Once Brahma and the other gods asked Vishnu, who his most devoted follower was. Vishnu  named King Rantideva as his most devout devotee. He had given up his kingdom and had been chanting Vishnu's name while fasting for forty eight days. Rantideva giving his meal to a BrahminRantideva believed Vishnu lived in all human beings. The gods decided to test Rantideva by seeing if  he would share his food after his long fast. Just as Rantideva was about to eat his meal, a Brahmin appeared and begged him for food. Rantideva gave him half his share. The Brahmin blessed him and went away.

In this way, all the gods changed their form and begged Rantideva for food, and he gladly gave them his share. Yama tested him by appearing as an untouchable who needed water. Rantideva willingly gave him water. The gods were very happy. Vishnu appeared and blessed Rantideva and granted him moksha which means freedom from all worldly troubles.
