During the twelve-year Vanavasa period of the Pandavas, sage Veda Vyasa, the divine poet seer met them in Darukavana to console. In the conversation ensued then, he advised them to obtain Pasupathastra, the most potent of astras from Lord Siva  by doing penance. And assured that it would bring them spectacular victory in the Kurukshetra war going to take place shortly. Choice fell on Arjuna, when 'Who' the fittest among them to obtain it was discussed. Soon Arjuna set out on the mission. As he neared this zone, an yaksha at the behest of Devendra, in the guise of a human, under the name of Trikoti Boyi met and directed him to go to lndrakiiaparvatha for penance. Finding it quite ideal for penance, Arjuna started with all rigour and fervour-- standing on one foot with arms raised over head, surrounded by fire on four sides. A severe one, demanding physical stamina and mental concentration.
