Viṣṇu Purāṇa | Book 4 - Chapter 21

Chapter XXI

I WILL now enumerate the kings who, will reign in future periods:

The present monarch, Parīkṣit, will have four sons, Janamejaya, Śrutasena, Ugrasena, and Bhīmasena.

The son of Janamejaya will be Śatānīka, who will study the Vedas under Yājnyawalkya, and military science with Kripa; but becoming dissatisfied with sensual enjoyments, he will acquire spiritual knowledge from the instructions of Śaunaka, and ultimately obtain salvation.

His son will be Aśvamedha-datta (a son given by the gods in reward for the sacrifice of a horse); his son will be Asīma-kṛṣṇa; his son will be Nichakra, who will remove the capital to Kauśāmbī, in consequence of Hastināpura being washed away by the Ganges;

his son will be Uṣṇa; his son will be Chitraratha; his son will be Vṛṣṇimat; his son will be Susheṇa; his son will be Sunītha; his son will be Richa; his son will be Nrichakṣu;

his son will be Sukhīhala; his son will be Pariplava; his son will be Sunaya; his son will be Medhāvin; his son will be Nripanjaya; his son will be Mridu; his son will be Tigma;

his son will be Vrihadratha; his son will be Vasudāna; and his son will be another Śatānīka; his son will be Udayana; his son will be Ahīnara; his son will be Khaṇḍapāni; his son will be Niramitra; his son will be Kṣemaka: of him this verse is recited:

"The race which gave origin to Brahmans and Kṣatriyas, and which was purified by regal sages, terminated with Kṣemaka; in the Kali age."
