After growing his son when asked by the Markandeya the cause of their sadness the saint Mrikandu told his son the cause of their sadness.

Markandeya started the recitation of Maha mrityunjaya mantra before a Shivlinga to get the blessing of a long life in order to please his parents. When the death time came messengers of Lord of the Death came there to take the life of Markandeya but could not take his life due to the impact of Shiv Mantra.

After that Lord of death Yamraj himself came to take Markandeya. Seeing him Markandeya wrapped Shivlinga with his hands and surrendered himself to the mercy of Lord Shiva.
