1-Daughters of Kardam Rishi
Maitreya Jee said - "Hey Vidur Jee, Manu had
two sons - Priyavrat and Uttaanpaad and three daughters - Aakooti, Devahooti and Prasooti.
Aakooti was married to Ruchi Prajaapati according to
Putrikaa Dharm. She gave birth to a couple. The man Yagya who was the Avataar of Vishnu and
the woman Dakshinaa was the Ansh Avataar of Lakshmee Jee. Manu brought Yagya to his home. When
Dakshinaa was of marriageable age, she expressed her desire to be married to Yagya Bhagavaan.
Yagya was married to her and they produced 12 sons - Tosh, Pratosh, Santosh, Bhadra, Shaanti,
Idaspati, Idhm, Kavi, Vibhu, Swanh, Sudev and Rochan. All these children became "Tushit"
Devta in Swaayambhuv Manvantar. In the same Manvantar Mareechi etc were Saptarishi, Bhagavaan
Yagya was the King of Devtaa (Raajaa Indra), and Priyavrat and Uttaanpaad were Manu's sons. So
this Swaayambhuv Manvantar [this was the 1st Manvantar] was full of Manu and Shataroopa's
Manu's second daughter Devahooti was married
to Kardam Rishi, and his third daughter Prasooti was married to Brahmaa's son Daksh Prajaapati.
His descendents are also scattered all over the world.
Kardam Jee had nine daughters. Their descendents'
description is as follows:
(1) Kalaa and Mareechi had two sons - Kashyap
and Poornimaa. Poornimaa had two sons - Viraaj and Vishwag, and one daughter - Devakulyaa (she
appeared as Devanadi Gangaa Jee from the water after washing the feet of Shree Hari in her
(2) Anasooyaa and Atri Rishi had three sons -
Dattaatreya, Durvaasaa, and Chandramaa. They were Ansh-Avatar of Bhagavaan Vishnu, Shankar
and Brahmaa respectively.
Vidur Jee asked - "Tell me, why did
these three Devtaa incarnate in Atri Muni's house." Maitreya Jee said - "When
Brahmaa Jee ordered Atri Muni to produce children, then he went to Riksh named Parvat to
do Tap with his wife. At that time he stood on one leg for 100 years. He prayed that
Eeshwar should give him children like Himself. Pleased with his Tap, the three Dev,
Brahmaa, Vishnu and Mahesh came to his Aashram. Since all the three Dev were there,
Muni's heart got alighted with their glow. He greeted them prostrating in front of
them them and worshipped them saying - "I greet you. Tell me who are you among
yourselves to whom I called, because I meditated only one Bhagavaan for getting
children? They how come that you three appeared before me? Tell me the secret of
your coming here."
Devtaa said - "Hey Braahman, Whatever you
think, it has to be true, so it should happen like that only. Of which Jagadeeshwar you were
meditating on, He is we three. You will have three sons born from our part and all will be world
famous." After giving this Var the three went to their Lok. So Chandramaa was born from
Brahmaa's part, Dataatreya was born from Vishnu's part and Durvaasaa was born from Shankar's
part. Now you listen to Angiraa's children.
(3) Shraddhaa and Angiraa had two sons - Bhagavaan
Utathya Jee and Brahaspati Jee, (they became famous in Swaarochish Manvantar) and four daughters -
Sineewalee, Kuhoo, Raakaa, and Anumati.

Maharshi Agastya and Mahaatapaswee Vishravaa. Agastya Jee became Jatharaagni in his second life.

Kumbhkarn, and Vibheeshan.
(5) Gati and Pulah had three sons - Karmshreshth,
Vareeyaan and Sahishnu.
(6) Kriyaa and Kratu had sixty thousand Baalkhilyaadi Rishi.
(7) Arundhatee (Oorj) and Vashishth had seven
Brahmarshi - Chitraketu, Surochi, Virajaa, Mitra, Ulban, Vasubhradyaan and Dyumaan. His second
wife also had Shakti etc several sons.
(8) Chitti and Atharvaa had one son named Dadhyang
(Dadheechi) whose another name was Ashwashiraa.
(9) Khyaati and Bhrigu had two sons - Dhaataa and
Vidhaataa and a daughter - Shree. Meru Rishi married his two daughters - Aayati and Niyati to

Maarkandeya Rishi and Praan had Muni
Vedshiraa. Bhrigu Jee had a son named Kavi, who had a son named Ushanaa or Shukraachaarya Jee.
Thus I told you about Kardam Rishi's daughters' children. Whoever listens to it his all sins
are destroyed soon."

proud sons - Paawak, Pavamaan and Shuchi who were like Agni in qualities. All these three
sons eat the food which is offered in Yagya. These three sons produced 45 types of Agni. So these
