ṚKṢAŚṚṄGA - ऋक्षशृङ्ग

The younger son of Dīrghatapas who was performing tapas in Mandāravana on the northern part of Kāśī. Since he was killed by Citrasena, all others committed suicide. But Dīrghatapas who was left behind collected their bones, and deposited them in the sacred Śūlabhedatīrtha. Skanda Purāṇa says that consequently they attained Heaven.
