Pulaśakti (पुलशक्ति) is the name of king from the Śīlāra dynasty mentioned in the “Prince of Wales museum plates of Chadvaideva”.—Accordingly, “Kapardin’s son was named Pulaśakti, who resembled Pṛthu and was famous like Arjuna. His prowess was well known on the earth. To the feet of that king all his feudatories paid obeisance. To him was born a son, also known as Kapardin (i.e. Kapardin II), who became a king”.

These copper plates (mentioning Pulaśakti) were in the collection of George Da Gunha and was purchased by the Trustees of the Prince of Wales Museum, Bombay, in 1919. The inscription refers itself to the reign of the Śīlāra (i.e. Śilāhāra) Mahāsāmanta Chadvaideva of North Koṅkaṇ. The object of it is to record that Chadvaideva executed the grant which had been made by Vajjaḍadeva, the son of Goggi, who, as shown below, was Chadvaideva’s elder brother and predecessor on the throne.
