इक्ष्वाकुपूर्वजान् पुत्रान्लेभे स्वसदृशान् दश ॥ २ ॥
apatyārthaṁ hariṁ prabhum
lebhe sva-sadṛśān daśa
tataḥ — thereafter; ayajat — worshiped; manuḥ — Vaivasvata Manu; devam — unto the Supreme Personality of Godhead; apatya-artham — with a desire to get sons; harim — unto Hari, the Supreme Personality of Godhead; prabhum — the Lord; ikṣvāku-pūrva-jān — of whom the eldest was named Ikṣvāku; putrān — sons; lebhe — got; sva-sadṛśān — exactly like himself; daśa — ten.
Then, because of this desire for sons, the Manu known as Śrāddhadeva worshiped the Supreme Lord, the Personality of Godhead, the Lord of the demigods. Thus he got ten sons exactly like himself. Among them all, Ikṣvāku was the eldest.
