The bear remained loyal to the king and to the word agreed upon. During the King's turn, the lion repeated its request to drop the sleeping bear and he would be spared if dropped. Being selfish, he dropped down it as prey to the lion. Before reaching the ground, the falling bear assumed its real form of Yaksha and cursed the king to go mad and suffer for the sin of breach of trust. The curse at one worked on him. He started babbling, crying and roaming about in the forest listlessly. His miserable plight reached the ears of his father and people. They sought the help of sages and priests. On being advised that he would be cured of his lunacy, if he were to take bath in the Pushkarini situated in the Seven Hills; they made an intensive search for it, and when bathed in the Pushkarini, he regained his sanity and enjoyed a happy life. Such is the efficacy of the water of the Pushkarini.

The second episode is embodied in the epic Mahabaratha. A certain brahmin by name Kasyapa renowned for his mastery over Ayurveda, was successfully curing all the ailments, inclusive of snake bite. When he was sent for to save King Parikshit bitten by Taksha, a powerful serpent, he did not oblige the dying king, due to the bribes in the form of Jewels he received from Taksha and so Parikshit died. A doctor according to scriptures should save patients including his inveterate enemies too with proper medication, if he has them with him, if not he incurs sin.
