COLLATION OF THEOSOPHICAL GLOSSARIES
List of Title Abbreviations (in alphabetical order)
TG K. -- The eleventh letter in both the English and the Hebrew alphabets. As a numeral it stands in the latter for 20, and in the former for 250, and with a stroke over it ([[symbol K with a line over it]]) for 250,000. The Kabalists and the Masons appropriate the word Kodesh or Kadosh as the name of the Jewish god under this letter.
TG Ka (Sk.). According to Max Muller, the interrogative pronoun "who?" -- raised to the dignity of a deity without cause or reason. Still it has its esoteric significance and is a name of Brahma in his phallic character as generator or Prajapati (q.v.).
SD INDEX Ka (Egy), astral body corresponds to nephesh (Heb) II 633
TG Kabah or Kaaba (Arab.). The name of the famous Mahommedan temple at Mecca, a great place of pilgrimage. The edifice is not large but very original; of a cubical form 23 x 24 cubits in length and breadth and 27 cubits high, with only one aperture on the East side to admit light. In the north-east corner is the "black stone" of Kaaba, said to have been lowered down direct from heaven and to have been as white as snow, but subsequently it became black, owing to the sins of mankind. The "white stone", the reputed tomb of Ismael, is in the north side and the place of Abraham is to the east: If, as the Mahommedans claim, this temple was, at the prayer of Adam after his exile, transferred by Allah or Jehovah direct from Eden down to earth, then the "heathen" may truly claim to have far exceeded the divine primordial architecture in the beauty of their edifices.
TG Kabalah (Heb.). The hidden wisdom of the Hebrew Rabbis of the middle ages derived from the older secret doctrines concerning divine things and cosmogony, which were combined into a theology after the time of the captivity of the Jews in Babylon. All the works that fall under the esoteric category are termed Kabalistic.
KT Kabbalah (Heb.), or Kabbala. "The hidden wisdom of the Hebrew Rabbis of the middle ages derived from the older secret doctrines concerning divine things and cosmogony, which were combined into a theology after the time of the captivity of the Jews in Babylon." All the works that fall under the esoteric category are termed Kabalistic.
FY Kabala, ancient mystical Jewish books.
WG Kabala (Hebrew), the esoteric meaning of the scriptures and the traditions of the Jews, derived by them from the Chaldeans. As, in the Hebrew language, the consonants only were usually written and the vowels omitted, the letters being at equal distances and without punctuation, and each letter representing also a numeral, the real meaning could be concealed under an apparently real wording.
IN Kabbalah (Heb) The esoteric "tradition" or theosophy of the Jews.

TG Kabalist. From Q B L H, KABALA, an unwritten or oral tradition. The kabalist is a student of "secret science", one who interprets the hidden meaning of the Scriptures with the help of the symbolical Kabala, and explains the real one by these means. The Tanaim were the first kabalists among the Jews; they appeared at Jerusalem about the beginning of the third century before the Christian era. The books of Ezekiel, Daniel, Henoch, and the Revelation of St. John, are purely kabalistical. This secret doctrine is identical with that of the Chaldeans, and includes at the same time much of the Persian wisdom, or "magic". History catches glimpses of famous kabalists ever since the eleventh century. The Mediaeval ages, and even our own times, have had an enormous number of the most learned and intellectual men who were students of the Kabala (or Qabbalah, as some spell it). The most famous among the former were Paracelsus, Henry Khunrath, Jacob Bohmen, Robert Fludd, the two Van Helmonts, the Abbot John Trithemius, Cornelius Agrippa, Cardinal Nicolao Cusani, Jerome Carden, Pope Sixtus IV., and such Christian scholars as Raymond Lully, Giovanni Pico de la Mirandola, Guillaume Postel, the great John Reuchlin, Dr. Henry More, Eugenius Philalethes (Thomas Vaughan), the erudite Jesuit Athanasius Kircher, Christian Knorr (Baron) von Rosenroth; then Sir Isaac Newton, Leibniz, Lord Bacon, Spinosa, etc., etc., the list being almost inexhaustible. As remarked by Mr. Isaac Myer, in his Qabbalah, the ideas of the Kabalists have largely influenced European literature. "Upon the practical Qabbalah, the Abbe de Villars (nephew of de Montfaucon) in 1670, published his celebrated satirical novel, 'The Count de Gabalis', upon which Pope based his 'Rape of the Lock'. Qabbalism ran through the Mediaeval poems, the 'Romance of the Rose', and permeates the writings of Dante." No two of them, however, agreed upon the origin of the Kabala, the Zohar, Sepher Yetzirah, etc. Some show it as coming from the Biblical Patriarchs, Abraham, and even Seth; others from Egypt, others again from Chaldea. The system is certainly very old; but like all the rest of systems, whether religious or philosophical, the Kabala is derived directly from the primeval Secret Doctrine of the East; through the Vedas, the Upanishads, Orpheus and Thales, Pythagoras and the Egyptians. Whatever its source, its substratum is at any rate identical with that of all the other systems from the Book of the Dead down to the later Gnostics. The best exponents of the Kabala in the Theosophical Society were among the earliest, Dr. S. Pancoast, of Philadelphia, and Mr. G. Felt; and among the latest, Dr. W. Wynn Westcott, Mr. S. L. Mac Gregor Mathers (both of the Rosicrucian College) and a few others. (See "Qabbalah".)

TG Kabiri (Phoen.), or the Kabirim. Deities and very mysterious gods with the ancient nations, including the Israelites, some of whom -- as Terah, Abram's father -- worshipped them under the name of Teraphim. With the Christians, however, they are now devils, although the modern Archangels are the direct transformation of these same Kabiri. In Hebrew the latter name means "the mighty ones", Gibborim. At one time all the deities connected with fire -- whether they were divine, infernal or volcanic -- were called Kabirian.
IN Kabiri (Gk, kabeiroi, possibly of Phrygian origin) Divine instructors of arts, sciences, and agriculture, linked with cosmic and terrestrial fire; also, regents of seasons and cosmic cycles.

But between the etymological meaning of the word, and its subsequent significance in application to the Kadeshim (the "priests" set apart for certain temple rites) -- there is an abyss. The words Kadosh and Kadeshim are used in II. Kings as rather an opprobrious name, for the Kadeshuth of the Bible were identical in their office and duties with the Nautch girls of some Hindu temples. They were Galli, the mutilated priests of the lascivious rites of Venus Astarte, who lived "by the house of the Lord". Curiously enough the terms Kadosh, etc., were appropriated and used by several degrees of Masonic knighthood.

TG Kalahansa or Hamsa (Sk.). A mystic title given to Brahma (or Parabrahman); means "the swan in and out of time". Brahma (male) is called Hansa-Vahan, the vehicle of the "Swan".
SKv Kala-hansa, Kali-hansa, Hansa-Vahana, Brahmanda Kala-hansa, literally meaning 'the Swan in Eternity,' is a title of Brahma (masculine), the 'Self of the Solar System.' The ancient Aryans symbolized this 'First Cause' of our Solar System as an invisible mystical Bird who dropped into Space an Egg, which became the Solar Universe or Brahmanda, the anda or 'Egg' of Brahma. The Kala or 'Eternity' represents the great age of Brahma's life or a Maha-Manvantara. The word Hansa, or Hamsa, interpreted esoterically is equivalent to aham-sa -'I am HE,' a highly occult phrase implying that universal mystery of the identity of the Solar System and all in it with the essence of Brahman, the highest Principle or Self of the Galactic Universe. Brahman (neuter), 'the Universal Self' or 'He who breathes forth the various Brahmas or Solar Selves,' is called the Hansa-Vahana, or 'the Bearer of the Swan.' Vahana is derived from the verb-root vah -- to carry. Brahman (neuter) is also called Kali-Hansa, 'the Black Swan,' suggesting the unrevealed Divine Wisdom of this great Being which is Darkness to mankind.

In its esoteric meaning this sweet-voiced bird is our Higher Ego.

TG Kalki Avatar (Sk.). The "White Horse Avatar", which will be the last manvantaric incarnation of Vishnu, according to the Brahmins; of Maitreya Buddha, agreeably to Northern Buddhists; of Sosiosh, the last hero and Saviour of the Zoroastrians, as claimed by Parsis; and of the "Faithful and True" on the white Horse (Rev. xix., 2). In his future epiphany or tenth avatar, the heavens will open and Vishnu will appear "seated on a milk-white steed, with a drawn sword blazing like a comet, for the final destruction of the wicked, the renovation of 'creation' and the 'restoration of purity'". (Compare Revelation.) This will take place at the end of the Kaliyuga 427,000 years hence. The latter end of every Yuga is called "the destruction of the world", as then the earth changes each time its outward form, submerging one set of continents and upheaving another set.

FY Kalpa, the period of cosmic activity; a day of Brahma, 4,320 million years.
WG Kalpa, a day of Brahma, or 1,000 yugas, a period of 432,000,000 years of mortals. (See Yuga.)
OG Kalpa -- (Sanskrit) This word comes from a verb-root klrip, meaning "to be in order"; hence a "period of time," or a "cycle of time." Sometimes a kalpa is called the period of a mahamanvantara -- or "great manvantara" -- after which the globes of a planetary chain no longer go into obscuration or repose, as they periodically do, but die utterly. A kalpa is also called a Day of Brahma, and its length is 4,320,000,000 years. Seven rounds form a Day of Brahma, or a planetary manvantara. (See also Brahma, Manvantara)
Seven planetary manvantaras (or planetary cycles, each cycle consisting of seven rounds) form one solar kalpa (or solar manvantara), or seven Days of Brahma -- a week of Brahma.
The difficulty that many Western students have had in understanding this word lies in the fact that it is unavoidably a "blind," because it does not apply with exclusive meaning to the length of one time period alone. Like the English word age, or the English phrase time period, the word kalpa may be used for several different cycles. There is likewise the maha-kalpa or "great kalpa," which frequently is the name given to the vast time period contained in a complete solar manvantara or complete solar pralaya.
GH Kalpa A period of time, a cycle: a generalizing term and therefore used for time-periods of different lengths; chronologers, however, compute a Kalpa by the Life of Brahma -- minor kalpas are numerous. A Mahakalpa is often made the equivalent of a Manvantara. (The following word is derived from the verbal root:) klrip, to be in order. Bhagavad-Gita, W. Q. Judge, p. 65)
SKo Kalpa, Maha-Kalpa A Kalpa is a cycle of time; from the verb-root klrip -- to be in order. Like the English word cycle, Kalpa may be used for several different periods of time. It is sometimes used synonymously with 'A Day of Brahma,' a period of 4,320,000,000 years. A Solar Kalpa, or 'Seven Days of Brahma' is usually called a Maha-Kalpa or Great Kalpa.

OG Kama -- (Sanskrit) "Desire"; the fourth substance-principle of which man's constitution is composed. Kama is the driving or impelling force in the human constitution; per se it is colorless, neither good nor bad, and is only such as the mind and soul direct its use. It is the seat of the living electric impulses, desires, aspirations, considered in their energic aspect. Usually however, although there is a divine kama as well as an infernal one, this word is restricted, and wrongly so, to evil desire almost exclusively.
SKo Kama The Desire-principle in man; derived from the verb-root kam, 'to desire.' Kama is the seat of the driving and electrical forces in man, the basis of action. Kama per se is colorless, neither good nor bad. If this force is used by the impulses of the lower and less evolved parts of our nature, its direction is downward, leading to decay and destruction; if used by the aspirations and desires of the Higher Manas its direction is upward, leading to growth and eternal life. Hence Karna, the fourth of the seven principles in man, has been called the balance-principle, and likened to the sign Libra in the path of the Sun through the Zodiac.
IN Kama (Skt) "Desire"; love in all its ranges, cosmic and human.
SP Kama -- desire. Kama-loka is the world or realm of desire. Kama-rupa is the desire body.

TG Kamadeva (Sk.). In the popular notions the god of love, a Visvadeva, in the Hindu Pantheon. As the Eros of Hesiod, degraded into Cupid by exoteric law, and still more degraded by a later popular sense attributed to the term, so is Kama a most mysterious and metaphysical subject. The earlier Vedic description of Kama alone gives the key-note to what he emblematizes. Kama is the first conscious, all embracing desire for universal good, love, and for all that lives and feels, needs help and kindness, the first feeling of infinite tender compassion and mercy that arose in the consciousness of the creative ONE FORCE, as soon as it came into life and being as a ray from the ABSOLUTE. Says the Rig Veda, "Desire first arose in IT, which was the primal germ of mind, and which Sages, searching with their intellect, have discovered in their heart to be the bond which connects Entity with non-Entity", or Manas with pure Atma-Buddhi. There is no idea of sexual love in the conception. Kama is preeminently the divine desire of creating happiness and love; and it is only ages later, as mankind began to materialize by anthropomorphization its grandest ideals into cut and dried dogmas, that Kama became the power that gratifies desire on the animal plane. This is shown by what every Veda and some Brahmanas say. In the Atharva Veda, Kama is represented as the Supreme Deity and Creator. In the Taitariya Brahmana, he is the child of Dharma, the god of Law and Justice, of Sraddha and faith. In another account he springs from the heart of Brahma. Others show him born from water, i.e., from primordial chaos, or the "Deep". Hence one of his many names, Ira-ja, "the water-born"; and Aja, "unborn"; and Atmabhu or "Self-existent". Because of the sign of Makara (Capricornus) on his banner, he is also called "Makara Ketu". The allegory about Siva, the "Great Yogin", reducing Kama to ashes by the fire from his central (or third) Eye, for inspiring the Mahadeva with thoughts of his wife, while he was at his devotions -- is very suggestive, as it is said that he thereby reduced Kama to his primeval spiritual form.
GH Kamadeva The god of love (literally the god Kama). The first-born in the Vedas: "Him neither devas, nor pitris, nor men have equalled. Thou art superior to these and forever great," chants the Atharva-Veda; while the Rig-Veda sings: "Desire first arose in It, which was the primal germ of mind; and which sages, searching with their intellect, have discovered in their heart to be the bond which connects entity with non-entity" (x, 129). Kamadeva is the lord of the Apsarasas (the celestial nymphs, consorts of the Gandharvas, q.v.), and is represented as a handsome youth riding on a parrot, attended by the Apsarasas, one of whom bears his banner distinguished by the Makara (q.v.). His bow is made of sugar-cane, and his bow-string a line of bees, while each one of his arrows is tipped with a different flower. The Taittiriya Brahmana has it that Kamadeva was the son of Dharma (moral religious duty, piety, justice) and of Sraddha (faith); in another hymn he is born from the heart of Brahma and therefore called the Self-Existent (Atma-bhu), or the Unborn (Aja).
Kamadeva is in the Rig-Veda "the personification of that feeling which leads and propels to creation. He was the first movement that stirred the ONE, after its manifestation from the purely abstract principle, to create," (Secret Doctrine, II, p. 176).
"As Eros was connected in early Greek mythology with the world's creation, and only afterwards became the sexual Cupid, so was Kama in his original Vedic character," (ibid.). (Bhagavad-Gita, W. Q. Judge, p. 74 -- mentioned as 'the god of love.')

TG Kamadhatu (Sk.). Called also Kamavatchara, a region including Kamaloka. In exoteric ideas it is the first of the Trailokya -- or three regions (applied also to celestial beings) or seven planes or degrees, each broadly represented by one of the three chief characteristics; namely, Kama, Rupa and Arupa, or those of desire, form and formlessness. The first of the Trailokyas, Kamadhatu, is thus composed of the earth and the six inferior Devalokas, the earth being followed by Kamaloka (q.v.). These taken together constitute the seven degrees of the material world of form and sensuous gratification. The second of the Trailokya (or Trilokya) is called Rupadhatu or "material form" and is also composed of seven Lokas (or localities). The third is Arupadhatu or "immaterial lokas". "Locality", however, is an incorrect word to use in translating the term dhatu, which does not mean in some of its special applications a "place" at all. For instance, Arupadhatu is a purely subjective world, a "state" rather than a place. But as the European tongues have no adequate metaphysical terms to express certain ideas, we can only point out the difficulty.
WG Kama-Dhuk, a mythological animal, the cow of plenty.
GH Kamaduh (dictionary form or 'crude form': nominative case. Kamadhuk) The mythical cow belonging to the sage Vasishtha, produced by the gods at the churning of the cosmic ocean. (See Ananta.) She is supposed to grant all desires and hence is termed the 'cow of plenty.' The alternative form, Kamadhenu, gives the clue to this meaning: kama, desire, wish; dhenu, milch-cow. In interpretation of the above allegory: the reference is to the appearance of the Earth in space as the mother of all that later appears on it. (Bhagavad-Gita, W. Q. Judge, p. 23)
TG Kamaloka (Sk.). The semi-material plane, to us subjective and invisible, where the disembodied "personalities", the astral forms, called Kamarupa remain, until they fade out from it by the complete exhaustion of the effects of the mental impulses that created these eidolons of human and animal passions and desires. (See "Kamarupa".) It is the Hades of the ancient Greeks and the Amenti of the Egyptians, the land of Silent Shadows; a division of the first group of the Trailokya. (See "Kamadhatu".)
KT Kamaloka (Sans.) The semi-material plane, to us subjective and invisible, where the disembodied "personalities," the astral forms called Kama Rupa, remain until they fade out from it by the complete exhaustion of the effects of the mental impulses that created these eidolons of the lower animal passions and desires. (See Kama Rupa.) It is the Hades of the ancient Greeks and the Amenti of the Egyptians -- the land of Silent Shadows.
FY Kama Loka, abode of desire, the first condition through which a human entity passes in its passage, after death, to Devachan. It corresponds to purgatory.
WGa Kamaloka, sometimes written Kama Loka and Kama -Loca. Literally, the place, world, or sphere of desire, from Kama, desire, and loka, place, world, or sphere. That place where the body of passions and desires holds sway after the death of the physical body. It is the same as the Greek Hades and Egyptian Amenti, where the astral shades of the dead remain until they disintegrate or fade out. As the earthly plane is where the material body disintegrates, so Kamaloka is that one wherein the astral body in its turn dies and fades away. Kamaloka is much the same as the purgatory of the Christians, and in it remain the bodies of the dead infused with the desires and passions, for which reason is the term Kamarupa. The disincarnated Ego sheds its astral body in Kamaloka, and from that state passes to Devachan; hence the state is intermediate between earth-life and the joys of the Devachanic state.
OG Kama-Loka -- (Sanskrit) A compound which can be translated as "desire world," which is accurate enough, but only slightly descriptive. It is a semi-material plane or rather world or realm, subjective and invisible to human beings as a rule, which surrounds and also encloses our physical globe. It is the habitat or dwelling-place of the astral forms of dead men and other dead beings -- the realm of the kama-rupas or desire-bodies of defunct humans. "It is the Hades," as H. P. Blavatsky says, "of the ancient Greeks, and the Amenti of the Egyptians, the land of Silent Shadows."
It is in the kama-loka that the second death takes place, after which the freed upper duad of the human being that was enters the devachan. The highest regions of the kama-loka blend insensibly into the lowest regions or realms of the devachan; and, conversely, the grossest and lowest regions of the kama-loka blend insensibly into the highest regions of the avichi.
When the physical body breaks up at death, the astral elements of the excarnate entity remain in the kama-loka or "shadow world," with the same vital centers as in physical life clinging within them, still vitalizing them; and here certain processes take place. The lower human soul that is befouled with earth-thought and the lower instincts cannot easily rise out of the kama-loka, because it is foul, it is heavy; and its tendency is consequently downwards. It is in the kama-loka that the processes of separation of the monad from the kama-rupic spook or phantom take place; and when this separation is complete, which is the second death above spoken of, then the monad receives the reincarnating ego within its bosom, wherein it enjoys its long rest of bliss and recuperation. If, contrariwise, the entity in the kama-loka is so heavy with evil and is so strongly attracted to earth spheres that the influence of the monad cannot withdraw the reincarnating ego from the kama-rupa, then the latter with its befouled soul sinks lower and lower and may even enter the avichi. If the influence of the monad succeeds, as it usually does, in bringing about the second death, then the kama-rupa becomes a mere phantom or kama-rupic spook, and begins instantly to decay and finally vanishes away, its component life-atoms pursuing each one the road whither its attractions draw it.
SKo Kama-loka, Kama-rupa, Bhuta Kama-loka is literally the 'Desire-world'; a compound of kama -- desire, and loka -- world. Kama-loka is the invisible astral region which penetrates and surrounds the earth. The ruling force in it is desire devoid of intelligence. It is the realm of purgatory through which all entities must pass after death. Therein the Reincarnating Ego must suffer for the evil done on earth, and thus free itself of its grosser astral and kamic clothing in order that it may rise higher. Good men usually pass through the Kama-loka practically unconsciously, whereas men not so good awaken to a semi-dream state of an unhappy nature, and evil-minded men suffer a vivid nightmare. What is known as the 'Second Death' takes place in Kama-loka. This death is the separation between the immortal Reincarnating Ego and the body of lower mental and psychical energies. When the Reincarnating Ego is thus freed it enters the Devachan accompanied by the aroma of all its past experiences, while the lower part remains in Kama-loka as the Kama-rupa or 'Desire-body,' and soon disintegrates if left alone and not drawn to mediumistic seances, etc. This Kama-rupa is often called a Bhuta, a 'spook' or 'has-been'; for bhuta is the past participle of the verb-root bhu -- to be; hence the 'shell' from which the intellectual and spiritual parts have fled.
These four states of Nirvana, Devachan, Kama-loka, and Avichi can be experienced by a man right here on earth while he is awake; and a man in sleep may suffer or enjoy dreams of Kamaloka or Devachan. We are drawn in sleep and death and even in conscious life to the states whither our attractions lead us.

WGa Kama-manas, a compound term used in Theosophical literature to designate the state of mind or manas when closely associated with Kama, or desire; it may therefore be said to be lower manas, as it is mind directed by, and functioning in, desire to a greater extent than in and by -Buddhi.
TG Kamarupa (Sk.). Metaphysically, and in our esoteric philosophy, it is the subjective form created through the mental and physical desires and thoughts in connection with things of matter, by all sentient beings, a form which survives the death of their bodies. After that death three of the seven "principles" -- or let us say planes of senses and consciousness on which the human instincts and ideation act in turn -- viz., the body, its astral prototype and physical vitality, -- being of no further use, remain on earth; the three higher principles, grouped into one, merge into the state of Devachan (q.v.), in which state the Higher Ego will remain until the hour for a new reincarnation arrives; and the eidolon of the ex-Personality is left alone in its new abode. Here, the pale copy of the man that was, vegetates for a period of time, the duration of which is variable and according to the element of materiality which is left in it, and which is determined by the past life of the defunct. Bereft as it is of its higher mind, spirit and physical senses, if left alone to its own senseless devices, it will gradually fade out and disintegrate. But, if forcibly drawn back into the terrestrial sphere whether by the passionate desires and appeals of the surviving friends or by regular necromantic practices -- one of the most pernicious of which is mediumship -- the "spook" may prevail for a period greatly exceeding the span of the natural life of its body. Once the Kamarupa has learnt the way back to living human bodies, it becomes a vampire, feeding on the vitality of those who are so anxious for its company. In India these eidolons are called Pisachas, and are much dreaded, as already explained elsewhere.

FY Kamarupa, the principle of desire in man; the fourth principle.
WG Kama-rupa, one of the human "principles"; "desire-form." (kama, desire; rupa, form.)
OG Kama-Rupa -- (Sanskrit) A compound word signifying "desire body." It is that part of man's inner constitution in which dwell or inhere the various desires, affections, hates, loves -- in short, the various mental and psychical energies. After death it becomes the vehicle in the astral worlds of the higher principles of the man that was. But these higher principles are nevertheless scarcely conscious of the fact, because the rupture of the golden cord of life at the moment of the physical death plunges the cognizing personal entity into a merciful stupor of unconsciousness, in which stupor it remains a longer or shorter period depending upon its qualities of spirituality or materiality. The more spiritual the man was the longer the period of merciful unconsciousness lasts, and vice versa. After death, as has been frequently stated elsewhere, there occurs what is called the second death, which is the separation of the immortal part of the second or intermediate duad from the lower portions of this duad, which lower portions remain as the kama-rupa in the etheric or higher astral spheres which are intermediate between the devachanic and the earthly spheres. In time this kama-rupa gradually fades out in its turn, its life-atoms at such dissolution passing on to their various and unceasing peregrinations. It is this kama-rupa which legend and story in the various ancient world religions or philosophies speak of as the shade, and which it has been customary in the Occident to call the spook or ghost. It is, in short, all the mortal elements of the human soul that was. The kama-rupa is an exact astral duplicate, in appearance and mannerism, of the man who died; it is his eidolon or "image."

GH Kansa A king of the Yadava line of the Lunar Dynasty, ruler of the Bhojas, reigning at Mathura, who deposed his own father, Ugrasena. Ugrasena was the brother of Devaka, the latter being the father of Devaki mother of Krishna. Kansa is usually called the uncle of Krishna; strictly speaking, however, he is a cousin. In spite of this relationship, he became the avowed enemy of Krishna because a prophecy had been foretold to him that a son of Devaki would cause his death. In order to prevent this from happening, Kansa imprisoned Devaki and Vasudeva in his palace and commanded that all infants born to them should be put to death. Six children were so slain, but a seventh, Balarama, was saved through the connivance of his parents. Then when Krishna was born, his parents escaped from the palace and fled from the city of Mathura, whereupon the enraged Kansa ordered all infant boys in the kingdom put to death; but the parents escaped from the realm with Krishna, and the child was brought up by cow-herds in seclusion. Kansa at length learned that Krishna had escaped destruction and made several attempts to bring about his death: as an instance, he sent Jarasandha, the king of Magadha, to battle with the young Krishna eighteen times, but that monarch was as many times defeated. Krishna finally slew Kansa, as was predicted, restored Ugrasena, but left Mathura and established his kingdom at Dvaraka. (Bhagavad-Gita, W. Q. Judge, p. 121)

WG Kapila, a great Indian sage, who founded the Sankhya school of philosophy.
GH Kapila One of the famous Rishis. There are many sages by the name of Kapila, the last being the founder of the Sankhya (q.v.) philosophy. A legend relates that while Kapila was engaged in meditation in Patala, he was menaced by the sixty thousand sons of Sagara, whereupon the sacred flame which darted from his person immediately reduced the sixty thousand sons to ashes. "That the story is an allegory is seen upon its very face: the 60,000 Sons, brutal, vicious, and impious, are the personification of the human passions that a 'mere glance of the sage' -- the SELF who represents the highest state of purity that can be reached on earth -- reduces to ashes." (Secret Doctrine, II, p. 571)
"There are several well-known Kapilas in the Puranas. First the primeval sage, then Kapila, one of the three 'Secret' Kumaras; and Kapila, son of Kasyapa and Kadru . . . besides Kapila, the great sage and philosopher of the Kali Yuga."
