NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 14 - INCARNATION OF KAPILA

 DASAKAM - 14 - KAPILA AVATHARAM






After the Lord's Varaha incarnation, Brahma's son, Swayambhu Manu spent his life span peacefully without any trouble, always immersed in deep devotion to Lord. Meanwhile, Prajapati Kardama, born from Brahma's own shadow, worshipped Lord Narayana for ten thousand years, awaiting to take up the work of 'creation' of the species, as instructed by Lord Brahma. 

Lord Narayana appeared before Kardama, seated on the divine Garuda.The Lord blessed him to marry Devahuti, daughter of Manu and said that couple would beget nine daughters.The Lord Himself would thereafter, be born to him as the tenth child with the name, KAPILA. Thereafter, the Lord promised "Moksha" to Kardama.

Advised by Sage Narada, Swamyambhu Manu got his daughter Devahuti married to Kardama. The couple were blessed with nine daughters and Kardama then awaited for Lord to be born to them as Kapila. 

After Kapila was born, Kardama retired to forest to perform penance. Kapila became a great philosopher and taught the essence of his teachings to his own mother, Devahuti.

Bhattathiri requested Lord who came to earth as Kapila to teach mankind, the means for attainment of salvation, to cure him from his illness. Lord nodded his head and acknowledged his request immediately.
