One day the king went to the forest in search of such a sage who could suggest him (the king) some remedy or the other for getting a son. While wandering in the forest, one day the king Mahijit came across a great sage whose name was Lomash. Having known the reason of the king's wandering in the forest, Lomash Rishi advised him to observe the fast on Shravan Shukla Ekadashi.
