1a) Śaryāti (शर्याति).—A son of Vaivasvata Manu. A saintly king who gave a discourse on the second day of Angiraś Yajña. Father of twins Ānarta and Śukanyā: with the latter he went once to the āśrama of Cyavana. In an ant-hill the girl saw two luminous objects and little knowing that they were the eyes of the sage, she pricked them by a thorn. There was an overflow of blood and this disabled all the attendants of the king from answering calls of nature. On enquiry the king found out the mistake committed by his daughter and persuaded the sage to excuse her, by offering her in marriage to him. Taking leave of them he returned to the city.1 Desirous of performing a sacrifice, Śaryāti called on the āśrama of his son-in-law after some time and found a young man seated on his daughter's side little knowing that the sage had changed his form due to the blessings of Aśvins: the king admonished his daughter for her misbehaviour. But when he heard how Cyavana got back his youth, he was pleased and hugged his daughter.2 Father of three sons: his greed for more territory.
