The illustrious Sage Rishyashrunga absorbed in meditation for a while, extreme thoughtfulness about the proceedings of the ritual informed his decision to perform Puthrakameshti Yaga to beget progeny for the King Dasaratha. The proceedings of the Yaga commenced with Vedic chants followed by offerings into the sacred fire. The deities, celestials, Siddhas, Sages, Rishi, Pithrus are pleased at the proceedings of Yaga and assembled in the ritual fire to receive their part of offerings.
The deities approached Lord Brahma and narrated the atrocities of the demon Ravana after obtaining several boons from Lord Brahma. Ravana started harassing the three world’s desires to capture Lord Indra who is the King of supreme deities of the Universe. The demon Ravana turned into haughty after obtaining boons, he tortured Rishis, Sages, and celestials, Gandharvas, Yakshas and Brahmins. Lord Surya, Lord Vayu, Lord Varuna are afraid to perform their duties due to the fear of Ravana. Thus, all the deities sought the protection of Lord Brahma and requested to annihilate the demon Ravana. Lord Brahma memorized the boon offered to Ravana, as per the boon obtained by Ravana it is impossible to kill him by any Gandharva, Yaksha, deities or demons. Ravana had extreme disrespect to human race hence he forgot to mention them while praying for boon, all the deities and sages were extremely happy to listen to Lord Brahma. In the meantime, Lord Vishnu appeared before them on his celestial vehicle Garuda, His four hands were holding conch, mace, lotus and disc respectively, He was elegantly attired in enthralling yellow robes and finest jewels. All the deities and Sages eulogized the glories of Lord Vishnu and pleaded to save the universe from the mayhem caused by demon Ravana, desired the prosperity of the three worlds requested Lord Vishnu to take birth as son of the righteous King Dasaratha, emperor of the Kingdom of Ayodhya who has innumerable possession of Hri/Virtue, Sri/Affluence and Kri/fame. Consequently, Lord Vishnu’s birth as a human through one of the wives of King Dasaratha would destroy Ravana who is impossible to annihilate by any deities, demon, Gandharva and Yaksha. The deities anxiously explained the turmoil caused by Ravana in the lives of Sages, Rishis, Celestial Gandharvas, Apsaras, Siddhas etc… Lord Vishnu pacified the deities and Sages and agreed to take birth as human to eradicate the entire clan of demon Ravana and rule the world for eleven thousand years. The lotus eyed supreme Lord Vishnu decided to manifest as son of the virtuous King Dasaratha. All the deities, Sages, Rishis, Gandharvas, Rudras, celestials praised the divine exposition of Lord Vishnu and prayed to annihilate Ravana and return to the heavenly abode Vaikundha.
