vrddham—when he was old; tam—him; pancatam—death; praptam—who had obtained; mahisi—the queen; anumarisyati—who wanted to die with him and become sati; aurvena—by the great sage Aurva; janata—understanding that; atmanam—the body of the queen; praja-vantam—bore a son within the womb; nivarita—was forbidden.
Bahuka died when he was old, and one of his wives wanted to die with him, following the sati rite. At that time, however, Aurva Muni, knowing her to be pregnant, forbade her to die.
