40. Vraj

42. Sangar
2750 B.C.E
King Sangar of Ayodhya and his descendants symbolised virtue, strength and the power of meditation and prayer. The valiant King Sangar (also referred to as King Sagar) is said to have performed the Ashwamedha sacrifice to appease the Gods.

In Valmiki’s Ramayana, the dramatic story of the King’s ensuing plight and dishonour was narrated. He died a disconsolate King who was immersed in sorrow as he grieved over the loss of his sons. King Sagar’s wife Sumati is said to have given birth to 60,000 children, who created the seas. Another of his wives, Koshini gave birth to another son called Asmanjas(Check Spelling) whose sons formed the genealogical tree for the Mewar dynasty. (Rajprahasti, page 7)

45. Bhagirath
2650 B.C.E
It is said that redemption to the family’s honour came with Bhagirath whose devotion brought down from the heavens the holy Ganga, which flowed from the toe of Vishnu. With the holy waters, Bhagirath performed the rites for his ancestors and secured for them their entry into heaven. Ganga was also known as Bhagirathi, a testimony to Bhagirath’s pious perseverance.

In the Ramayana and Mahabharata, and in puranic literature, innumerable stories talk about the warrior-Kings of Ayodhya who were upholders of dharma. But when they strayed from the path of righteousness, they had to pay the price for it, as the law of Karma did not allow any distinction. The dilemmas of dharma, the dangers of adharma, the need for perpetual vigilance to avoid sinful conduct were the eternal moral codes of Hinduism epitomised in the lives of these illustrious Suryavanshi Kings.

64. Ram
2100 B.C.E
Lakshman (Angad & Chandraketu) Bharat (Taksh & Pushkal) Shatrughan (Subahu & Shatrughati)
Ram, was an avatar of Vishnu and remained the highest in virtue and wisdom. The epic Ramayana is an epic, which celebrated his life. He was born to King Dashrath-II in Ayodhya in the state of Kosala. An introductory verse in the epic says, “He who reads and repeats this holy life-giving Ramayana is liberated from all his sins and exalted with all his posterity to the highest heaven.”

Ram’s graceful frame and virile beauty, his strength and courage, the purity of his heart, his compassion and deep wisdom and his statesmanship made him the ideal Kshatriya King.

With his wife, Sita, Ram was the embodiment of purity, tenderness and conjugal affection.

With his brothers - Lakshman, Bharat and Shatrughan, he exemplified respect and trust within the family.

With his enemies, Ram was the personification of the powerful Kshatriya King, who adhered to dharma and did not cower before evil.

He was thus revered as Maryada Purshottam, one who was the upholder of the finest traditions of Mankind. Ram manifested the establishment of Hindu dharma in society and polity. This was known as Ram-Rajya, the epitome of the monarchical state.

Ram’s greatest virtue was in upholding the duties of the King even as he experienced hardships, sorrow and conflicts of life on earth. His triumph over the forces of evil, personified by Ravana of Lanka, was the hope for the world.

The kingdom of Kosala reached its zenith in the reign of Ram.

Ram and Sita gave birth to Kush and Luv

Kush and Lav became kings of south and north Kosala. Kush builts Kusathali in the Vindhyas and Lav reigned at Shravasti.

Kosala receded in importance after Ram’s departure.

Videha, Anga and Magadha in the east, Kekaya, Sindhu, Sauvira in the north, Saurashtra in the west and the Dakshinatya states gained in might and importance during this period.

Kush and his wife gave birth to Athithi whose successors formed the geneological tree for the Mewar dynasty. (Rajprashasti, Page 7)
