tato ’yajan manur devam
apatyartham harim prabhum
lebhe sva-sadrsan dasa
tatah—thereafter; ayajat—worshiped; manuh—Vaivasvata Manu; devam—unto the Supreme Personality of Godhead; apatya-artham—with a desire to get sons; harim—unto Hari, the Supreme Personality of Godhead; prabhum—the Lord; iksvaku-purva-jan—of whom the eldest was named Iksvaku; putran—sons; lebhe—got; sva-sadrsan—exactly like himself; dasa—ten.
Then, because of this desire for sons, the Manu known as Sraddhadeva worshiped the Supreme Lord, the Personality of Godhead, the Lord of the demigods. Thus he got ten sons exactly like himself. Among them all, Iksvaku was the eldest.
