 LORD PANDURANGA VITHAL OF PANDHARPUR

He unceremoniously sent his parents away from the house under the pretext of stealing some jewels. Noble parents bore all torments and humiliation, for he was their only issue, and what was more the apple to their eyes. When left to themselves, they proceeded to Kasi to breathe their last at the sacred feet of the Lord Visweswar.

Realisation dawned when he lost all - material and physical wealth due to monoesters of that star, who twinkled more brighter during the day time. The penitent destitute started wandering under the dead weight of disease that the morning star presented to him. It so chanced, he stayed for the night in an asram of great sage Kukkut by name, who listening to his pathetic tale played host for the night. His sleep was distributed in the dead of night by the sweeping sounds of some persons. Waking up, he saw three ugly women briskly sweeping the courtyard of the asram. After watching long, he found them gradually transforming themselves into damsels. Wonder struck, he approached and implored them to tell him about their odd life. They said that they were the holy rivers - Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati and due to accumulation of sins purged of by the sinners in them by bathing, they turn ugly and disease affected by the night. And they purify themselves by sweeping the asram precincts of this sage, who was second to none but himself in filial piety.
