Sālihotra is said to be the son of the well-known sage Kapila. He was the author of a standard treatise on aśvaśāstra.[1] His āśrama or hermitage had an ageless tree and a pond of sweet water which could immediately quench all hunger and thirst. They had been created by his tapas or power of austerity. Vyāsa, the author of the great epic Mahābhārata, is said to have lived in his āśrama once. The Pāṇḍavas, during their twelve-year exile, visited him and were his guests for a few days.
