Now listen to another bizarre method, where the defaulter is put to untold suffering both financially, mentally, in addition to becoming unpopular in the society, without which he can not live and thrive in this world. May be, he can take his abode in the icy mountains, where man treads not. Of course, he may seek solace in the company of green verdure and thick foliage of trees. But certainly not among the quadrupeds even. For it is mentioned  in certain mythologies that the four legged - animals too resent seeing the sinner of any brand. They turn their faces aside, if chance brings them face to face with the frauds. The well known episode of a stag refusing even to look at a king whose record of life was anything but honest is narrated in the sthala purana of Alampur. One more kshetra deserves elaborate account in this connection. The erstwhile Jain temple at Dharmasthala presided over by Sri Manjunathaswamy now, was once acting as the highest civil court adjudging the disputes relating to money matters-non payment of debts and deliberate evasion by ill-bred, wicked, dishonest debtors. The verdicts of the temple were divine and all - abiding. The complainant and the defendant took the word of the founder-builder Heggade of the temple as final. He is and was hailed as the virtual God - head of that holy Kshetra and his word was infallible and impartial. This court without appellant jurisdiction disposed of countless civil cases and brought undying fame to the temple. On account of this, the original name of the holy temple was changed from Kuduma to Dharmasthala. Government not only effected this change, but extended all assistance on application.
