It is believed that there lived a Muni by the name Vilwamangalam in Divakara. He used to perform lots of pujas and rituals on a daily basis. One day Lord Narayan decided to take the form of a small child and appeared in front of him. He was unknown of this fact and thought of the child as a homeless orphan. He offered to provide him shelter to which the child agreed. But the child also laid the condition that any day he felt a slight glitch of humiliation he would leave him immediately. The child stayed for certain duration. However, with time, Vilwamangalam found the jokes and juvenile nature of the child irritating and he once scolded him. He disappeared after this event announcing the fact that if he ever wanted to see him again he would have to search him in Ananthankat forest. Soon the Muni realized that it was Lord Narayana and went to the forest in search of the child.
