Kapil Jee - A fierce sage
Genealogy and birth.
Kapil was the son of Kardam Prajaapati, son of Brahmaa, born to him from
his wife Devahooti, grand-daughter of Brahmaa and the daughter of
Swaayambhuv Manu. Svayambhuva Manu got two sons named Uttaanpaad and
Priyavrat and had three daughters named Aakooti, Devahooti and Prasooti.
These daughters were married to Prajaapati Ruchi, Prajaapati Kardam and
Prajaapati Daksh respectively. Prajaapati Ruchi and his wife Aakooti had
a boy named Yagya. He was a partial incarnation of Vishnu. Prajaapati
Kardam and his wifw Devahooti had 9 daughters and a son named Kapil who
was a great sage and the celebrated exponent of the Sankhya philosophy.
Prajaapati Daksh and his wife Prasooti got many daughters (Devee Bhagavat,
8th Skandh; Bhaagvat Puraan says 60).
was known as Chakra Dhanus also. (MBH, Udyog Parv, 109/17). After
marrying to Devahooti, Kardam Jee spent their honeymoon in the air
traveling throughout the world. Devahooti then delivered 9 daughters and
a son named Kapil. Kardam Jee gave his daughters to Mareechi and the
other sages in marriage.
Brahmaa's son was Manu and Manu's daughter Devahooti's one daughter was
Anasooyaa who was married to Atri Rishi. She had three sons - Brahmaa,
Vishnu and Shiv born in Human form as Som (Brahmaa), Dattaatreya Vishnu)
and Durvaasaa (shiv) in their Ansh form.
Brahmaa - Atri - lineage leads to the last 9th Avataar to Krishn in Yadu
Vansh. Before 5119 + year.
Brahmaa - Mareechi - Kashyap - two wives Diti and Aditi. Diti's sons are
Daitya (Asur or Demons) - Hiranyaaksh, Hiranyakashyap etc.
And Aditi's 33 sons are Devtaa - 12 Aaditya or Soorya gods (including
Varun), 11 Rudra, 8 Vasu, Dyaut etc.
When God and
Devtaa have to be born in human form, He and other gods need earthly
mother or mothers (in human form).
There has been said 8,400,000 (Lakh Chauraasee- 84 Laakh = 8.34 Millions)
Yoni (birth lineage of all life forms or species)
A birth needs mother, so all life forms has different Yoni according to
the Yoni of mother.
Linage of Devtaa - Devtaa descends from Manu (Maanav - Human) as
Devahooti, Anasooyaa etc.
Sometimes even Gods have to be born as Asur, eg Vishnu as
Shankhchood - read
about Tulasee and
Sometimes Asur also are born in Devtaa linage in Human (Manu) form.
Mother Lineage Abhimanyu was born as the son of Arjun (Nar or man) and
Subhadraa (sister of Krishn). Further this linage is carried forward as
Pareekshit (Saved By Krishn in MBH from Brahmastra of Ashwatthaamaa),
then his son Janamejaya and the further generation of Aarya in Kali Yug
are recorded in Aarya King lineage by Dayaanand Saraswatee see the books
of Dayaanand Saraswatee lineage.
About Lord Krishn
Although all Puraan says Lord Krishn was born on the midnight of Bhaadrapad
Krishn Ashtamee. When at the midnight? at 00:00 minute IST as we all celebrate
in all temples? No, No, No. Wait a minute, It was midnight of Mathuraa kingdom
of Kans, and not the midnight of Vaaraanasee or any other town's time, Indian
Standard Time. This time has difference of about 19 minutes. According to details
in Puraan, Rohinee Nakshtra, Uditam Lagna, Mathuraa 27 deg 28' N, 77 min 41' E,
IST time zone 82 deg 30' with difference of (82 min 30' - 77 min 41' = 4 min 49'.
So the time difference of Mathuraa and IST = 19 min and 16 sec). Exact birthplace
location in the Temple area is 27 min 30' N, 77 min 40' E. See the astronomical
sky map at the midnight tonight at 00:00 - on IST 00:00. In Vaaraanasee Moon rises
to Horizon but not in Mathuraa, so birth time was not at IST midnight. While Mathuraa
Midnight time 00:00 it rises to above horizon showing the correct time of Janm of
Krishn. People change everything, dates times Horoscopes everything but cannot change
the stars and Planets in the SKY. can not ask the Moon to rise early at IST 00:00 time
to celebrate Janmaashtamee. We have to realize and accept the facts of sky planets and
stars there in the sky and not on the papers.
Krishn Was Born in the Rohinee Nakshatra
Bhaagvat Puraan, 10th Skandh, 3rd Chapter, every thing has been explained that
Moon was rising in horizon in Rohinee Nakshtra Lagna. Although all planets'
description is not given in Puraan, but if we make some imaginary calculation
only and not described in the Puraan. Many are in favor that though birth was
celebrated in Gokul on the Ashtamee, Krishn was born in the night so was it was
Saptamee as Asthamee starts after sunrise only. Thinking that it is partially
right, because Ashtamee starts after sunrise, but How can we say that Nand Jee
came to know about the birth of Krishn, after the sunrise and they did not wake
up before sunrise? They were not Soorya Vanshee, they woke up early in the morning
before sunrise and then only the birth of Krishn was known to them. "PARODE"
before sunrise and that was Ashtamee. Nand Jee might have celebrated His birth on
Navamee or maybe it was second Ashtamee (Adhik Tithi Ashtamee).
Dwaarakaa was the residence of Krishn. This is the place where Krishn
was staying. This is the same place where Sudaamaa met Him and gave the
gift of "Tandul-Pohaa" (Rice). So it is call "Bhent Dwaarakaa"
also. Dwaarakaa Island, also known as Shankhodharaa, is situated in the
Gulf of Kutch. The island has a temple dedicated to Krishn. Early historic
settlement remains have been located on the island which may be dated back
to 3rd century BC on the basis of a potsherd inscribed with 'Nandaakaash'
in the Mauryan Braahmee script. The remains of old city of Dwaarakaa has
been found near Sauraashtra belonging to 3000 BC.
was born in Dwaapar Yug (Iron Age) on Ashtamee of Bhaadrapad Krishn
Paksha, in 3228 BC at midnight of Mathuraa time, not the midnight of
present Indian Standrad Time (Mathuraa midnight time is 18 minutes later
than than that of IST - means 12.18 AM). According to some scholars,
Krishn was born on Wednesday, the 8th day of second fortnight in Sravana
month in the year of Vishwaavasu around 3227 BC, also known as Dwaapur
Yug. July 19th 3228 BC to be more accurate.
for 125 years and disappeared on February 18th 3102 BC on the New Moon
night of Phaalgun. Phaalgun hukla Doyaj, at the place called Moksh Peepal
on the bank of Hiran River, in Bhalka Teerth in Somnaath Patan Veeraaaval.
Pushya Full Moon Day to Bahudhaanya Pushya Full Moon Day, it was 36 years
and adding 0-2-15 days, it was Pramadi Bright 1st Day, when Kali Yug started
and Krishn finished his Avatar. (B.C 3102-2-20 at 2-27-30 PM) - Seven days
later, on Bright 7th Day, Dwaarakaa city was submerged in the Ocean. Sapt Rishi
were in Maghaa Star at that time, 75 years prior to Kali Yug and remained there
for 25 years after Kali Yug.
25 years after the passing away of Krishn the Saptarshi left the Maghaa
Nakshatra, and went to the Aashleshaa Nakshatra. At the same time
Pareekshit also died and Yudhishthir also left for heaven. (Its
reference is yet to be located)
Bhagavaan Krishn died on 17-2-3102 BC Ujjain midnight time when Kali Yug
started 2 days and 2h 27m 30s later on Chaitra Shukla Pratipadaa
started. 6 months and 11 days after the death of Krishn, Pareekshit was
crowned on 22-8-3102 BC when Jaya Samvatsar started according to Soorya
Siddhaant system. Then Yudhishthir and other Paandav went for Abhyudaya,
so, count from this day is called Jaya-Abhyudaya Shak, in which at least
5 inscriptions of Pareekshit are available for grant on solar eclipse
day of 27-11-3104 BC (89th year in Jaya-Abhyudaya Shak). Yudhishthir
died in 3076 when Saptarshi left Maghaa Nakshatra and Laukik era started
in Kashmeer. This is written in Raaj Taranginee (1.51 and 1.52), but
George Buhler has omitted it and made it his own discovery after
changing some words. Original line in Raaj Taranginee chapter 1 was-
I. Yudhishthir etc went to heavens when 25 years passed in Kali."
[This was changed to (this line) and this means that in Kali Yug year 25
Saptarshi went to heavens. This is meaningless as Saptarshi are always
in sky. That was only to facilitate manipulation. [This verse no longer
exists in printed book of Raaj Taranginee, but all calculations of
Kalhan are based on this verse only. Unless it existed, there was no
other source for Buhler.]
verses have been changed in this passage below - Some verses about Kali
era are given below -
The following 2 verses were published in Indian Antiquary, June 1901 -
(a) Grant at Muni - Vndaarak on Tungabhadraa bank.
I think there is nothing wrong in the Raaj Taranginee verses 1.51 and
1.52. Yudhisthir installed Pareekshit on the throne in 3102 BCE, ie, at
the start of the Kali Yug and the Paandav left for Vanavaas. After 25
years, they left for heaven in 3077 BCE (-3076). Gonand-I, the first
king of Kashmeer was killed by Lord Balaraam and Daamodar-I, the son of
Gonand-I was killed by Krishn. Pareekshit, the son of Abhimanyu,
defeated (killed?) Gonand-II and annexed Kashmeer to his kingdom. His
descendents ruled Kashmeer till the given period.
