One day when Champavati went out to go to the ashrams of the sadhus, the king followed her with a dagger. After going some distance, Champavati went to the ashram of a monk, the king followed her and reached that ashram, but she saw that neither her daughter nor there was any monk in that ashram.
The king felt compelled to come back from the ashram when a heavenly voice called out to the king and told him that his daughter had been taken away as punishment for his actions and to avoid further calamities, she would be given a homage in her honor.
