How can I get rid of this evil act? As soon as upon a time, he was seated with the same concern that Gautam Rishi reached him.

Harishchandra saluted him and started narrating his sad story. Listening to the sad story of King Harishchandra, Maharishi Gautam was also very sad and he stated to the king - 'O Rajan! The name of Ekadashi of Krishna Paksha of Bhadas is Aja. You need to fast on that Ekadashi and awaken at night time. It will remove all of your sins. '
