posted in: English 0


He was one fo the Ritvik in the Sarpasatra of Janamejaya. It was this sage who prophesied through a brahmin that the Sarpasatra (snake sacrifice) would never be complete.


And he bestowed much wealth on Suta Lohitaksa, who was learned in the science of masonry and foundations and who had said at the very commencement of the Snake-sacrifice that a Brahmana would be the cause of its interruption. He gave him wealth and various things, food and wearing apparel.
