KANDU. [Source: Dowson's Classical Dictionary of Hindu Mythology] A sage who was beguiled from long and severe austerities by Pramlocha, a nymph sent from heaven by Indra for this purpose. He lived with her some hundreds of years, which seemed to him only as a day, but he at length repudiated here and "went to the region of Vishnu." Pramlocha gave birth, in an extraordinary manner, to his daughter Marisha (q.v.).
