बृहदश्व उवाच ।
इति तथ्यं सती ज्ञात्वा हलमार्गात्त सिन्धुर्त: ॥३९८॥
हिमालयान्न प्रययौ पावितात्मा परं नदी ।
पुनस्तां तु महाभागां ऋषि: प्रोवाच कश्यप: ॥३९९॥
अवश्यं हलमार्गेण गन्तव्यं सुभंग त्वया ।
अन्यथा देश एवाऽयं सरस्त्वमुपयास्यति ॥४००॥
भूयो भूयश्चोदमाना कश्यपेन सरिव्दरा ।

HAṀSA I(हंस)

  • An incarnation of Mahā Viṣṇu in Kṛtayuga. He instructed great sages like Sanaka on yoga in the presence of Brahmā. He is also called yajña. [Bhāgavata 11th Skandha]. Hamsa, who was a prajāpati as well advised the Sādhyadevas about the means to attain salvation and the advice is known as Haṁsagītā. [Śānti Parva, Chapter 288]. HAṀSA II. A son born to Kaśyapa of his wife, Ariṣṭā. He was a Gandharva and it is believed that Dhṛtarāṣṭra was an aṁśāvatāra of this Gandharva. [M.B. Ādi Parva, Chapter 6, See also under Aṁśāvatāṛa]. HAṀSA III.
    1) General.
    A minister of Jarāsandha. Haṁsa and Ḍiṁbhaka were the sons of Brahmadatta, the chief of Sālva, and they were adepts in archery. Paraśurāma was their preceptor. [Harivaṁśa 3, 103]. The Mahābhārata calls Haṁsa's brother Ḍibhaka.
    2) Education.
    Vicakra and Janārdana were intimate friends of Haṁsa from their very infancy, of whom Janārdana was the son of Mitrasaha, a friend of Brahmadatta. Haṁsa, Ḍimbhaka and Janārdana had their education together and their marriages also were conducted at the same time. After some time Śiva presented them many weapons like Rudrāstra, Mahe- śvarāstra and Brahmaśirāstra, and also two attendants for self-protection. [Harivaṁśa 3, 105].
    3) Curse of Durvāsas.
    Swollen-headed and haughty on account of Śiva's boon, Haṁsa and Ḍiṁbhaka turned out to be a nightmare to the world, and they once tried to give trouble to Durvāsas, who cursed them to be killed by Mahāviṣṇu. Sometime later the sage himself informed Śrī Kṛṣṇa about this curse of his.
    4) Death.
    The Haṁsa brothers began an aśvamedha (Horse Sacrifice) and deputed Janārdana to collect the tax thereof. Śrī Kṛṣṇa alone refused to pay the tax with the result that Haṁsa clashed with Kṛṣṇa who killed Ḍimbhaka and kicked Haṁsa down to Pātāla. He died there, in Pātāla of snake-bite. [Harivaṁśa 3, 128].
    5) Grief of Jarāsandha.
    Haṁsa's death caused much grief to Jarāsandha, and for many years after it, he shed tears over the death of his friend. Even at the time when Bhīmasena, during his triumphal tour of the east, attacked Jarāsandha he remembered the dead Haṁsa and Ḍimbhaka. [Sabhā Parva, 13, 37].
