Flying into irrepressible indignation, he gave a kick on the Lord's chest. Vishnu anon got up and tactfully asked him whether he received any injury to the foot; for, it was a forceful kick against his rock like chest. And confessed that his negligence of protecting the world received just punishment, ending that Brighu must be thanked for reminding his duty. Brighu's purpose ended; and his search bore fruit. But it left disastrous effects in the domestic scene of Lord Vishnu, as Lakshmi is ever abiding in the chest of Lord Vishnu, she received the force of kick. It was an insult to the Goddess of her status and glory. It was inexcusable and unpalatable. Unable to make compromise with it, however much she tried, she left Vaikunta, hurling harsh words on the Lord.

The aftermath of Lakshmi's departure to Bhuloka led many unpleasant situations - Lord Vishnu found void everywhere, and uneasiness started mounting minute by minute. He came down to Seshchala of his own accord to forget the sordid occurrence. Seeking the permission of Adivaraha, his own incarnation, taken to lift the Mother Earth sunk in the ocean, He settled down remaining on, the earth for centuries. Later a theist king to his surprise found his cow milking of their own accord over an ant- hill everyday and returning home dry. On enquiry he found the image of Lord Srinivas underneath the ant-hill. Considering it sacred, and to making it adored by one and all, he built a beautiful shrine for the Lord and installed the icon, thus found. Regular worship went on, and due to the munificent boons granted to the Saranarthis and demonstrating his sports through miracles, the glory of the Lord spread far and wide.
