Śaralomā (शरलोमा).—A maharṣi, the father of Dāśūra. Vasiṣṭha once told Śrī Rāma the story of Dāśūra to prove that the world is all an illusion.
Dāśūra was the only son of Śaralomā, a muni, who performed tapas in the plains of the mountain in Magadha. Dāśūra too did tapas in another part of the mountain. While the father and the son were living happily the father entered samādhi and the son wept over the loss of his father. Then a forest-nymph comforted him with celestial advice.
