DHARMASVA(धर्मस्व)

  • A Brahmin. Once this Brahmin was coming home with water from the Gaṇges. On the way he saw Kāpakalpa, the servant of merchant Ratnākara, being killed by an ox. Though Kāpakalpa was a sinner, his end aroused pity in the heart of the Brahmin. So he sprinkled the Ganges-water on the body of Kāpakalpa, who instantly regained life and energy. The Brahmin who saw the power of Ganges-water began to worship the Ganges from that day onwards. It is mentioned in [Padma Purāṇa, Kriyā Khaṇḍa, Chapter 7], that finally the Brahmin got a boon from the Ganges that only uttering the name of the Ganges should he meet with death.
