He attained youth immedately. For a long time he worshipped lord Śiva at Kāśī. By the grace of lord Śiva, the son of the Earth [i.e., bhūmija], acquired the status of a planet. He went to the heavenly sphere beyond the region of Venus. O sage, thus I have told you the story of Śiva and His separation from Satī. Now listen to the story of His performance of penance”.
