There lived a brahmana by name Devasharma in the south. He lived an ideal life following his household duties (tretagni upasana, bhagavad aradhana, helping atithi etc..). He also performed many yajna-s with utmost shraddha
Even after leading an ideal life, his mind was at great unease. He was very disturbed & wanted a solution to it

He went to a nearby forest where tapasvi-s were meditating. He did all kind of sushrusha (service) to them & finally one managed to tell his problem to one of them
That rishi suggested him to meet a cow-herder by name Mitravan in a place called Punya near Godavari Banks.

Devasharma met him at a grazing land in Punya-nagari. His face was absolutely shining & radiating with great calm.

In the olden days, there lived a brahmana by name susharma. Even though he was born in a dvija family, he did not follow any of his kula dharma.

Susharma committed many heinous sins & was bringing shame to the entire clan
Yama-raja decided enough was enough & then made him die a gruesome death..

Susharma was then forced to spend a huge time on naraka. Once his sins were compensated for, he re-incarnated as a bull in earth
The bull (Susharma) was taken in by an exhibitionist. It spent a few years dancing, entertaining & grazing.

One fine day, the bull got a grievous injury. It was so severe that it almost threatened it's life.
