About Rishi RICHIKA

A Rishi descended from Bhrigu and husband of Satyavati, son of Urva and father of Jamadagni.

In the Mahabharata and Vishnu Purana it is related that Richika was an old man when he demanded in marriage Satyavati, the daughter of Gadhi, king of Kanyakubja. Unwilling to give her to so old a man, Gadhi demanded of him 1000 white horses, each of them having one black ear. Richika obtained these from the god Varuna, and so gained his wife.

According to the Ramayana, he sold his son Suhansephas to be a sacrifice.
