vrm.7.68 Puru was born of Sarmishtha and Yadu of Devayani.
vrm.7.68 Thereat Yadu, greatly sorry, said to his mother "Born in the race of the illustrious Bhargava of unwearied actions, thou art going through mental afflictions and unbearable insults; therefore, O mother, let us both enter into fire.
vrm.7.69 Thereupon meeting with the infirmities of age by the imprecation of the saint he said to his son Yadu "O Yadu, thou art cognizant of religion, do thou therefore take this decripitude for me ;I shall satisfy myself with various enjoyments.
vrm.7.69 Hearing those words of Yayati, the foremost of men, Yadu replied "Let thy most favourite son Puru take upon himself this decrepitude.
vrm.7.69 Hearing the words of Yadu, Yayati said to Puru "O thou having large arms, do thou take the decrepitude for me.
vrm.7.69 Having thus addressed his son Puru, the king Yayati angrily said to Yadu, the son of Devayani Thou, vicious Rakshasa, art born of me in the shape of a Kshatriya, or else why shouldst thou disobey my orders ?For this thou shalt never be a king.
vrm.7.69 Having thus imprecated Yadu, the royal saint Yayati honored Puru, the enhancer of the prosperity of the kingdom, with installation and then retired to woods.
vrm.7.69 Yadu begot thousands and thousands of Rakshasas and being degraded from the royal family reigned in a city named Kraunchavana, hard to be got at.
