Marichi - Wish-born Son of Brahma


Marichi is a great sage, a wish-born son of Lord Brahma. According to [Rama:1.70.20], he is the father of Kashyapa. (This conflicts with the usual tradition, that says that Kashyapa is a wish-born son of Lord Brahma). Marichi is also listed in most enumerations as one of the seven great sages, the SaptaRishis.
