One day, they handed over their kingdom to their minister (Mantri) and went to the forest. They thought to commit suicide. But then the King realized that there is no bigger sin than suicide. Then, they heard the voices reciting Vedas and moved in that direction. When they reached there, they met hermits (Rishi), who told them the importance of Pausha Putrada Ekadashi.
