KAPILMUNI

The sixty thousand sons of Sagar traced the horse to its hiding-place, and, believing the sage to be the author of the theft assaulted him.  The holy man being thus roused opened his eyes and cursed his assailants, who were immediately burnt to ashes and sentenced to hell. A grandson of Sagar, in search of his father and uncles, at last came to Kapilmuni, and begged him to redeem the souls of the dead. The holy man replied that this could only be effected if the waters of Ganga
could be brought to the spot to touch the ashes.

"Now Ganga was residing in Heaven, in the custody of Brahma the Creator, and the grandson of Sagar prayed him to send the goddess to the earth. He died, however, without his supplication having been granted.  He left no issue;  but a son, Bhagirath, was miraculously born of his widow, and through his prayers Brahma allowed Ganga to visit the earth.
