A disciple of sage Samika.
It was Samika’s son Srngi, who cursed Pariksit to death by snake-bite. Sringi cursed that Pariksit, who had thrown a dead snake on the neck of his father while in meditation, would be bitten to death by snake within seven days. Samika sent word about the curse through his disciple Gauramukha to Pariksit.
