As the cut off heads were once again joined to the body, as if by skillful plastic surgery and transplantation by an expert doctor - Vaidya, Lord Maheswar was addressed by Ravana as Vaidyanath - Prince of doctors. Seeing him lost in ecstatic raptures, Lord Maheswar advised him to carry it home without putting on earth till he reached his kingdom. Promising to abide by the condition, Ravana started homewards holding the linga in hands with due piety. 

But for gods, Ravana's obtaining the Atmalinga and becoming immortal by the boons posed a problem. Sure Ravana would besiege heaven and torture them. So they became nervous. They at one resorted to strategy to foil his efforts of installing the Sivalinga in Lanka. Accordingly Lord Mahavishnu taking the form of a brahmin met him on the way, when Ravana developed all on a sudden some stomach trouble urging him to ease out at once; for, according to the strategy, Varuna the Lord of Rain entered his body and worked out commotion in the bowels. Treating the chance meeting of brahmin at that juncture as a bolt from the blue, he requested the latter to hold the Sivalinga for a short while so that he could attend to the calls of nature.
