pracinabarhisah—of King Pracinabarhi; putrah—sons; satadrutyam—in the womb of Satadruti; dasa—ten; abhavan—became manifest; tulya—equally; nama—name; vratah—vow; sarve—all; dharma—religiosity; snatah—completely merged in; pracetasah—all of them being designated as Pracetas.
King Pracinabarhi begot ten children in the womb of Satadruti. All of them were equally endowed with religiosity, and all of them were known as the Pracetas.
The word dharma-snatah is significant, for the ten children were all merged in the practice of religion. In addition, they possessed all good qualities. One is supposed to be perfect when one is perfectly religious, perfect in the execution of one’s vows to render devotional service, perfect in knowledge, perfect in good behavior, and so on. All the Pracetas were on the same level of perfection.
