A moneylender had two daughters. Both the daughters used to observe full moon fast. But the eldest daughter used to fast for the full moon and the younger daughter used to observe incomplete fast. The result was that the child of the younger daughter died as soon as she was born. When he asked the pundits the reason for this, they told him that you keep an incomplete fast of Purnima, due to which your children die as soon as they are born. By observing full moon fasting methodically, your children can survive.
On the advice of the pundits, he performed the full full moon fasting methodically. He had a son but died soon after. He made the boy lie on his back and covered the cloth from above. Then the elder sister was called and brought and gave the same pain to sit. When the elder sister started sitting on the pedestal, her ghagra touched the child. The child started crying as soon as he touched the ghagra. The elder sister said - 'You wanted to tarnish me. It would have died if I sat down.' Then the younger sister said, 'It was already dead. It is because of your luck that it has come alive. It is because of your virtue that it has come to life.'
After that, in the city, he made a ruckus to observe full full moon fast.
