They heard a voice there requesting them to take that box to a secluded place. After that, the Pandavas go to Kamarhati with that box. Seeing a sheep herder there, Ratnayayakasha was so impressed that he requested to stay there. He told the Pandavas and the herdsman that he was born at this place and that the woman who gave birth to him used to worship snakes. He was born from her womb, along with nine sons.
