The only issue his kingdom faced was lack of rainfall because of which farmers couldn’t grow crops and thus couldn’t earn money. Many humans and animals died due to lack of water.

Chanting Vishnu’s thousand names also prove very beneficial. One should also listen to his teachings.

One can observe the fast for the complete day without consuming any food item or a single meal without grains or cereals can be consumed throughout the day. People who want to perform rituals for their deceased ancestors can do it in the afternoon. Earlier, horse sacrifices were a common practice for the day but nowadays, fire sacrifice has become a part of the ritual.
