aya hai-

yashomanau vardhayanh pandavananpurabhinachchhishupaln samikshyayasy sarvevardhayanti smamann karusharaj pramukha narendra:'.

chedi vartaman jabalapur (madhy pradesh) ke parivarti desh ka nam tha. karush isake dakshin men sthit raha hoga. baghelakhnd ka ek bhag karush ke antargat tha. yah tathy vayu puran ke nimn uddharan se bhi pusht hota hai-

karushashch sahaishikatavya: shabarastatha,
pulindarvidhyapushika vaidarbhadndakai: sah.'[4]

yahan karushon ka ullekh shabaron, pulindon vaidarbhon, dndakavanavasiyon, ataviyon aur vindhyapushikon ke sath men kiya gaya hai. ye sab jatiyan vindhyachal ke anchal men nivas karati thin. mahabharat, sabha parv[5] men bhi karushon ka ullekh hai. vishnupuran men karushon ko malav desh ke asapas desh men nivasit mana gaya hai-

'karusha malavashchaiv pariyatranivasin:,
sauvira: saindhava hoona: salva: kosalavasin:.'[6]

pauranik ullekhon se gyat hota hai ki shrikrishn ke samay karush ka raja dntavakr tha. isane magadh ke raja jarasndh ko mathura nagari par chadhaee karane men sahayata di thi.
