19. -"An ablest (Sthanadhipa), called Karttikarashi, who resembled a conglomerate
(rashi) of austerities in (human) shape and who took away the sins of his (spiritual)
dependants by merely looking at them, became an ornament of Gargya's line."
Verse 20. -"(Next) arose compassionate Valmiki rashi, who owed
his spiritual birth to the favour of that (Kartikarashi's) lotus-hands, and who hallowed
speech by the arrangement of his words and the road to the sanctuaries by the marks of his
steps, which (arrangement of marks) were pure like his mind (i.e. he preached well and
performed many pilgrimages)."
Verse 21. -"He graciously appointed a young ascetic,
called Tripurantaka who sanctified the four quarters of the horizon in consequence of his
desire to visit other sacred places."
These verses make us acquainted with three teachers of the
Gargya branch of the Lakulisha Pashupatas, who apparently were in succession, abbots or
spiritual directors at some sacred place or of some matha in Gujarat (sthana has both the
meanings); possibly the place where they resided may have been Karshana.
