When Durvasa returned from his bath, he knew exactly what had happened, and was angry.
He tore a hair from his tuft and charged it to kill Ambarisha.
The king was unmoved.
The discus of Lord Vishnu destroyed the power of the hair of Durvasa.
It now followed the Rishi wherever he went and tried to destroy him.
Rishi Durvasa went to Brahma and Shiva for help, but to no avail.
He went to Lord Hari who said to him,
“I am dependent on My devotees. My heart is in the possession of My devotees. Go thou, therefore, to Ambarisha; beg his pardon and thou shalt be saved.”
Ambarish thereupon prayed to the charged hair to desist from its course, and saved the Rishi.
Durvasa thanked him from the bottom of his heart.
