kaśyapa A word denoting tortoise, occurs in the Atharva­veda and often later.
kaśyapa Is the name of a sage who is mentioned only once in the Rigveda, but is a common figure in the later Samhitās. He is always of a mythical character, as belonging to the distant past. According to the Aitareya Brāhmana, he anointed King Viśvakarman Bhauvana, and in the Upanisads he is mentioned as a Rsi. The Kaśyapas appear in connexion with Janam- ejaya in the Aitareya Brāhmana.
