vp.4.13 THE sons of Satwata were Bhajina, Bhajamana, Divya, Andhaka, Devavriddha, Mahabhoja, and Vrishni 1. Bhajamana had three sons, Nimi 2, Krikana 3, and Vrishni 4, by one wife, and as many by another, satajit, Sahasrajit, and Ayutajit 5. The son of Devavriddha was Babhru of whom this verse is recited; "We hear when afar, and we behold when nigh, that Babhru is the first of men, and Devavriddha is equal to the gods: sixty six persons following the precepts of one, and six thousand and eight who were disciples of the other, obtained immortality." Mahabhoja was a pious prince; his descendants were the Bhojas, the princes of Mrittikavati 6, thence called Marttikavatas 7. Vrishni had two sons, Sumitra and Yudhajit 8; from the former Anamitra and sini were

These are the kings of the family of Ikshwaku, descended from Vrihadbala. This commemorative verse is current concerning them; "The race of the descendants of Ikshwaku will terminate with Sumitra: it will end in the Kali age with him 23."
