Though he used to wander in the burial grounds and in the mountains, his face glitters similar to million suns, and he contains a gigantic shape. He was always praised by the saints, sages and by the divine gods, and he never gets pride on him, and he always remains as a humble sage. His top and bottom of the body cannot be seen even by the divine personalities, since he is having the entire universe in his divine body.
