पृष्ठभागोऽयं यन्त्रेण केनचित् काले काले मार्जयित्वा यथास्रोतः परिवर्तयिष्यते। तेन मा भूदत्र शोधनसम्भ्रमः। सज्जनैः मूलमेव शोध्यताम्।

AGNIPA : Son of a Brahmin named Vedanidhi. Once five gandharva maidens named Pramodinī, Suśīlā, Susvarā, Sutārā and Candrikā fell in love with him and requested him to marry them. Being a strict Brahmacārin Agnipa was offended by this request and so he cursed them and turned them into fiends. Veda- nidhi pitied them and sought the advice of sage Lomaśa as to how those unfortunate maidens could be redeemed from the curse. According to Lomaśa's advice the five maidens bathed in the holy lake of Prayāgatīrtha and regained their original forms. Then obeying the instructions of sage Lomaśa Agnipa married all these five gandharva maidens. (Chapters 128 and 129, Uttarakhaṇḍa, Padma Purāṇa).
