(2) Kalmāṣapāda asked a boon from Vasiṣṭha, viz. that he (V.) might be pleased to beget a son on his (K.'s) wife, so that he might pay back the debt to Ikṣvākus and for the continuation of the line of Ikṣvākus (ikṣvākūṇāṁ tu yenāham anṛṇaḥ syāṁ dvijottama/…ikṣvākukulavṛddhaye) 1. 168. 1112;

Ikṣvāku.--In the Rigveda this name occurs but once,[१] and in a doubtful context. It is clear, however, that it denotes a prince; later interpretations make Asamāti, whose name is read into the hymn, an Ikṣvāku prince.[२] In the Atharvaveda[३] also the name is found in only one passage, where it is uncertain whether a descendant of Ikṣvāku, or Ikṣvāku himself, is referred to; in either case he seems to be regarded as an ancient hero. In the Pañcaviṃśa Brāhmaṇa[४] mention is made of Tryaruṇa Traidhātva Aikṣvāka, who is identical with the Tryaruṇa Traivṛṣṇa of the Bṛhaddevatā,[५] and with Tryaruṇa Trasadasyu in the Rigveda.[६] The connection of Trasadasyu with the Ikṣvākus is confirmed by the fact that Purukutsa was an Aikṣvāka, according to the Śatapatha Brāhmaṇa.[७] Thus the Ikṣvāku line was originally a line of princes of the Pūrus. Zimmer[८] places them on the upper Indus, but they may well have been somewhat further east.[९] Later Ikṣvāku is connected with Ayodhyā
