SB 9.9.2

From Vanisource

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


dilīpas tat-sutas tadvad
aśaktaḥ kālam eyivān
bhagīrathas tasya sutas
tepe sa sumahat tapaḥ


dilīpaḥ—named Dilīpa; tat-sutaḥ—the son of Aṁśumān; tat-vat—like his father; aśaktaḥ—being unable to bring the Ganges to the material world; kālam eyivān—became a victim of time and died; bhagīrathaḥ tasya sutaḥ—his son Bhagīratha; tepe—executed penance; saḥ—he; su-mahat—very great; tapaḥ—austerity.


Like Aṁśumān himself, Dilīpa, his son, was unable to bring the Ganges to this material world, and he also became a victim of death in due course of time. Then Dilīpa's son, Bhagīratha, performed very severe austerities to bring the Ganges to this material world.
