On this question of the deities, immediately a flame came out from the radiant and radiant body of Lord Shiva, which was moving in the direction of Nabha and Hades. Then Mahadev said to Brahma and Vishnu ji – The first of you both will reach the end of this light. There, it is the best. After this Brahma and Vishnu set out to reach the end of the eternal flame.
