Dear Sudalaimuthu Palaniappan,
Muir cites Matsya Purana 132 [98-118], and Kaksivat is indeed cited
there [at 110]. I'm very sorry that I can't send you the whole passage
on internet. I don't have scanning equipment, and the passage is too
long for my sore fingers to type them all in. I don't see anything of
much significance here. It is just a list of names. But if you need
the full passage I would be happy to photocopy the relevant pages and
mail them to you. If this helps you, just send me your postal address
off-list. Or, if you need citation of only a brief passage I could send
that to you by email.
