The Sage ffered 1000 Ahutis (oblations of ghee to the sacrificial fire after chanting the mantra each ime) every day, for one full year. 'On the last day, when Purnahuti (the final offering) was erformed, Lord Narayana was pleased with the austerity of the ritualistic observances of the age, and appeared in the sacrificial fire in a blissful mood to offer boons. The Sage prayed for a noble son.
