The king gave the name Anantavīrya to Anuddharā’s son, who had great power, at a great festival”.

After he had paid homage, Daśakandhara sat down in the proper place and listened to a sermon, a channel of nectar to the ears. At the end of the sermon Daśāsya asked the great sage, ‘How shall I die?’ and the Blessed One replied, ‘The death of you, a Prativiṣṇu, will be at the hands of a future Vāsudeva because of a sin connected with another man’s wife, Daśānana’.”;
