The merchant was very sad with this incident and came Harisiddhi Mata temple and prayed to her and requested the Maa to help him get his wrecked ships back. He always  requested Maa that from now no ships of any merchants should burn and wreck.

The mother said to test Jagadu, “If you resign coyote to her at every step, I would need come down. Jagadu consent the Mataji’s condition and sacrificed one animal at every step, but when the last four steps were left, he was left with no animal to sacrifice, then Jagadusha sacrificed his son, two wives and sacrificed himself at the last step.
