|Canto 12: The Age of Deterioration||Chapter 1: The Degraded Dynasties of Kali-yuga|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 12.1.14
mauryā hy ete daśa nṛpāḥ
samā bhokṣyanti pṛthivīḿ
mauryāḥ — the Mauryas; hi — indeed; ete — these; daśa — ten; nṛpāḥ — kings; sapta-triḿśat — thirty-seven; śata — one hundred; uttaram — more than; samāḥ — years; bhokṣyanti — they will rule; pṛthivīm — the earth; kalau — in Kali-yuga; kuru-kula — of the Kuru dynasty; udvaha — O most eminent hero.
O best of the Kurus, these ten Maurya kings will rule the earth for 137 years of the Kali-yuga.
Although nine kings are mentioned by name, Daśaratha appeared after Sujyeṣṭha, before the rule of Sańgata, and thus there are ten Maurya kings.
