Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 3.24.19
loke kapila ity ākhyāḿ
gantā te kīrti-vardhanaḥ
ayam — this Personality of Godhead; siddha-gaṇa — of the perfected sages; adhīśaḥ — the head; sāńkhya-ācāryaiḥ — by ācāryas expert in Sāńkhya philosophy; su-sammataḥ — approved according to Vedic principles; loke — in the world; kapilaḥ iti — as Kapila; ākhyām — celebrated; gantā — He will go about; te — your; kīrti — fame; vardhanaḥ — increasing.
Your son will be the head of all the perfected souls. He will be approved by the ācāryas expert in disseminating real knowledge, and among the people He will be celebrated by the name Kapila. As the son of Devahūti, He will increase your fame.
Sāńkhya philosophy is the philosophical system enunciated by Kapila, the son of Devahūti. The other Kapila, who is not the son of Devahūti, is an imitation. This is the statement of Brahmā, and because we belong to Brahmā's disciplic succession we should accept his statement that the real Kapila is the son of Devahūti and that real Sāńkhya philosophy is the system of philosophy which He introduced and which will be accepted by the ācāryas, the directors of spiritual discipline. The word susammata means "accepted by persons who are counted upon to give their good opinion."
