Chapter 6: The Progeny of the Daughters of Daksha

(1) S'rÓ S'uka said: 'The son of the Pr‚cetas, being pacified by Lord Brahm‚, thereafter [after he had cursed N‚rada] begot at his kind request [to procreate again] in his wife AsiknÓ sixty daughters who were all very fond of their father. (2) Ten of them he gave to king Dharma [Yamar‚ja], Kas'yapa he gave thirteen, twenty-seven were given to the moon god and BhŻta, Angir‚ and Kris'‚s'va he gave each two. The four remaining he also gave to Kas'yapa. (3) Please hear from me all the different names of these women who with their many children and descendants populated the three worlds and from whom you and I are stemming.

(4) The wives of Yamar‚ja were Bh‚nu, Lamb‚, Kakud, Y‚mi, Vis'v‚, S‚dhy‚, MarutvatÓ, Vasu, MuhŻrt‚ and Sankalp‚. Now hear about their sons. (5) From Bh‚nu Deva-rishabha was born and from him was born Indrasena, oh King. Vidyota ['lightning'] appeared from Lamb‚ and from him there appeared [the spirits presiding over the] clouds. (6) From Kakud Sankatha appeared and from him there was the son named KÓkatha who fathered many protectors of earthly strongholds. Y‚mi gave birth to Svarga from whose loins Nandi was born. (7) The [ten] Vis'vadevas were born from Vis'v‚, but it is said that from them there was no progeny. The S‚dhyas, who were born from S‚dhy‚, had one son: Arthasiddhi. (8) Marutv‚n and Jayanta took birth from MarutvatÓ. Jayanta was an expansion of V‚sudeva and is also known as Upendra. (9) From MuhŻrt‚ ['forty-eight minutes'] the MauhŻrtikas were born, a group of [thirty] gods who took birth to present the living beings the result of their personal time-bound actions. (10-11) From Sankalp‚ Sankalpa [the deity presiding over one's conviction] was born and from him K‚ma [the god of love] appeared. Vasu gave birth to the eight  Vasus. Now listen to their names: Drona, Pr‚na, Dhruva, Arka, Agni, Dosha, V‚stu and Vibh‚vasu. From Drona's wife Abhimati sons appeared like Harsha, S'oka, Bhaya and more. (12) ŘrjasvatÓ the wife of Pr‚na gave birth to Saha, ¬yus and Purojava. From Dhruva's wife Dharani the various [gods ruling over the] cities and towns were born. (13) From the wife of Arka, V‚san‚, there were the sons named Tarsha and so on and from Dh‚r‚, the wife of the Vasu Agni, there were the sons known as Dravinaka and so on.  (14) Krittik‚, another wife of Agni, gave birth to Skanda [K‚rttikeya] whose sons were headed by Vis'‚kha. From Dosha's wife S'arvarÓ the son S'is'um‚ra was born. He was an expansion of the Lord of Time [see 5.23]. (15) From V‚stu's wife ¬ngirasÓ the son Vis'vakarm‚ [the great architect] was born who became the husband of ¬kritÓ. From them was born the Manu named C‚kshusha whose sons were the Vis'vadevas and S‚dhyas [see verse 7]. (16) Řsh‚, the wife of Vibh‚vasu, gave birth to Vyushtha, Rocisha and ¬tapa.  ¬tapa then fathered PaŮcay‚ma ['the span of the day'] who awakens the living beings to engage in material activities. (17-18) SarŻp‚, the wife of BhŻta, gave birth to the millions of Rudras headed by Raivata, Aja, Bhava, BhÓma, V‚ma, Ugra, Vrish‚kapi, Ajaikap‚t, Ahirbradhna, BahurŻpa and Mah‚n. Their associates, the ghastly ghosts and Vin‚yakas [a type of demons, hobgoblins], originated from his other wife. (19) Praj‚pati Angir‚'s wife Svadh‚ accepted the Pit‚s for her sons and [his other wife] SatÓ accepted Atharv‚ngirasa as her son who was the [fourth] Veda [the Atharva Veda] in person. (20) Chandra (Soma) mandala - Nepal.The wife of Kris'‚s'va, Arcis, gave birth to DhŻmaketu who in Dhishan‚ begot the sons Vedas'ir‚, Devala, Vayuna and Manu. (21-22) Kas'yapa [or T‚rkshya] had four wives: Vinat‚ [Suparn‚], KadrŻ, PatangÓ and Y‚minÓ. From PatangÓ the birds originated, from Y‚minÓ the locusts came and Vinat‚ brought Garuda into existence - the one who is regarded the carrier of YajŮa [Vishnu] - and AnŻru [Aruna], the chariot driver of SŻrya, the god of the sun. From KadrŻ there were different kinds of serpents. (23) The wives of the moon god [Soma] were the [goddesses ruling the twenty-seven] lunar mansions named Krittik‚ and so on, but, oh son of Bharata, because Daksha had cursed him [for preferring RohinÓ], he was pestered by a degenerative disease [consumption] and had no children with any of them. (24-26) Again pacifying him, Soma, in respect of the division of time, managed to stop the decay [reducing it to the dark fortnight]. Now please take notice of all the names of the wives of Kas'yapa, the mothers from whom all the living beings of this entire universe were born: Aditi, Diti, Danu, K‚shthh‚, Arishth‚, Suras‚, Il‚, Muni, Krodhavas'‚, T‚mr‚, Surabhi, Saram‚ and Timi. From Timi the aquatics appeared and the animals of prey were the children of Saram‚. (27) From Surabhi the buffalo found its existence as also the cows and other animals with cloven hooves, oh King. From T‚mr‚ the eagles, the vultures and so on came into being and from Muni there were the different angels. (28) The reptiles such as the dandas'Żka snakes originated from Krodhavas'‚, from Il‚ all the creepers and trees came and all the evil ones [like the demons and cannibals] were there from Suras‚. (29-31) From Arishth‚ there were only Gandharvas and from K‚shthh‚ there were the animals whose hooves are not split. From Danu there were sixty-one sons born; the ones important are: DvimŻrdh‚, S'ambara, Arishth‚, HayagrÓva, Vibh‚vasu, Ayomukha, S'ankus'ir‚, Svarbh‚nu, Kapila, Aruna, Pulom‚ and Vrishaparv‚ as also Ekacakra, Anut‚pana, DhŻmrakes'a, VirŻp‚ksha, Vipracitti and Durjaya. (32) Suprabh‚, the daughter of Svarbh‚nu married Namuci, but S'armishthh‚, born from Vrishaparv‚, went to Yay‚ti, the powerful son of Nahusha. (33-36) There were four very beautiful daughters of Vais'v‚nara: Upad‚navÓ, Hayas'ir‚, Pulom‚ and K‚lak‚. Hirany‚ksha married Upad‚navÓ and Kratu married Hayas'ir‚, oh King, but when on the plea of Lord Brahm‚ the two daughters Pulom‚ and K‚lak‚ of Vais'v‚nara married to the oh so mighty praj‚pati Kas'yapa, the Pauloma and K‚lakeya demons were born from them who were very keen on fighting. When sixty thousand of them [headed by Niv‚takavaca] constituted a disturbance to the sacrifices in the heavenly places, your grandfather [Arjuna] single-handedly killed them just to please Indra, oh King. (37) From Vipracitti's wife Simhik‚ one hundred and one sons were born who all obtained a planet of their own. R‚hu was the eldest and the hundred others were [called] the Ketus. (38-39) Now hear from me the chronological order of the dynasty that originated from Aditi, wherein N‚r‚yana, the One Almighty Lord, manifested as a plenary expansion of Himself [called V‚mana]. Vivasv‚n, Aryam‚, PŻsh‚ and Tvashth‚ followed by Savit‚, Bhaga, Dh‚t‚, Vidh‚t‚, Varuna, Mitra, S'atru and Urukrama [were her twelve sons month by month consecutively presiding over the sun. Urukrama is the dwarf-incarnation V‚mana]. (40) The most fortunate SamjŮ‚ gave as the wife of Vivasv‚n birth to the Manu called S'r‚ddhadeva as also to the twin, the demigod Yamar‚ja and his sister YamÓ [the river Yamun‚]. She appeared on earth in the form of a mare and gave birth to the As'vinÓ-kum‚ras. (41) Ch‚y‚ [another wife of the sun god] got from him the sons S'anais'cara [Saturn] and S‚varni Manu as also a daughter named TapatÓ who selected Samvarana for her husband. (42) Aryam‚'s wife M‚trik‚ gave birth to many scholarly sons. It was from their [talents] that Lord Brahm‚ created humanity [as we know it]. (43) PŻsh‚ remained childless living on dough only. He had broken his teeth because he had shown them when he had to laugh about the anger of Daksha [when he insulted Lord S'iva, see 4.5: 21, 4.7: 4]. (44) From the marriage between Tvashth‚ and the girl called Racan‚, who was a Daitya daughter, the two sons Sannives'a and the very powerful Vis'varŻpa were born. (45) He [Vis'varŻpa] was by the God-conscious souls, despite being the son of a daughter of their enemies, accepted as their priest, after they were abandoned by their spiritual master Brihaspati for having disrespected him.'
