On this Yudhishthra stated, "Prabhu! Listening to the importance of Yogini Ekadashi from your Mukharbind, my eagerness has increased even more, please explain a little bit about it." To this, Lord Krishna said, "O Dharmashrestha! I narrate a story mentioned within the Puranas and listen to it carefully."

Within the city called Alkapuri of heaven, there was the rule of a king named Kubera. He was a very spiritual king and worshiped Lord Shiva. Storm came, no obstacle might stop them from worshiping Lord Shiva. A gardener named Hem used to arrange flowers to worship Lord Shiva. He used to go and give flowers to Kubera every day before worship.

Hem loved his spouse Vishalakshi very a lot. Someday Hem brought flowers for worship but on the way he thought that if there is time for worship, why not go residence. Then he took the way to his home.

After coming house, he became obsessed with his spouse and started Ramana with her. At the same time, the time of worship was running out and the king was getting distracted due to the absence of flowers. Due to this, the time of worship passed and Hem did not reach with the flower, then the king sent soldiers to find it.

The soldiers returned and told that he was a great queen. He was doing Raman with his spouse. Listening to this, the anger of the king reached the sky at seven. He immediately asked Hem to grab him. Now Hem trembled and stood before the king. The angry king said, 'O lowly majesty! You have disrespected Lord Shiva by working hard. I curse you that the disconnection of the woman will be tolerated and there can be leprosy in the dead.
