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. – user1195 Jun 17 '17 at 0:17

    one way - kanya-daan of your valid kanya to a valid brahmachari gets you brahmaloka according to mantra 'kanya kanaka sampanna.. brahma loka jigeeshaya' – mar Jun 17 '17 at 4:02
  • @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? – Vishvam Jun 17 '17 at 12:25
  • is it just a philosophical concept? – Bandeep Rabha Jun 17 '17 at 17:40

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 demigod 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? – Wikash_ Jun 20 '20 at 22:40
  • Yes, Yogic power, as told in Sanskrit. You can also read about Krishna-Arjuna meeting Lord Siva from the Mahabharata. @Wikash_ – hanugm Jun 21 '20 at 2:39
  • What is there to find? – Wikash_ Jun 21 '20 at 14:02
  • @Wikash_ similar scenario of going together along with Yoga. – hanugm Jun 21 '20 at 16:54
  • Can you add that to your answer? – Wikash_ Jun 21 '20 at 18:57
