dārbhya ‘Descendant of Darbha,’ is mentioned in a verse of the Rigveda. verse Roth identifies him with Syāvāśva, but the Brhaddevatā with Rathavīti. The same patronymic is frequently connected with Keśin, and is also applied to Rathaprota. See also Dālbhya.
keśin dārbhya (* descendant of Darbha ’) is a somewhat enigmatic figure. According to the Satapatha Brāh¬mana and the Jaiminīya Upanisad Brāhmana he was a king, sister’s son of Uccaihśravas, according to the latter authority. His people were the Pañcālas, of whom the Keśins must there¬fore have been a branch, and who are said to have been threefold (tvyanīka). A story is told of his having a ritual dispute wτith ṣandika in the Maitrāyanī Samhitā ; this appears in another form in the śatapatha Brāhmana. He was a contemporary of a fellow sage, Keśin Sātyakāmi, according to the Maitrā¬yanī and Taittirīya Samhitās. The Pañcavimśa Brāhmana attributes to him a Sāman or chant, and the Kausītaki Brāh¬mana tells how he was taught by a golden bird. In view of the fact that the early literature always refers to Dārbhya as a sage, it seems doubtful whether the commentator is right in thinking that the śatapatha refers to a king and a people, when a sage alone may well be meant, while the Jaiminīya Upanisad Brāhmana is of no great authority. The latter work may have assumed that the reference in the Kāthaka Samhitā to the Keśin people signifies kingship, but this is hardly necessary.
rathaprota dārbhya (‘Descendant of Darbha’) is mentioned in the Maitrāyaṇī Samhitā perhaps as a king, but possibly as a priest.
rathavīti dārbhya (‘Descendant of Darbha ’) is mentioned once in the Rigveda as residing in places abounding in kine (gomatīranu) far away among the hills, possibly the Himālayas, and as the patron of the singer of the hymn. Later the tradition makes him the king, whose daughter śyāsvāśva won for his wife by his father’s and the Maruts’ aid.
