Sages, who had been listening to the tale narrated by Jaimini with rapt attention till then asked–

‘What did Indradyumna next do after the idol of Lord Nrisimha had been installed?’

Sage Jaimini replied–‘After the idol of Lord Nrisimha had been installed, Indradyumna began making preparations  for  Ashwamedha  yagya.  He sent  invitations  to  all  the deities,  learned brahmins and sages. When everybody arrived, he made a special request to Indra to remain present at the oblation site till the completion of one thousand Ashwamedha yagyas. Indra assured Indradyumna of his full cooperation and advised him to go ahead with his plan of accomplishing one thousand Ashwamedha yagyas. Finally, Indradyumna performed the first yagya under the supervision of learned priests. This way, he was able to successfully accomplish nine hundred and ninety nine yagyas without any problem. Finally, when the last Ashwamedha yagya was being performed, Indradyumna had a divine glimpse of Lord Vishnu while he was engrossed in his meditation. Indradyumna narrated his experience to Narada to which he got a reply that it was a good omen, which proved that the king was going to see Lord Jagannath with his mortal eyes.’
