evam kausika-gotram tu
tad dhi caivam prakalpitam
evam—in this way (some sons having been cursed and some blessed); kausika-gotram—the dynasty of Kausika; tu—indeed; visvamitraih—by the sons of Visvamitra; prthak-vidham—in different varieties; pravara-antaram—differences between one another; apannam—obtained; tat—that; hi—indeed; ca—also; evam—thus; prakalpitam—ascertained.
Visvamitra cursed some of his sons and blessed the others, and he also adopted a son. Thus there were varieties in the Kausika dynasty, but among all the sons, Devarata was considered the eldest.
Thus end the Bhaktivedanta purports of the Ninth Canto, Sixteenth Chapter, of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, entitled “Lord Parasurama Destroys the World’s Ruling Class.”
