Lord Krishna (His Lilas and Teachings) -Swami Sivananda
THE BHAGAVATA DHARMA
The Bhagavata Path
“Svayambhuva Manu had a son Priyavrita. His son was Agnidhra, father of Nabhi. Nabhi’s son was Rishabha who was an Amsa of Narayana. He appeared on earth in order to teach the Dharmas leading to Moksha. He had a hundred sons who were all thoroughly versed in the Vedas and Brahma Vidya. The eldest of them was Bharata, a great devotee of the Lord, in honour of whom this land has been named Bharata Varsha. He reigned over the Bharata Khanda for some time and renounced the kingdom. He did Tapas and worshipped Hari and attained His region at the end of three lives.
“Nine of them became sages skilled in the practice of Brahma Vidya. Their names were Kavi, Hari, Antariksha, Prabuddha, Pippalayana, Avirhotra, Drumila, Chamasa and Karabhajana.
