Ancestrals – Prasūti’s Grandchildren Through Svadhā

Prasūti’s daughter Svadhā married the Ancestral Pitṛ, who takes many forms. In the forms of Agnisāttva (“Offerings of Fire”) and Ajyapā (“Offerings of Butter”) the Ancestral Pitṛ accept offerings through the sacred fire. In the forms of Barhiṣada (“Offerings of Grass”) and Saumya (“Offerings of Soma juice”) the Ancestral Pitṛ accept offerings without sacred fire.

From all these Pitṛ, self-controlled, self-sustaining, self-possesed Svadhā conceived two daughters who were expert spiritualists, full of supreme knowledge and realization. She named the daughters Vayunā (“Wisdom’s Goal”) and Dhāriṇī (“The Upholder”).
