They both were poor and had no money but they had the heart of always helping anyone who came to their house as a guest. They fed people who were starving, provided clothes to the naked and gave shelter to the homeless. One day, the husband named Sumedha thought of leaving the city so that he could get a job and find a way to earn money. He wanted to further use the money to help others. Also with every passing day it was becoming difficult for the couple to live in poverty. But the wife stopped him by saying that they might have done some evil deeds in their past lives because of which they are not wealthy. Also she believed that when they have repaid for all their sins and when the right time comes, even they will have money to sustain and to help others. Sumedha agreed with his wife and stayed in the same city.

One day a sage named Kaundilya visited their house and the couple treated him very well. They provided him food and honored him as their guest. He was very impressed with their dedication but he was worried looking at their financial state. He told them to ask for anything to which the couple replied that they wanted to know a way to earn and have money. He thus told them to observe the fast known as Parama Ekadashi. He also advised them that the right way of observing the fast and its benefits. The fast will remove their poverty and also the effects of the sins they performed in their previous birth.
