Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 9.2.35-36
kṛśāśvāt somadatto 'bhūd
yo 'śvamedhair iḍaspatim
iṣṭvā puruṣam āpāgryāḿ
saumadattis tu sumatis
kṛśāśvāt — from Kṛśāśva; somadattaḥ — a son named Somadatta; abhūt — there was; yaḥ — he who (Somadatta); aśvamedhaiḥ — by the performance of aśvamedha sacrifices; iḍaspatim — unto Lord Viṣṇu; iṣṭvā — after worshiping; puruṣam — Lord Viṣṇu; āpa — achieved; agryām — the best of all; gatim — the destination; yogeśvara-āśritām — the place occupied by great mystic yogīs; saumadattiḥ — the son of Somadatta; tu — but; sumatiḥ — a son named Sumati; tat-putraḥ — the son of him (Sumati); janamejayaḥ — was named Janamejaya; ete — all of them; vaiśāla-bhūpālāḥ — the kings in the dynasty of Vaiśāla; tṛṇabindoḥ yaśaḥ-dharāḥ — continued the fame of King Tṛṇabindu.
The son of Kṛśāśva was Somadatta, who performed aśvamedha sacrifices and thus satisfied the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Viṣṇu. By worshiping the Supreme Lord, he achieved the most exalted post, a residence on the planet to which great mystic yogīs are elevated. The son of Somadatta was Sumati, whose son was Janamejaya. All these kings appearing in the dynasty of Viśāla properly maintained the celebrated position of King Tṛṇabindu.
Thus end the Bhaktivedanta purports of the Ninth Canto, Second Chapter, of the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, entitled "The Dynasties of the Sons of Manu."
