I read that King Kakudmi with his daughter Revati reached Brahma Loka experiencing time-dilation. Can anyone tell me how they managed to travel?

    It happens through tapasya and yoga.

  • @What do you mean by valid brahmachari? I don't have deep knowledge regarding saints but I believe brahmachari is the one who never gets married. If this is true then how one can do kanya-daan to him?

1 Answer 1


King Kakudmi reached Brahma Loka with his daughter Revathi with the help of his yogic powers

It can be inferred from the following words of Narada:

prapto yoga-balenapi brahmalokam shubhavaham kanya-varam pariprashöum brahmanam prananama ha

By his mystic power he traveled to Brahmaloka. His intention to ask for a proper husband for his daughter, he bowed before the god Brahma

[7, 6.3: Lord Balarama's Wedding, Garga Samhita]

    I find that vague. What are mystic yogic powers? Have other people used yogic powers?

  • Yes, Yogic power, as told in Sanskrit. You can also read about Krishna-Arjuna meeting Lord Siva from the Mahabharata. @Wikash_
