Kavi Bhushan (c. 1613–1712) was an Indian poet in the courts of the Bundeli king Chhatrasal and the Maratha king Shivaji. He mainly wrote in Brajbhasha interspersed with words from Sanskrit, Arabic and Persian languages. He was a scholar poet of Anupras and Shlesh Alankar. Bhushan originally resided in the Tikwapur village in present-day Ghatampur tehsil, Kanpur district of Uttar Pradesh. He was the brother of the poets Chintamani and Matiram. Bhushan's original name is unknown. Kavi Bhushan ("Precious Poet") was a title given to him by the Rudra Pratap of Chitrakoot. He first met Shivaji when the latter visited Agra to meet the emperor Aurangzeb; thereafter, Bhushan was supported by Shivaji Maharaj. Bhushan later moved from Varanasi to Maratha Kingdom in the 1670s, and attended Shivaji Raje durbar (court). Bhushan presented many of his poems on the occasion of the grand coronation of Shivaji Maharaj.
