VṚKA I   A son born to Dhṛṣṭaketu, the king of Kekaya by his wife Dūrvā. [Bhāgavata, Skandha 9].
VṚKA II   A son of Śrī Kṛṣṇa. born by his wife Mitravindā. [Bhāgavata, Skandha 10].
VṚKA III   An asura. This asura wanted to bring the Devas under his control. “How to achieve it? The only way is to please one of the three god-heads.” The asura saw Nārada and asked him which of the three god-heads could easily be pleased. Nārada replied that it was Śiva. Vṛka resolved to please Śiva and began to do penance. He cut each of his organs and offered it in the fire as oblation. At last when Vṛkāsura was beginning to cut his head to offer it in fire, Śiva made his appearance, and asked him what his wish was. The boon he requested for, was that any one whose head he touched with his finger should die instantly. Śiva granted that boon. The asura decided to try the boon, on the giver himself first. Terrified at this, Śiva began to run. The asura chased him. At last Śiva sought protection from Viṣṇu. Assuming the form of a boy, Mahāviṣṇu stood on the way and stopped Vṛkāsura, who was running after Śiva. The boy asked him why he was running. The asura told the boy everything. Then the boy laughed and said “Oh! Asura! What Śiva said was a lie. He has no divine power now. He was making fun of you. Not an ant would die by the touch of your fingers. You just try on your head and see for yourself.” Hearing this the asura became dejected. He thought what the boy said was true. The poor creature touched his own head with his finger. The moment he touched his head, he fell down dead. [Bhāgavata, Skandha 10]. This story has similarity with that of Bhasmāsura. (See under Bhasmāsura).
