9-Bhavishya Puraan, 3-Pratisarg (4), p 327-329
Part of Pratisarg Parv of Bhavishya Puraan is very important with the viewpoint
of history. In this part history of all the four legs of Sat Yug, Tretaa Yug,
Dwaapar Yug and Kali Yug is given. Besides, the history of the previous births
of many Aachaarya, saints, Bhakt poets, is also given. They are said to be the
Avataar of 12 Aaditya, 11 Rudra, 8 Vasu, or 2 Ashwinee Kumaar. Special treatment
is given to Chaitanya Mahaaprabhu and that he got absorbed in Jagannaath Jee.
But there are some incoherencies also which create doubts in their originality.
Origin of Braahman-Shukla Vansh
(Chap 3) Soot Jee said - "Now I will describe Shukla Vansh. When Shree Krishn left Dwaarakaa and had gone to His Param Dhaam, Kali Yug set in. After 4,400 years of Kali Yug had passed, and Bhaarat was afflicted by Mlechchh. Nyooh named Yavan had spread Mlechchh all over the world. When 1,000 years of Kali Yug had passed Indra sent a Braahman named Kaashyap in Brahmaavart. Dev Power Aaryaavatee married him and they had 10 sons. Later Kaashyap came to Mishra Desh (Egypt). He brought 10,000 Mlechchh, who were born in Egypt, to his place and made his disciple. He inhabited them in the middle of Saraswatee and Drishdwatee rivers after seven Puree got destroyed. Then he called his son Shukla, preached him Manu Dharm and sent him to do Tap on Raivat mountain. He taught Manu Dharm to his other nine sons and disciples too.
Shukla pleased Vaasudev by his Tap and Vaasudev showed him His Dwaarakaa Nagaree. After approximately 2,000 years passed, he went to Arbud Parvat by Agni Dwaar and defeated Bauddh with the help of his three brothers and Dwij. He again inhabited Dwaarakaa by the grace of Krishn.
By the grace of Naaraayan, Shukla had a son named Vishwaksen (20 yrs)
son was Udaya - he inhabited a beautiful city named Udayapur
Raashtrapaal had two sons - Vijaya and Prajaya. Prajaya left his home and did Tap for Shaaradaa Devee on the banks of Gangaa for 12 years. Shaaradaa Devee appeared before him in the form of a girl (Kanyaa) playing a flute and riding a horse. She asked him - "O prince, Why are you worshipping Shivaa? You will soon get thr fruit of your Tap by me." Prajaya said - "I salute you. Please give me a new city. Hearing this Devee gave him a beautiful horse and she went away towards south playing her flute. Prajaya followed her on that horse closing his eyes towards west. He arrived at a place where there was a Pakshiraat, named Markan. He got scared to see that so he opened his eyes. He saw a beautiful city. In its northern side was Gangaa, in its south was Paanduraa, in its west was Eeshsaritaa, and in its east was Markan bird's place. This place was a little odd shaped. Because of being built by a girl (Kanyaa) and being a little odd shaped, it became famous by the name as Kaanyakubj. Prajaya ruled for 10 years.
son was Venuk - because of playing flute, his name was Venuk. He married
Thus Vaishyapaal, Kumbhpaal and Shukla Vansh ended here. After Lakshan of Shukla Vansh died, all principal kings died in Kurukshetra, The remaining kings became spoiled with Varnsankar.
* Note - Was he the same Anangpaal whose daughter Keertimaalinee was married to Someshwar and had three sons? See last page.
Parihaar Vansh and Shoor Vansh of Bengal
(Chap 4) Soot Jee said - "Hey Shaunak Jee, Now you listen to Parihaar Vansh. Parihaar, knower of Atharv Ved, won all Bauddh and worshipped Devee. Pleased by his worship, Devee built a beautiful city of 1 and 1/2 Yojan extension on Chitrakoot mountain. Kali was imprisoned in this city and that is why Kali never enters this city, that is why this city got known as Kalinjar. Parihaa ruled there for 12 years.
Parihaar's son was Gaurvarmaa (12 yrs) - later he gave this kingdom to his younger brother
Rudravarmaa's son was Bhojvarmaa - he abandoned his father's kingdom
Gangaadatt's son was Shaarngdev (10 yrs) - he went to Gaud Desh
Later all kings who were born from the part of Suyodhan (Duryodhan), were killed by Sahoddeen (Shaahbuddeen Goree) in Kurukshetra. Parihaar's son Ghorvarmaa ruled in Kalinjar. His son was Shaardool. All his descendents were known as Shaardooleeya. By the grace of Mahaamaayaa the whole land was filled with kings born in Shaardool Vansh.
Hey Shaunak Jee, As all sins are destroyed by remembering Soorya and Chandra Vansh, in the same way this Agni Vansh also makes a man holy. Now I will describe the Vansh in which Hari Himself was born.
