One day, taking a chance, he killed the king and buried the body under a peepal tree in the forest. Due to premature death, the king’s soul became a phantom and started residing on the Peepal tree. That spirit used to trouble everyone who passed through that path. One day a sage was passing through that path. The phantom spirit came down from the tree with the aim of disturbing them too. The sage learned the reason behind his becoming a phantom by his penance. The sage preached the divine knowledge to the spirit soul and himself kept a fast on Apara Ekadashi to free the king from the phantom yoni. On the completion of the fast on the day of Dwadashi, the virtue of the fast was given to the phantom. After attaining the virtue of fasting on Ekadashi, the king became free from Pretyoni and went to heaven.
