sarve dākṣāyaṇā nṛpa
pitrā proktāḥ prajā-sarge

apṛthak — alike in; dharma-śīlāḥ — good character and behavior; te — they; sarve — all; dākṣāyaṇāḥ — the sons of Dakṣa; nṛpa — O King; pitrā — by their father; proktāḥ — ordered; prajā-sarge — to increase the population; pratīcīm — we stern; prayayuḥ — they went to; diśam — the direction.
My dear King, all the sons of Prajāpati Dakṣa were alike in being very gentle and obedient to the orders of their father. When their father ordered them to beget children, they all went in the western direction.
