The Helpful King-Mahijit

The Lord says that once there was a benevolent king named Mahijit who used to take good care of his kingdom. In fact, the King considered the people as part of his own family. He used to serve the people/sages of his kingdom and punish those who committed crimes. The people of his kingdom were happy under his leadership. The King Mahijit was childless. Mahijit was a kind and softhearted person. He always helps the poor and needy and ensures that his followers live in peace and safety. People wondered why he is being deprived of a child.

The Krishnapingala Chaturthi Vrat

One fine day, the people of the village requested the King to let them find the solution to his problem. In the forest, they came across a sage named Lomash. After listening to the problem of a king, the wise sage asked them to tell their King to observe a Vrat on the Krishnapingala Chaturthi in the month of Ashadha with complete rituals.

The Sweet Fruit Of Vrat

As per the advice of a sage, the King observed a Vrat on the day of Krishnapingala Chaturthi. Surprisingly, a few days later, his wife Sudakshina conceived a child. Thus, King became a father as a result of observing this vrat.

After concluding the story, Shri Krishna also asked Yudhishthira to keep a Vrat to achieve success in his life.
