त्रिविष्टपं महेन्द्राय यज्ञभागान् समाददु: ॥ १४ ॥
yācamānāya no daduḥ
Upon Rajī’s death, Indra begged Rajī’s sons for the return of the heavenly planet. They did not return it, however, although they agreed to return Indra’s shares in ritualistic ceremonies.
Rajī conquered the kingdom of heaven, and therefore when Indra, the heavenly king, begged Rajī’s sons to return it, they refused. Because they had not taken the heavenly kingdom from Indra but had inherited it from their father, they considered it their paternal property. Why then should they return it to the demigods?
