About Kashyap

He was the father of the Devas, Asuras, Nagas and all ofhumanity. He married Aditi, with whom he fathered Agni, theAdityas, and most importantly Lord Vishnu took his fifth Avataras Vamana, the son of Aditi, in the seventh Manvantara.[2]With his second wife, Diti, he begot the Daityas. Diti and Aditi were daughters of King Daksha Prajapati and sisters to Sati,Shiva's consort. Kashyap received the earth, obtained byParashurama's conquest of King Kartavirya Arjuna and henceforth, earth came to be known as "Kashyapi". He was also the author of the treatise Kashyap Samhita, orBraddha Jivakiya Tantra, which is considered, a classical reference book on Ayurveda especially in the fields of Ayurvedic pediatrics, gynecology and obstetrics.[3] It can be safely assumed that there were many Kashyaps and the name indicates a status and not just one individual.
