Refinement of Light – Children of Kalā and Marīci

Kardama’s daughter Kalā (The Refiner) and her husband Marīci (The Lightray) had a boy named Kaśyapa (The Sunray) and a girl named Pūrṇimā (The Moonlight). Kaśyapa had many children; we will discuss this later. Pūrṇimā had two sons, named after two important qualities of light: Viraja (The Illuminator – primarily a quality of sunlight) and Viśvaga (Ever-present – primarily a quality of moonlight, for moonlight brings illumination everywhere, even into the night). Pūrṇimā also had a daughter named Devakūlya (The Divine River) who would become a divine river and wash Hari’s feet.
